So, Saturday evening my sister, Darla, and I were having a couple of friends over for dinner and we decided to grill out. YUM! Well, we had gone up and down our back porch steps several times messing with the grill and taking stuff in and out. Well, Darla was messing with the grill trying to get the flames up and going and I was standing there talking to her (on the top step) and out of nowhere the steps just collapsed!!! Yes, while I was ON them! So I'm screaming as I'm falling flat out. I tried to get up and couldn't. Darla was also trying to help me get up but I couldn't hardly move. Then she saw my foot and it had immediately bruised and it was black and blue. It was HUGE!!! It looked like someone placed a boiled egg on my foot!! So we finally managed to get myself up off the ground and hopped back up to the house level. I was just sitting there but I felt queezy. So, Darla went and got me a glass of water and turned the fan on. When she got back and gave me the water, I fainted on her!!! So down I go again!! Good thing it was from the sitting position that time! So Darla finally woke me up and when I 'came back too' I couldn't figure out why Darla was yelling my name and why I was in her lap and everything. lol So she laid me out on the floor and then I was okay. Whew! So, now I'm just hopping along everywhere because it's hard to walk. Especially with a big ole bandage on it. Anyway, thank God it wasn't any worse than it is. I'm probably going to go to the Dr tomorrow just to make sure I didn't fracture anything. If you see the picture...you can tell where the whole top and part of the side of my foot is one big bruise! Ouch!! It looks tons better than what it did!
**UPDATE** September 7, 2007- My foot is doing alot better. The pain has reduced and the swelling has gone down even more! I thought I was going to have crutches, but thankfully not! Thank God its getting better! Can't wait till its all the way better!!
