Murphys law:::::IM ON CRUTCHES NOW!!!..no shit

well i did it! i was at work, by myself, i was bored,so i found something to do, i decided to decorate our big posts outside with ribbon and garland, i was doing good, i was standing on one of walmarts flemsy outdoor chairs, well the legs gave away, i went down fast, could not stop myself, well first i wondered if i broke my legs, i got real hot, fever like, nauseated, however u spell it, then i sat on bench in tears, it hurt bad, my knee was bleeding, my elbow, and one of my ankles was sore, thankgod chiropractor was in today, he looked at it, thought it wasnt broke, but said it would hurt like hell, then it swelled up, not real bad yet, well i drove to moms on my heal, by the time i got there, i had to take sneaker off, it was so swelled then, well to make this shorter, borrowed some crutches, cant walk on it, my son took me home in my jeep, a friend of his followed us.now im here, writting,the stairs were a bitch, but the guys helped!i have muscle relaxers, but didnt get home till now to take them, they were here at the house, took some ibuprofin, so i can get some relief, can you believe this, dont know how ill feel in the morning, but doc said my knee on the other leg will be bruised pretty bad in the am, great, loll

Hell, Kat, you're not foolin' me any! You did that on purpose so you could meet the young chiropractor! How was he? I think
you should go into the court with the crutches. You'll get more sympathy from the judge that way!

Ice it down for the next 24 hours, if you can. That's for the swelling. Are you sure nothing is broken? Then heat after that. And start moving it around. It'll hurt... but it'll help.

With a little luck, you should be in court on Monday. Limping a little maybe... but there.

If you can put weight on the ankle, it isn't broken, just a sprain (I've sprained mine several times). You should have it x-rayed anyway because there can be bone splinters or cracks. The ankle should be in a soft cast for two weeks to heal. Crutches take a bit to get used to, but once you are, they are easy to use. Crutches will also help build upper body strength.

Keep on icing your ankle and keep it elevated.
