Ouch!

I end up doing a lot of activities with the boys at the school on my days off. (What does that say about my social life?) Yesterday morning I played basketball with a bunch of the seniors at the school while everyone else was taking tests. At the end of the game a few of us were playing "21" when I came down and landed on a kid's foot. My ankle rolled hard and I heard a pop, then my knee kind of buckled the other direction. I hit the floor in pain and had a bad feeling this was more serious than other times I had rolled my ankle. As I squirmed around on the floor, with the boys just kind of watching with concern and not knowing what they should do, I tried to figure out how I was going to get the boys' back to the facility and get myself to the doctor. A few minutes passed, along with the initial pain, and I decided I would try to get up and put a little pressure on it and see how badly it was hurt. Fortunately, it seemed to be OK and I walked the kids back to the facility and hobbled home to put some ice on my ankle and try to stay off it. The swelling started to go down a little bit, and I went and voted and got things ready for an election night activity I was doing with the boys that night. It's still swollen now, but I don't think it's as serious as I initially thought it might be, so that's good....probably just not much ball for the next week or two.

OOOOUUUUCCHHHH! That looks awful! Are you sure it's not broken?! Maybe you just need another bowl of mom's special soup. Hope you're okay!

First of all you need a pedicure. Second of all I think that is BROKEN!

Probably not broken but at minimum a talofibular ligamentous rupture, if not a little inferior extensor retinacular tear. You want a good ankle brace?
Life is good?

Honestly, I thought I may have broken it, at least a hair-line fracture. But I'm getting around on it and I think it may fall in the sprain category. I hope. And what happens tonight??? We have three boys try to run. lol I wonder if they factored my ankle into their run plans. Don't worry...we got 'em.
Hey, Amo, my feet are pretty!

don't be so sure it's not broken--i walked (hobbled) on my foot for a day or two before i found out it was shattered.

Oh man Jordon, that bites! I'm piping in for having it checked because that is what the side of my foot looked like when I broke it. And I could walk around on it...at least have it checked! (sorry the mom in me talking). Hope it's doing better.
