Yesterday I slipped on our van’s stairs. I felt and heard a definite pop. And then pain. So much pain. X-rays showed I did not break my foot. It’s just a bad sprain. But ouch! It hurts to put any weight on it. I have been reduced to hobbling. No walking for me.
My foot is bruised and up on some pillows to reduce the swelling. Every time I do any walking at all it swells up so fast and that hurts worse. So here I am instructed to do some Rest, Ice, (no Compression since that could damage my foot further), and Elevation. Things like this keep life exciting anyway.
