Day 6

Friday was an adventure day! I managed to drive to the Lenox Mall and have my facial at Clarins. George-Anne used the Clarisonic on me and it felt amazing, my skin felt so nice and soft. Afterwards I limped off to the Sony Store and returned my Ebook Reader power cord, they were most unhappy and tried really hard to encourage me to buy something. I successfully resisted and limped back to my car. Stopped on the way home at Whole Foods and met Matthew for lunch. I eventually meandered home and passed out on the couch for several hours as my foot was killing me.

That night we met up with Greg A and his new g/f Gwen for dinner at Ormsby a new bar in the Westside, the food was pretty good, the beer list amazing, and no smoking inside, it was just really loud. Home and to bed. I caved in to the pain and took my second Loratab of the day :(.

Next morning I felt a lot better and managed to stand for a shower, and then make a meal plan for the week:mealplan I was pretty proud of actually getting it all to work and think it all out. So then off to grocery shop and pick up mail and run some small errands. Thankfully Matthew drove :). After all was done we ended up at Carroll Street Cafe and then Anne’s house for Apples to Apples and Rock band.

Today was Spring Forward Day and work. Foot was feeling a little better, but still no putting on a shoe, so strapped up and in funny medical shoe off to work I went. The stairs at work were scary, but I did it and sat a lot of the day pricing records and running register. By six though I was pretty tired, so home for dinner: Linguine with Asparagus and Pine Nuts, and then I made Orange, Banana Crepes for dessert.

Now Matthew is trying out his culinary skills by making scones – dried cherry orange – and I am getting ready for sleep.

Day 3

So today I went to work for a few hours, I got what I needed done, but wow the standing really hurt and when I had to move it was pretty bad. I did not get a lot of the things done I wanted, no filing, no cleaning up sections, no sorting out the dance records which I have been working on weekly, but I did get the returns done.

Funny how many people stopped to ask me what happened, the homeless people were pretty concerned about me, asking if they could help all wanting me to get better soon. Though, I did find the hardest part is I could not just go to the bathroom, or go get some water or coffee, I just had to go without :(. But, thankfully /vatthew bought me some lunch and a mango tango odwalla.

I left after 2 and came home and just passed out for about three hours.

Day 2

If you have ever been to Wax’n’Facts you might have noticed our deadly stairs behind the counter. And Monday night I became a victim of them. They are uneven in height, slick and wobbly all the things you want in stairs :).

Monday night I clocked out of work and walked down them and slipped on the last two or three, not even sure. But I landed securely on my right ankle. I sat on the floor, took my shoe off, rotated my foot, whimpered in pain and decided it was not broken, but could not face getting up yet. I called Briana, cancelled gym, and thought wow, what a lot of pain! My foot already started to swell. I did notice the customer who was standing there kept asking me questions, and even though Paul’s face was filled with horror and concern, the customer ignored what was going on.

I eventually raised myself up, and decided to go home. Kindly Emily walked me to my car, as I hobbled, I kept thinking it is just a sprain, how bad can it be. I kept thinking it would pass, and just be like a minor twist. Driving home taught me it was a lot more serious. I could not push the accelerator down very far, so I inched my way along Moreland home, plus I was terrified of braking as it was a searing pain.

I made it into the house then collapsed. I did not want to eat, I felt shaky ill and slightly horrified by the fact my ankle was going blue. I spent most the night debating what to do, and losing the ability to walk. I could not move my toes and the pressure of the blanket at night was agony. Eventually at 5:30 am I woke /v\atthew Β and said I needed to go the emergency room. I quick drive to Northside Hospital, where I was placed in a wheelchair and seen straight away.

By this stage we had iced my foot and elevated it and it was still pretty awful looking. Several X-rays later and I was told it was not broken, but badly sprained and I would not be standing at work for a few days. I got my foot wrapped, and shoe thingy, some Vicoden and whatever else and we were on our way home. Looking at the form they described my foot as “acute blue” in colour!
