Thanks Terri, I really need that hug now.

Hey, nice day Saturday, great idea, invite neigbbor for a walk...wasn't slippery like in the am cuz it melted... but I must have gone over on the side of my shoe or something, cuz next thing I knew I was done on all fours, luckily caught myself on my hands....Bear, is a sprained ankle contagious?

So, after a minute my friend helped me up, I was dizzy and stomach felt fuzzy, I hobbled about 10 feet to a pole and leaned against it. Next thing, I was down on all fours again, and don't know how I got there.. Took a couple minutes and I got read as a beet, but was finally able to stand and walked slowly home. Called later and my friend didn't really know how I got down the second time either, she said it was like in slo mo, and I kind of slithered down to the ground... Scarey....Sure glad I wasn't alone. Poor Buddy is nervous, she walked him home for me, luckily I had on a waist belt, so when I fell, he didn't escape... Makes you stop and think how easy it is to get hurt, and maybe double think walking alone away from houses etc.

My ankle is swollen, opposite to the one where the leg has been swollen for about 2 weeks, it kind of resolved today with all the walking, good thing, eh? Ouch!!!!

Oops, must go track that 40 min walk.... (Do you get extra points for being in pain?) and though I didn't cook supper, I had a meat I shouldn't have had, but a bag of veggies and yogurt kept me pretty much on track...

    Prayers that you are soon feeling better. Try to stay off your ankle as much as you can for a couple of days anyway.

    Things are terrific today as well. Beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 60s!!! WOOHOO!!! Tomorrow I will be getting blood work done for my doctor's appointment on Friday. Richelle, Liam and I went to the beauty shop and Richelle and I both got our hair trimmed. Then I took her to see her chiropractor and he adjusted her mid back and neck area. Stopped her migraine almost immediately. AWESOME and so very thankful!!!

    Tomorrow I will also be going to my Aunt Jo's visitation services. She fell down the stairs at her son's house and was on life support. When her kids decided she wouldn't want to live like that and the doctors insisted she was brain dead, they disconnected the life support and she immediately went home to God and my Uncle Ray (her DH who passed away a few months ago. Her funeral will be on Wednesday. I may be late checking in. Please keep her children and grandchildren in your prayers.

    Keeping our team in prayers for all spoken and unspoken needs. God knows them all! (((HUGS)))

    I hope your ankle is better soon. I did something like that when we were away from home and found that I had a torn ligament from it. :( Use ice and keep it propped when you can. Feel better soon! HUGS!

    I sure hope sprains are not contagious! Poor you! Maybe it was just a good wrench and will be right as rain tomorrow morning, just stay off it as much as you can for a couple days
