Oopsy! Big oopsy!
I woke up yesterday feeling great and ready to sew! Before I even drank my coffee, I went up to the studio to bring down some fabric circles - it was hexie pincushion time!
Coming back down the stairs, I missed the last step and landed (still in my nightgown) in the floor. Hubby took me to the Urgent Care Center; it was a real adventure just getting me in the car.
X-rays say it isn't broken - just very badly sprained. I cannot put any weight on it without excruciating pain. So I'm in an Ace bandage, resting, elevating, icing, and compressing. I have crutches to use to get to the bathroom. The doctor said it should be 50% better after 3 days, but I haven't seen or felt any improvement yet. If it's not significantly better by the end of the week I'm supposed to go back and get x-rayed again.
Hubby stayed home from work yesterday and today to be my legs, but I'm sending him back tomorrow. The daughters can both come help me at lunch time and I'm thinking I'll let them.
Since it's my right foot I can't drive until it get a LOT better. I'm wondering if I could get upstairs to my studio by scooting on my bottom? Until then I do have some fabric circles to make hexies and I have all my Sue Sprargo projects. So I will survive. I shouldn't complain because so many people have problems so much worse than mine. I'm lucky that I like hand sewing. I can sit in my recliner and sew and watch TV, so it could be so much worse!
