Out of Commission!


Hey gang! I am moving around as little as possible today as I think my foot is either broken or sprained; when we were in R.I., our hotel room was steaming hot, so I tried to open the window. I couldn't get much leverage b/c the heater was in the way, so I squatted on top of the heater cover, gave it my best clean jerk, and BAM! the friggin' heater cover falls away from the wall that it wasn't even attached to, and I land on my foot right on the edge of the wood. Amy and I can literally see it swell like a balloon within like, a minute! I thought for sure it was broken, but, long story short; I iced the Hell out of it, was able to limp around and enjoy the rest of the trip, and it gradually felt better.
Cut to this past Sunday - we go up to Bethel & I try out the new skate park there. I have one good wipeout, but I shake it off and skate a little more. Next morning it is KILING me! It hurts even more this morning, so I made a doctor's appointment for tomorrow, but I hope I can wait that long as I can barely put any weight on it, and it's wicked swollen again as you can see in the pic. AND, we are set to close on Monday and start moving in, so I really don't see how the timing could be more perfect!

  4. Yeah, I had my X-Rays and it's not broken; just badly bruised. They gave me Vicodin for the pain, so I was feelin' pretty groovy last night! Now I just have to stay off it as much as pssible so I'll be able to do some heavy lifting as we are moving into our new house next week. Thanks for the kind words!
