Yep what a dumb thing I did Saturday evening, to just walk on the back lawn and collapse on my right ankle only to rolley-polley onto my left one which shattered it. So dh is there with his first -aid book reading through it and asking me questions while I'm intermittently bellowing in pain....funny to look back on but not so at the time. Finally the kids got me upright and sort of man-handled me inside. Dh said as it was almost certainly just a sprain to put ice on it and they'd check after they got back from Mass.Dd decided to stay home with me.

Well after they left my good friend Mary came round + bundled me into her car and up to Modbury A+E where after 4 hours in pain they told me I'd smashed some bones in my ankle broken some bone in the heel and did some pretty impressive ligament damage.The orthopaedic surgeon was very pleased to hear we had private cover and wrote a referral to a see a specialist on Monday.
Anyway to cut it short had op on Tuesday + am horizontal for 6 weeks doctor's orders.thank you so much for your kind thoughts + prayers.

Oh dear, I hope you recover you soon!
Such a thing has never happened to me, but I can not imagine how bad it is. Hope you will be better soon!

I haven't been online much recently, so I've only just seen this. I wish I were there to help!

The kids and I will pray for a quick and complete healing.
