A productive but very painful day!

Today started out as a fantastic day. Kayl and I woke up at 11 am. We ate some breakfast and then I got him dressed and we got in the van and headed to Provo. I was able to register the car in 10 minutes. I was so surprised that it was so cheap. I thought that it would be about 200 dollars. It ended up being only 98.06 to get new plates and register it for the first time.
After we were done there Kayl and I went to Costco to order his birthday cake. He was being so good for me, so I decided to make one more stop. We went to Albertsons and ordered one more birthday cake because they have a promotion that you get your kids first birthday cake free. Yay for free cake!
We got home and Kayl went down for a nap that lasted 2 hours!! I was able to take a nap too!! I woke up 30 minutes later and Carley had come over and brought the Rug Doctor. Kayl was still asleep thankfully. Carley and I went to her car to get the vacuum. I was carrying it just fine but when we got to the stairs we had to double team it. Carley went backwards and I went forwards. We were doing fantastic until I got to the last stair. Thats when my shoe decided to be funny. It flipped over and made me roll my ankle really bad. I heard a bunch of cracking and then pain.
I had just rolled my ankle and then sat on it. I started crying when I noticed that I couldn't move my toes.
Five minutes later Todd came home and carried me to the van. Kayl was still asleep and I didn't want to wake him up so Carley and Chris babysat him while Todd took me to the Insta-care.
The doctor took some x-rays of my foot and ankle. He told me that it was really really badly sprained.
So, in conclusion I've discovered that if I ever have a perfect day again I will know that I'm going to hurt myself. Because, two days before my wedding I had another one of these perfect days and I boosted myself of the couch and as I got off my ankle rolled and snapped. This time it was 5 days before Kayl's birthday party. Just my luck huh!!

I just did the same thing!! On Aug 16th I was dusting a shelf, standing on a chair. I stepped down off the chair & onto the dog's bone....rolled my ankle! I went to the hospital. No breaks, just a bad sprain. I was in a boot for almost 6 weeks then a brace for 4 more & physical therapy. I literally was just cleared yesterday (Kayl's Bday). No more brace or therapy. Yea! The specialist did tell me to be careful for a few more months & no high heels. Sprains take SEVERAL MONTHS to heal. If you don't give it the time to do just that, you'll reinjure it much more easily. You really need to take care of it or you'll have real problems later.

BTW...I'm so glad I found your blog! Kayl is adorable! Those blue eyes are lady killers! We are so happy for you & Todd!
