Ha Tony I wish it was something so exciting that caused it.
Nope just stepped off my deck into a hole. My left foot turned completely
Sideways. Oh the pain was intense. I called out to my one son whose room was closest.
My husband and two sons came out. I have been experiencing vertigo for quite sometime
So when I fell I got real dizzy. The pain caused me to sweat profusely, be extremely dizzy,
I was very faint, I could feel myself going down, my speech was almost inaudible, I couldn't see or hear.
I had this same response to pain in January before I had my carpal tunnel surgery.
I couldn't move for about 30 minutes or so. They carried me inside. My husband said it doesn't look to bad,
Not extremely swollen or discolored. He is so used to getting hurt at work, using electrical.tape for bandages and moving on. I also think it has to do with his drug years, when someone overdosed they would hold them up and just try to have the person walk it off. He said there were times when someone really needed to go to the ER, they would put them by the ER door and then leave them there. I guess fear of getting caught with drugs or being an accomplice to their overdose.
They put me in bed, elevated my leg, and put ice on it.
Sunday morning a bit more swollen and discolored. I had pain with numbness and tingling in my toes.
We had crutches here and I wrapped it with a ace bandage. Went to church and out to dinner with friends.
As the day went on it got worse.
Now this morning my whole foot was discolored and very swollen, like I could pop it with a pin.
Off to the ER I went.
The ligaments tore from the fibula and pulled some bone fragments with it.
They cast it, I am on crutches, bed rest to follow up with an orthopedic doctor.
The pain, tingling and numbness,swelling and discoloration has increased.
I am very hard to keep down. It is already driving me crazy to ask someone to get or do.something
For me. I pray this doesn't go on for weeks. No gym, no walks, this the worst. Going to the beach in a cast.
I have never broken a bone in my life.
Please pray for my patience and healing,
