THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY
The Good:
My boss called me today and let me know that she's so happy with my work that she has changed my status to a permanent position, cutting my trial period short by 2 months. :)

The Bad:
I slipped on a flight of stairs this afternoon on the way out of a store entrance, and landed so badly that I ended up spending 4 hours in the emergency room this evening and came home with a diagnosis of severely sprained foot and badly bruised heel.

The Ugly:
Crutches and bandages for 2 weeks, and I HAVE to work this week, and we're going to Germany on Friday to visit my brother for 6 days. Guess I won't be doing any hiking up to Neuschwanstein castle. :(

Fuck, my foot hurts.
 sore
mood: sore
music: ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow

Oh Liz!! How horrible for you! I hope the pain goes away and you're able to get through the work week alright. And that you're able to enjoy some of your holiday.

Can you BELIEVE it?! I'm so upset! I didn't get any of the things done that I was on the way to do, no Valentine's presents for my kids...although at least Anders' bottle of whiskey stayed in one piece when I went down. :P

Liz! You poor thing. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Plenty of rest for you I think. (I hope it wasn't Systembolaget that you fell out of.)

Lots of warm hugs from all of us here.

LOL! It was NEXT DOOR, and thank god I had already been there and bought Anders' Valentine's gift. It hurts like hell. I cried buckets. :( ow I've never done anything like this before. I had no idea how much it would hurt.

Oh no! That is not good at all! I hate the thought of you in pain after such a nasty fall. I hope that you will still enjoy your trip to Germany. Castle Neuschwanstein is beautiful, maybe next time ey? xxx

WOW!! I hope your foot is okay! That just sucks! I am sure someone will carry you up to the castle:-) or wheel you up there:-)

Oh shit, you poor thing!! What a bugger with the timing! But congrats about the job, that is really flattering and I'm sure you deserve it!

Can you believe it?! I'm totally bummed out. And in pain. ow.

OUCH!!! oh hun! ******hugs******

you take it really easy on that foot, k? keep it elevated as much as possible early on so that the swelling isn't too bad. that will make a huge difference in the healing time. and take baths with epson salts. it really does help reduce the swelling and pull the toxins from the injured tissue.

and drat it, missing Neuschwanstein castle! i dream someday of going there!

I don't think I have any epson salts...don't even know if they're available here. I had it elevated for 2 hours between when it happened and when we went to the hospital, and it really isn't swollen much. I hope it heals quickly, though.

Thankfully, I've been to Neuschwanstein, although it was 20 years ago, and I was so looking forward to seeing it again. sigh.

Ouch!!
What esmecat said about speeding the healing sounds very smart.
Keep counting those blessings (coulda been worse)
Sending get well soon vibes.

thanks so much, I need all the getwellsoon vibes I can get!

Ow. I'm sorry to hear this Liz. Having bad falls and spraining things is just not fun. Hope you feel better soon.

thanks, Trish :)

Sorry to hear that, I hope your foot heals soon!!

And congratulations on the job!

thank you :)

Man, that smarts. So sorry & hope you feel better soon.

thank you, Sheryl. Such bad luck! and bad timing!!

I hope it heals sooner than you expect. Just keep it elevated (even at work) and keep cool things on it! :) DON'T WALK if you don't have to. In fact, ask people to do things for you.... maybe you will be able to walk a bit round the castle. :)

Oh yeah.... and *HUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUG* I'm sowwy! :(

You said, FUCK. O.o

LOL! I am so immature.

On a serious note: your foot must kill-kill-kill!!!

That sucks-sucks-sucks!!!

I hope that you feel better soon. Real soon, Liz. What a crappy way to celebrate your new permanency at work. :-(

HUGS!!!

Thanks, sweetie. And I'll let you in on a secret: I swear like a sailor. :P

Oh GAWD! Stoppit! Stoppit this instant! You're gonna get yourself killed at this rate and I just can't have that. I just can't. And it's all about me, don'tcha know. Me,me,me, me. And while we're on the taopic and I'm flagrantly displaying how entirely self-absorbed I truly am, I'm pretty sure that i've somehow infected you with my recent strain of bad luck. Which probably explains while I feel so much better these days!

O, Liz. Seriously now. Be Careful!!! and be well. Poor foot. I air kiss in your general direction! I was going to offer up real smooches on the painful parts, but I dunno... I'm sure your feet are scrupiously clean and well-manicured and undoutedly as adorable as feet get , but the whole foot kissing thing just ain't my bag. You understand. xo Wee

LOL! Well, if laughter is the best medicine, I should be feeling tip-top in no time. :D

No more falling down!!! I did it, my friends are doing it! You can take the carriage ride up and down Neuschwanstein Castle though! Get well soon

It sucks, it does. The carriage ride doesn't go up to the top, if I remember correctly, plus there is no way I can hop around the entire castle on crutches. :( waaah!

Happy Valentine's Day! And tell your foot I said to feel much better!

I will! thank you :)

Ow! That bites. I'm sorry. :(

It doesn't bite, it SUCK! :D
