Woe is me

Apparently I have decided that Friday will be a very bad day. No, don't try to change my mind, I have already made up my mind.

I messed up my ankle rather well yesterday. Luckily I have a bone doctor in the house that proceeded to giggle and make jokes about my pain. (this is where I cross my arms and huff). Ice, an ace bandage, elevated foot and anti-inflammatory where prescribed.

I hurt so much last night, that I repetitively woke myself up crying out and leg throbbing. Even this morning I am having a whole lot of trouble with it. Now let's top in off with this wonderful head cold I seem to have discovered in the middle of the night. The ache in my joints is not making this injury feel any better.

I might whine, complain, and gritch, but I still have many things to do.

I pulled Murrial's treats yesterday because she wasn't coming over, even though I was the two feet away she required. It seemed to have done the trick, because when I went out to milk, she made her way up to the barn. I gave her the treats. She is still weary, but she needs those treats.

ok I need to go ice my ankle again, maybe soak in a bath as well. Wish there was more to tell you. If you got a subject you would like more info on next week, let me know. Otherwise we are going to talk about caring for newborn goats.

Hope you are better. Granny always used an epson salt bath for sprains.

If your ankle hurts that much, might it be broken?!? I broke mine without ever knowing how, but it sure burned and disturbed my sleep!

Hope you feel better soon!

Gail, your grandmother is wise, that was my plan.

Lisa, no not broken. My husband took a look at it. Managed to mummble off some latin word and we tended it.

Hey Phelan...sorry to hear about the ankle! Makes me hurt to even think about it...

Soaking is about the only thing sometimes that will help...

Hope the new girl comes around soon...

Sorry about the ankle, and not to doubt the main man, but without an x-ray... well, just sayin'.

We worry.

I'm sorry about your ankle. I hope it gets better soon. Do you have some crutches, so you can stay off it as much as possible?
