Go ahead and call me Grace! Earlier this week I was upstairs looking for something and I was on my way downstairs to get in the car. Thankfully, I was by myself and Dustin had taken the kids out to the car while I looked. On my way downstairs, I slipped with 5 stairs left and tumbled down. Yikes! So graceful! I got a huge cut and bruise on my shin, but the worst part was severe pain in my foot. I could hardly stand or walk. This was Tuesday evening and we were on our way to Petsmart to get some more fish for our tank. The boys were so excited to go, I hated to make them miss it so I did my best to go since it would be fast. I walked in to the store, in a ton of pain, and there was a banner hanging with a puppy that looked almost identical to Marley. I had to look away and Bry walks up behind me and points and very excitedly says "Marley, Marley, look mommy it is Marley". It was all I could do not to burst out in tears standing in the middle of the store. Man, I miss her. I still struggle with the what-ifs, but that is besides the point.
By Wednesday, I was in such severe pain, that I was turning my foot in to walk. I was afraid I had broken it so I drug all 4 boys by myself to the ER for x-rays. 3 hours later we learned it was not broken, but a severe sprain. Thank heavens! They wrapped my foot and gave me a beautiful shoe to wear for 7 to 10 days and said I will be good as new. My foot is already so much better, and no longer hurts while I am just sitting here. It is still sore when I move it or put weight on it, but it is no longer painful.
I will be here
