OUCH.

So, I fell today. It was so stupid and I was actually holding Wyatt at the time. We were walking to the bedroom so I could put him down for a nap and I tripped over a stupid toy and went flying through the air. And our heads banged together and he wasn't happy about that. You know that kind of crying where they turn blue and are silent? Yeah, that's what he was looking like. So I was panicked, looking and grabbing all over him, looking for a broken bone or something. He was fine, but when we got up I realized I couldn't put any weight on my foot. It was terrible!

I ended up taking some Motrin from way back when I had Wyatt. And I crawled to the bathtub and took a hot soak. I'm feeling a lot better and I can put about 20 percent of my weight down on it now. Lucky for me I have a Podiatrist Uncle that I called. He said that if it's not better by tomorrow that I should go and get it x-rayed. It's just so hard with Wyatt! Imagine it. Carrying him to the car as I'm limping, driving to the hospital, and then limping inside... and still having to care for Wyatt. I'm hoping it gets better by tomorrow because I really don't feel like dealing with all of that.





I'm sorry for my offensively ugly feet.

  2. OH NO!!! You should definitely be icing that every chance you get! I hope it gets better - I know it's hard to deal with a kid at the doctor's office, but the workers understand. Take care of YOU!
