what rotten luck...

I promise I do really have pictures but when you find out what happened you will forgive me. Well, the rush is over and so is school! This school year has flown by for me. Well, john and I finished our HCG diet. Tomorrow is the last day! yeah we made it! we will start again on 6 weeks to lose the rest of that icky fat! Well, I was in a hurry on Wednesday to get lots of things done before the kids were out of school. You know how it is! Anyway I was walking down the basement stairs and I thought I was at the bottom but...guess what? i wasn't! I did end up getting to the bottom rather quickly. i landed on the outside of my right foot and heard a nice "pop" noise. I have never had a sprain or a break so I didn't know what to do so I said, "YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!". I called John (crying loudly) and had to leave a message. I knew my friend, kenice, was helping at field day so I decided to just stand up or lay there forever. I got up and found it was sore but didn't hurt to bad. then, i continued on with what I was doing. By the time I got to the main floor again, I knew something wasn't right. I took of my sock and shoe and my ankle was huge and my foot was getting fatter. i ended up going to the doctor (thanks to my sweet daughter, Kodey, who drove me there) and I have torn a ligament or sprained it! the doctor gave me a lovely air cast and said i have to wear it for 2 weeks! Is he kidding...2 weeks?!! during summer vacation?! I have to many fun things to do with my kids! Well, the swelling is going down and I can put more and more pressure in it every day but today I did a little too much and so...it is hurting tonight. I would like to clarify that this is our first sprain in the Thill house ever! Not bad when you think about it like that! So, we had only a picnic, pool party with popsicles, pizza/movie night today! No driving anywhere for a fun mini celebration! Oh well, this to shall pass but.......TWO WEEKS!?

Oh man! That is rotten luck! I hope you heal quickly! I think it is funny that you say "all you did was a pool party". lol. Even doing that much takes a lot of effort! Love ya Casey!

You poor thing. I hope you heal super fast. It really stinks to have a rain cloud hanging over you when you have so many fun things planned.

Crazy luck alright! That really stinks but I know you and you will make the most of it and for sure will be creative in getting through it all, remember it will heal faster and better if you give yourself time to relax, right!

holy smokes! First, amazing for being only the first strain of the house, but not so amazing that it had to be you! Any luck just getting pampered for 2 weeks?
