Check out this Ankle!!

So after we got back from our cruise and I was uber frustrated trying to find affordable transportation back to the airport, an airport shuttle came and I was so very happy....until I stepped off the curb....that was like two feet down.  I'm not kidding when I say it was that far down.  It was CRAZY.  So, with 2 bags, 1 purse, and a booster seat in my arms, I so gracefully fell to the cement.  It hurt SO bad.  I sat there and did the dry cry (meaning no tears).  I declined medical service and just gave myself a couple minutes to recoop.  By the time I got up, I thought I was going to throw-up.  I picked my seat near the luggage rack and elevated my leg.  I seriously thought I was going to pass out.  Luckily, the drive was about 30 minutes and by the time we got there, I was walking fine.  I had to be careful about twisting cause it would pull something and I would feel the pain all over again.  My paramedic friend checked it out that night and it was sprained.  Luckily, I have seriously big bones and stuff cause it didn't cause to much after pain.  However, I woke up this morning (a week later) my ankle was swollen again.


Seriously cool, right?!! I've got seriuosly thick, flat feet, but it's all good.  My ankle never went black and blue, but I was quite satisfied with swelling.  My first sprained ankle...EVER.  Again, I'm not limping and it doesn't hurt to walk, but putting pressure on it is not enjoyable.  I am careful how I move it, but no major damage.
Sorry, not crafty, but it's fun any way, right?
