I Have No Clever Title

As a result of one of those completely stupid series of events, I sprained my ankle today. (The xrays were not conclusive because I was shivering when they did them, but there's no displacement of any bones, so the treatment is the same regardless of whether the ankle is broken or sprained.)

There's a long story here, including amorous goats and forty-four year old women trying (unsuccessfully) to climb over gates to save said goat, but they gave me morphine at the hospital and a prescription for jumbo Vicodin, so I'm a little on the slow side right now.

So I'm lying here in the family room on the couch, ankle propped up and head a little swimmy. I thought I could write more, but I was wrong.

All sympathetic ooh-aahs will be very much appreciated.

At least you got some Vicodin out of the ordeal, huh? I bet you're in a happy, happy place...

Aw, shoot. I'm sorry about that. Yeah, the whole sprained or broken ankle thing...you just have to let it heal over time on its own, right? Keep weight off and all that? Cold packs? Hot packs? Bummer. Anyone willing to wait on you? :)

Just lay back, dream, and celebrate a state of do-nothing-ness and before long you'll be back and up and at it full swing.

Karen,

I hope its not too bad. I sprained my ankle badly almost 2 years ago and it was the beginning of a lot of change for me. Take care.

oh, Karen, I feel so bad for you and your poor ankle! And all to save that good-for-nothin'/used to be cute little goat.

When you feel better, please post the whole story for us. I have a feeling it's worthy of publication. Maybe even a short story?

Feel better : )
