Well I have broken my ankle...

I am determined not to let it ruin my summer but it's very frustrating.  I wanted to go the golf course with TJ last week b/c the weather was beautiful and it wasn't so humid.  Of course I don't play so I was wearing flip flops.  I walked off the tee-box and the wet grass caused my flip flops to just come right out from under me.  TJ and I heard the loudest sound ever and I knew it was broke.  They got me a cart and off to the Emergency Room we went.  They took x-rays and yes it was broke in 3 places! 
That was the worst night b/c all they could do was give me some pain meds and schedule me an appt with the orthopedic the next day.  TJ and I didn't sleep one wink that night and couldn't wait to get to the doctor the next morning. 
I got to the doctors office and after his first glance of the x-ray he immediatly scheduled the surgery for that afternoon.  I had never been put to sleep before or had any kind of surgery so I was so nervous.  After he told me about the surgery I cried for the first time! 
After the surgery I slept like a baby that night.  My leg was still completly numb and it was great!  The next day it started hurting again b/c I could feel the screws and plate that was put into my leg along with the cut and stiches.  Not the way I wanted to spend Memorial Day weekend for sure. 

Don't know what I would have done without these special people...oh and Ally up above.  She stayed right by my side the whole time!!!

Every day the pain is less and less.  I am tired of elevating and using crutches already though.  I go back to the doctor on Wednesday of this week and will get the details of my recovery plan. 
Oh and did I mention that TJ and I are supposed to be headed to Disney World and Universal Studios in 3 weeks...please pray that I'll have a walking cast by then.  I would be so upset if we had to cancel our plans. 

I have enjoyed catching up on all the news, shows, and blogs that I have missed latley.  I know God has a plan and I am trying to see the positive that will come from this...still a bit unsure of it at this point!  ha!
