oh, life.

 last night, i was carrying a huge & very full hamper down the 3 flights of concrete stairs to the laundry room. instead of it going as planned, i fell down 8 steps and landed with all of my body weight along the heavy hamper atop of me, with my foot curled under all of it in such a way that i managed to hurt myself a bit. i went straight to the ER after the twins were off to school, because i could not walk. (i took two buses and it was quite a sight! a real change retailer offered me his cane (i refused but thanked him)after a lot of blood pressure tests, (106/63, wtf?), 3 x-rays and a lot of pain, the diagnosis? 1 chipped bone and 2 fractured bones (those little bird like bones that run vertical on the top of yr foot) in my left foot. crutches and an ugly boot for 4-6 weeks. oh, yay.

Re: OWIE
Ugh. I wish one could send pharmaceuticals through the mail. The doctors around here practically throw vicodin or oxycontin at you...

My ex broke similar bones in his foot once and they healed pretty quickly. I hope you heal quickly too.
