Sunday afternoon, at about 1:30 CDT, I broke my right ankle. (I was walking across a grassy slope--or possibly knoll--and my right foot slid out from under me sharply to the left.)
The rest of Sunday was eaten by the ER.
I broke both ankle bones, so surgery is required to stabilize the joint by means of a plate and three, or possibly four, screws.
Today was the pre-op consult with the Orthopedic Surgery Department, and tomorrow, if all goes well, will be the surgery. At the moment I'm stoned on Tylenol 3 and have my foot strapped into something that looks like what would happen if Monty Python's Spanish Inquisition got together with the Teletubbies and went a little nuts. But it's keeping my leg elevated and immobile, so go team us.
(Also, thank god for my husband's health insurance.)
Regular service will resume eventually, but don't expect it any time soon.
ETA: Forgot this bit: After surgery, I'm looking at six weeks in a cast, then a month in one of those walking cast boot things, then an ankle brace and PT.
