Well not really in my butt, but in my ankle. When you are all alone it’s also in the butt. I fell down 7 concrete steps last night. I am actually lucky, it could have been much worse, more than a sprain.
I iced it all last night and decided it might be fine by morning, and I would decide what to do then. I went to urgent care. Luckily it’s my left foot, so I can drive.
I’m coping. I moved the laptop to the couch and I am keeping it elevated and iced according to my instructions. I am not a fan of crutches so I am only up as I need to be.
I did okay today, I had to eat more often because of the Motrin. I’m not a fan of the stuff, nor is it a fan of me, therefore I only take it with food.
I’m in a removable splint so I will ride out the night then take it off in the AM to see how things look and take a bath. That will feel good.
Tomorrow I am going to do a squash saute for lunch, if I can stand for that long. Standing on one foot is tough business when you aren’t used to it. I got pretty sore and tired doing the dishes tonight. I had eggs for breakfast, salad for lunch (with lentils) and lentils and a baked potato for dinner. The baked potato was heaven. All of it was easy to fix. Tomorrow I will eat eggs again for breakfast, the squash saute for lunch and dinner (with Tempeh) and then I have enough food for Thursday but will have to go shopping. I’m searching for a friend to meet at the store to push my cart and help me get the groceries home.
