Sticks and stones may break my bones, but luckily not this time. This morning I was out mowing the front lawn, and suddenly noticed my dog running down the street. She loves to "fence fight", and ran to the neighbor's garage to bark at her dogs that spend the day in the garage. I ran over to get her, and in the process sprained my ankle. :S
I knew I had kind of sprained it, and at the time I thought, "Wow, this is a bad sprain." But I was able to continue walking okay, and I resumed my day as normal. I even went out to Costco and walked all around! Then I went to go pick up my son from school, and all the way there my foot began hurting more and more. I actually began to think it was broken. After I picked him up, I headed straight for Kaiser, and had him get me a wheel chair. They took x-rays, and thankfully it isn't broken, but it is a severe sprain.
So now I'm in a walking boot with crutches for two weeks. :S I'm not complaining though. I'm just thrilled it isn't broken!!
