Had a fairly “un-fun” afternoon. Getting ready to go to work, I took a wrong step down the stairs. My efforts were rewarded with a very loud crunching-pop noise coming from my ankle along with excruciating pain.

To which my Beloved responds by starting to bawl (I love you very much Noel!! Though now she informs me that she finished knitting the row she was on before coming to see what was the matter). We sat around for half-an-hour trying to decide whether or not to go to the ER.

Finally decided that the “pop” worried me enough I wanted a doctor to look at. Good news though, no broken bones; just a severe sprain. I’ll bet the doctor’s bill is going to hurt worse than the sprain, but it’s good to know that it’s not broken.
