I am out of commission.
Two nights ago, my sweet hubby took me out for a birthday dinner...just the two of us. We went to Bonefish Grill. Oh my! How we LOVE that place!
We had a YUMMY, relaxing, wonderful dinner, and then, disaster!
We were walking back out to the car, and as I stepped off of the curb, into the parking lot, down I went!
It was one of those areas, right above a gutter, where it dips down further than you expect it to...
How embarrassing, and HOW PAINFUL!
Oh my gosh, if I had not been so overcome with sheer humiliation, I think I would have broken down and cried from the pain, right there in the parking lot! Corey helped me get up, and then held on to me with a death grip because I was about to faint as I struggled to get back to the car...I'm so bad about that.
The last time I had an injury that amounted to anything, Corey and I were photographing a wedding, and I fell and broke my finger. I passed out, not once, but twice, right there in the middle of all of the wedding buzz...talk about making a scene.
Oh, and did I mention how embarrassing it was when I awoke from the second fainting spell to see the ambulance crew standing over me?
Anyway, back to my story...
I did quite a number on my ankle, and haven't been able to put any weight on it since. Not cool when you have a busy household, that also happens to include a busy toddler!
My in-laws came over yesterday to help out, and even brought some KFC for dinner, which we all greatly appreciated!
Carson had Mother's Day Out today...YEA! That helped!
Corey and the two older kiddos have really kicked it into high gear to cover for me too. I am so thankful! I know that with Corey working, and the older kids having school, the house is not going to run as it normally would, but they are trying to keep things together, and I appreciate it!
My mom is out of town. Otherwise, I know that she would be here, helping me out. No doubt about that...she is my BFF! :)
I must admit that I feel very guilty with others having to work extra hard in order for me to sit around. That is tough, but I guess there are times when we all have to give up a little bit of control, and allow others to help us...even if it isn't what we would choose.
Since I don't really have many options at this point, I will just have to accept that this is the way it is. I will try to express to my family how thankful I am for their help. I will make a point to use this time wisely. I have LOTS of computer work that I can get knocked out while sitting around.
From what I hear, surely within the next few days, things should start getting better...hopefully enough that I can at least put a little bit of weight on my foot, and get around the house. I am already getting some more movement, so that is a good sign.
Thank you, my sweet family for helping me out!
I love you all!
