...a trip to the park...and an ER visit :(

Yesterday afternoon I took the kids down to the pond to feed the ducks and just hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather...only to have it end with a horrible fall taken by me! To make matters worse I didn't have my cell phone and we had walked there and THERE WAS NO WAY we would be walking back...I stepped down and over top of this big boulder and I heard this very loud crrraaaccckkkkkk. I knew immediately that was a very bad sign. I looked around and didn't see anyone but the kids but knew I was going to need help...luckily there was a golfer near by and I sent Ben to ask him if he had a cell phone...BEN TO THE RESCUE :) We called Stuart and had him come and get us...to make a long story short my xrays did not show a break but I will be going to the foot specialist next week to check any damage done to the ligaments. In the meantime I am in an aircast and on crutches - in alot of pain and have some awesome pain meds! All I can say is THANK GOODNESS I didn't break my hand or my arm ;) Here's some photos I took right before the accident...

I'm so glad it's not broken! When I saw your post on the forum that you thought it might be broken, I was worried!!

So, my husband knows your family! He recognized your last name and said he knew your family. I think your husband's parents are friends with my inlaws. Small world!!

I'm so excited you've joined my team :)

I'm so glad it's not broken and you better stay off it like the doctor said. Mom says too! :)

So glad to hear it's not broken. Hope there's no ligament damage or anything, too. At least you got a few photos to scrap before it happened! J/K.

So glad you didn't break anything! Super cute pictures of the kids.

Well, from what I was told when I hurt my ankle . . . you'll probably wish you did break it. The injuries to the ligaments and tendons are a whole lot worse. Hoping you don't have to have surgery on yours like I did though . . . that wasn't FUN! So stay on those crutches . . . you know I'll know if your not using them! You did get some cute pictures though!

YOUR NOT USING YOUR CRUTCHES . . . your going to be sorry! You really should be listening to me and that Dr.

Dang Renee! Hope you're up and running a marathon soon! J/K. At least you got some really cute pics of the kids before you hurt your foot. It'll give you something to do why you're immobile.
