I'm Lame, Shoot me!

Last October we were at Emerson's sock-hop for school and they made the parents get up to teach the kids the Electric Slide. While Matt and I were attempting this, some boys were racing back and forth. I tried to get out of their way and I rolled over my ankle. It was pretty sore for about a week and then it went away for a little while and then it would swell and then go away etc. Well, after I bowled 6 games on Saturday, it swelled pretty good and then it didn't go away. My friend Karen is an RN so she told me I had to go to the doctor because this was going on 5 months and something might really be wrong. I called my doctor on Monday and they made me go to the hospital to get an x-ray. On Tuesday the nurse called me and told me it wasn't broken. I knew this because even though it was pretty sore, I could still walk. She suggested that I go to the Orthopaedic doctor. I went yesterday and they said it was fine, that I did some damage in October but it was healing on it's own and I aggravated it with the bowling. They gave me some anti-inflamatories, put a sock on my foot and sent me on my way. At least I don't need surgery, that was my biggest fear.
