Apartment Life #296

This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that have gone on in and around my apartment complex and in my neighborhood in the past 25 years that I've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 25 years here in a weekly blog post. 

This week was a little different. I hurt my foot really bad on Monday morning and thought it was broken. I could barely walk on it. So I called an ambulance. I didn't even have a chance to do my makeup. lol 

My daughter started snapping pictures. lol 
They took me to the ER and after some X-rays I was told it's just a bad sprain. I didn't even twist my ankle or anything. I was just walking when it happened. I felt something snap in my foot.

I got crutches and an air cast. The air cast sure makes it easier to walk and so do the crutches. 

By the 4th day the air cast was really starting to get on my nerves but it does help. lol It keeps your foot from moving which really helps with the pain. Those blue plastic pieces on either side are filled with air and fit right up on your ankle. Velcro straps keep it all in place. The ER doctor prescribed me 600 mg Ibuprofen to take for the pain. I can't take opioid pain meds because they make me really sick so this is fine with me. 

It's going to be a painful few weeks before this heals. 

The high this week was 70F/21C
The low this week was 38F/3C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
