In case you aren't familiar with my rather dubious Super Power, it's the ability to hurt myself in new and entertaining (at least for others) ways. I could simply say I'm a clutz, but since people usually end up laughing at me, it's a lot more fun to put it this way!
This last week my Super Power has been working over time. First, last Thursday, I was getting into my car, rolled my foot slightly, and pulled a tendon on the outside of my foot. I gave it a couple of days to heal before I even tried to go to the doc, because it didn't really feel that bad. Sunday rolls around and I was planning on going in on Monday or Tuesday to have it looked right?
Well Sunday I had a migraine, but we really needed groceries so I pushed myself through a shopping trip with Mo driving. When we got home I reached into the back of the trunk to grab a bag that had slipped, and coming back out, I slammed my head on the latch for the lid to the trunk. It hurt so bad! I don't think I actually gave myself a concussion (this time) but on top of my migraine it was a little crazy.
A few hours (and some ice) later I decided I was stable enough to make dinner. Well...that didn't turn out to be the best idea I've ever had. walking between the living room and the kitchen I stepped on one of Mo's shoes and rolled my ankle. Yes, the same foot that has the pulled tendon in the foot.
I did go to the doc yesterday and we x-rayed to make sure it's just a pulled tendon in the foot. Between the foot and ankle I'm supposed to stay off my foot as much as possible for the next week. Since I can't really use crutches (too chubby, can't support my weight) I'm walking around with a cane to at least provide some relief.
Now here's the really fun part - we're flying out to Phoenix on Friday! Ben, one of Mo's cousins, is getting married. So it looks like Mo will be pushing me through the airport in a wheel chair cuz I'm really not supposed to do that much walking! LOL
