I've fallen and I can't get up

I am not going to be doing my usual Favorite things Friday today because I am hurting and I can't really think of a favorite thing right now...unless you consider not being in pain would be one of my favorite things. Anyway...

So I guess me being the giver that I am, I decided that I did not want my sister to feel lonely with her knee pain. So I figured the best way to accomplish that would be a trip off the porch the hard way. I stepped on my steps and they were COVERED in ice and I went flying. I landed hard on both my knees, one a little worse then the other. My right knee is swollen and I can barely walk on it. I went and got x-rays at urgent care and they said it is not broken but they couldn't see much because of the swelling and I wouldn't (couldn't) let them move it much. They said to make an appointment with my doc (which is a project in itself) and get an MRI. So I am now laid up on my couch hurting :( So sorry if I don't get much commenting in today. I will try to catch up later. I don't want to break my iron commenter streak.

I hope all of you are doing better then I am. Have a great weekend!

Note: To all that wondered how to do the cross out on blogger go to this web page and it will tell you how. http://blogger-tricks.blogspot.com/2008/02/display-strike-crossed-out-or-cancelled.html

Ouch! You are such a great sister! Praying for a quick heal - I hope you are on your feet again soon.

CJ said...

Oh NO! I'm sorry you are hurting! Keep your feet up and let DH pamper you this weekend. :)

Oh No! Keep it elevated, a pillow under it works wonders. Stay off your feet and let your DH take care of you. Hope you feel better soon.

Melissa said...

Oh man i hope your leg feels better soon! stupid ice!

Jamie said...

Your poor knees!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog -- and for the link to the crossout thingie. I've always wondered how you do that!

Oooooowwwwwiiiiee! You pulled what I pulled last week... stupid icy winter steps. I ended up with a bruised back and whiplash though, rather than busting up my ankle... but I'm sure the steps sentiments were the same... Ungh.

Feel better soon. I hope the doc at least gave you some good drugs hun. (*HUGS*)

Another Dreamer said...

Geesh... I meant *knee* not *ankle*.

Liddy said...

OUCH! Feel better. And meeting up with doctors while injured. Oh that is a chore. I had to go to a pediatrician (because he was the only one available that day) when I broke my tailbone, he treated me like I was five. Wishing you the best with the Iron Commentator!

oh no!!! I'm so sorry to hear you're hurt. And landing on your knees - it hurts just thinking about it. But, surely, this entitles you to some special treatment? Breakfast in bed?

Hope you feel better soon!
