(*Edited the title to say to "broke" because they just called this morning, letting me know it is a fracture, dangit. )
... at least we think it's a sprain. I just had an x-ray to rule out a fracture, but we won't have the results until tomorrow, because the diagnostic center in the same building as my PCP was short-staffed and behind schedule, today. However, I'm pretty sure it's just a sprain, and so is my doc ...
Actually, it looks much better than it did this morning, after elevating it for the last hour.
Just goes to show you, you can't always tell by the way it looks - a foot or ankle sprain often can bruise and swell worse than a fracture.
And I'm really good with pain, so that's not a way to tell, either, at least for me - mostly I can just tell because I can still walk on it. And it really doesn't hurt that badly - it just aches if I've been walking on it too much. Even then, mostly it's just annoying lol.Regardless, not to worry - I have an excellent Nursemaid/Shepherdess Sheltie right beside me, named Brookie ... ;)
The good news is, Mark is going to cook for us tonight. Well, more accurately, he's asked for directions on how to cook the meat loaf I had planned.
Hey, my husband and dog are waiting on me - not such a bad deal, after all? ;)
