Los Angeles - Part 4

Sunday: The Bad and the Ugly

Not all of my trip was fun.

As Dom stopped the car in front of the garage, I opened the backseat door to get out. I stepped sideways to avoid a puddle. Dom did not realize I was getting out and pulled the car ahead, trapping my foot between the tire and the pavement, at which point I screamed, “STOP! BACK UP!! BACK UP!!!” Because, PAIN.

Meanwhile Kalvin, who was in the house already, thought it sounded like the neighbor’s dog was injured.

He did not run clear over my foot, and it is not broken, but it has some serious bruises all around the ankle. These did not show up until Tuesday morning, so Kalvin thought I’d really dodged a bullet. Actually, I did. It’s funny how when you tell someone about an accident, they know someone that it happened to, on vacation, who fared much worse than I.

A large area on the outside of my ankle went numb shortly after the accident. I will be watching to see if the nerve will come back normally, or if I’ll need further treatment. Right now, I’m just staying off it as much as possible and icing it down. Of course, this was after I got back from vacation. ;-)

Learn from my mistake: announce when you’re getting out of the back of a car!

It could have been much worse, but it sure hurt at the moment!

Ouch! I hope you will recover soon and regain feeling back.

The question then will be "how will the feeling come back?" There is potential for neuropathy with an injury like this, and when it wakes up, it could be very painful. I'm hoping my luck holds out and there won't be a problem.

On the bright side, it's given me an excuse to spend most of this weekend sewing, since I can sit down. ;-)

Well shit. That's nasty. Just from painful personal experience be careful with that. Aside from the potential for lasting joint and nerve damage keep an eye open for blood clots. Trust me, you don't want a DVT.

No, indeed. That would not be fun.
