New Shoe

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, you really should be in the attic!!

A little over two weeks ago, I was attempting to leave my house through the garage.  When I stepped out (in the pitch dark, of course) I tripped over the Christmas Tree!  Yes, it is still in the garage because I'm scared of heights and haven't had anyone to put it in the attic for me, yet.  So as I trip - I fall on my right foot.  When I landed I heard two pops.  I was able to walk but not good.  However, I didn't think much of it.  After all, I knew it wasn't broken.  
Well, this past weekend, we were leaving church and my ankle gave way as I stepped off the sidewalk and would have fallen again but Terry was there to catch me.  This time, I knew something was wrong with my foot.  Long story short, I went to the doctor yesterday and had x rays.  I fractured and tore the tendon from the bone two weeks ago and the fracture healed back.  This past weekend, I re-fractured it and found out that it will take about 3 months for my tendon to attach itself back to the bone and that my ankle twisted and very weak from both falls.  

After telling the doctor how I was not going to be on crutches or use a cane... I have a brace and a boot to wear for two weeks.

And since the only shoes I own are high heels, boots, tennis shoes and everyday flip flops... I went and bought a pair of cute, "bedazzled" yellow box shoes to wear with my new shoe.


  1. Bless you girl!! At least you went to the doctor before it got any worse. I am sorry. Next time Terry is there, please let me know and I will help him put your Christmas in the attic. Love ya girl!!

  2. Thanks Ashley. Hopefully it will be out of the attic soon!! It's out of my way now... the lights probably don't even work after the kicking I did to it!

  3. oh no you poor thing.....hope you're not in too much pain....((HUGS)) OUCH!

  4. Oh, I am so sorry! You make that boot look so sassy next to your cute yellow boxes!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
