The day before we were planning to leave for our vacation in the Grand Canyon and points west, I slipped off the front step.
My left foot slid sideways off the step and I spun around and wound up laid out on the ground.
My right ankle took the brunt of the fall and swelled up immediately.
I was hoping it was sprained but when the pain was still excruciating the next morning Charlie took me to our local urgent care facility called “Ouch”.
After an examination and x-ray it was determined that my right fibula was fractured and my left ankle sprained.
They gave me a walking boot, a CD of the x-ray for my orthopaedist, a pain med prescription, and best wishes for a nice trip.
I munched on dried mango to comfort myself.
Do you think this will put a cramp in my mule ride?
