I slipped on the ice on my way home from school this morning. Heard a snapping noise that could have come from my ankle or wrist , wasn't sure which at the time . Rolled over, checked the wrist which seemed ok, on to the ankle , not so good.
Why is it that there is never anyone around when you need help ?
Struggled home ,thankfully not too far , and phoned hubby who came home from work and took me to hospital .
Three hours of waiting and two X-rays showed no obvious fractures, but lots of soft tissue damage , a very bad sprain which feels like a whole lot more.
Quite a lot of pain and discomfort , which I've been told will in all likelihood be worse tomorrow.
I've been told to rest with it elevated most of the time , but walk around for short periods every hour or so. I really know about it when I sit back down.
Making good use of a walking stick and going upstairs backwards as it hurts less ? Go figure .
Anyway , the swelling has gone down a little now .
So ,take care out there when it's icy guys , it happens when you're least expecting it.
