Well...as some of you may know, Thursday was my birthday! And you may be wondering why you didn't hear from me on Friday...and/or why there was no MDS Monday post this morning...
My birthday did NOT go as planned...to say the least! At about 11:35 a.m, just after putting my daughter down for her nap, I fell down the stairs. My right ankle immediately swelled up to the size of a softball & being 25 weeks pregnant, I was scared! I called my husband at work & he came home right away. After looking at my ankle he said we were going to the ER to make sure it wasn't broken & that I should call my OB as well...
Just about noon...shortly after the fall & a little ice.
Even after HOURS in the ER, I still managed to get some smiles out of my 2 favorite people!
Diagnosis: Sprained Ankle, Bruised Knee, Hip, Hand & Shoulder...
Stay off of it as much as possible (couldn't put any pressure on it anyway), elevate & ice.
When we finally got out of the ER, we went to get some dinner at IHOP. None of us had eaten anything but a couple snacks since breakfast that morning... We didn't make it back home til after 8:30 p.m. & I can honestly say that I was exhausted at that point. :( I had an appointment with my OB on Friday morning anyway...so it was ice on the couch for a little while & then to bed.
The OB appointment went well, but it was a challenge to get there on the crutches...got some better meds that are safe to take with the 'Bun', although actually getting that prescription was yet another challenge... Luckily a friend & his Mom were able to come help me for the rest of the day so that hubby could go to work.
The weekend was a blur of sleeping & icing my ankle...the meds make me drowsy...& hubby has been an amazing help during my inability to do all the things I normally do every day. I'm not good at 'resting'...especially when I can't even get to my computer as often as I would like to.
My daughter woke up with a cough on Friday morning & it got worse over the weekend, so we took her to the Dr this morning too...just a little cold, not even any prescription unless she doesn't get better by this weekend...so that is good!!
There is no MDS Monday post today because the MDS Monday Challenge includes watercolor washes...& I don't have any of the stamp sets that include the washes yet! Shocking, I know! But with the recent unexpected medical expenses, I might have to wait a few weeks before I purchase any more crafting supplies...although Sale-a-bration starts TOMORROW & you can get FREE Exclusive Sale-a-bration items for EVERY $50 you spend!
