You RUPTURED Your What?

I think I mentioned, in a previous post, that I had fallen in my yard 10 days ago? Well, today I was making up my bed, getting ready to cook our Thanksgiving meal and I felt a sharp pop in my leg. It felt like a really bad Charlie horse. I sat down and the pain eased up some, when I tried to walk I let out a scream that scared poor Dallas half to death. He and Niko came running into my room . Dallas helped me make it to the couch and I called Dale. Amanda came home early today so she took me to the ER. I had an ultra sound to make sure it wasn't a blood clot, but as soon as the doctor examined me he told me what it was. Now, I am off my leg for who know how long? He put a splint and ace wrap on my leg and gave me tylox and 800mg motrin for pain. I have an appointment Monday with an orthopedic surgeon .

My lovely leggings..........



When I read up on a ruptured achilles tendon, mine is called a partial or incomplete rupture, it says they may cast it and then I will have to wear the cast for 6-10 weeks while the tendon reattaches . If they have to do surgery it may not be as long just 6-8 weeks. I'm glad I have Aflac. I don't know how I am going to finish my Christmas shopping though.

Amanda and Tyler are going to cook Thanksgiving dinner for me tomorrow.

I was so happy to get all my ADRs. I think the ladies meeting for a "pre dinner beverage" is a wonderful idea .

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thank you Mary. I knew something wasn't right when it happened because my leg felt funny, now it just hurts like Hades. I hope I don't have to have surgery either. You know they say nurses and doctors make the worst patients? Well, it is because we KNOW too much . I think Amand and Tyler will do pretty good cooking.

Great ADR's Dana! So excited to see you at Ohana. Sorry to hear about your achiles though. That sounds pretty painful. I hope you are on the mend soon. Take care of yourself and keep us updated!

Dana, I'm so sorry about your leg. Of course timing sucks.

I wanted to wish you and your precious family a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a wonderful weekend inspite of those nasty crutches.

In 1985 I fell and broke my leg in two places and the ankle. After screws and plates and 8 months on crutches and no weight bearing I got promoted to a cane. Exactly one year later I got rid of the cane. That was one long year. I was lucky as it was my left leg so I could drive. Showers sucked and we had a waterbed. I was 35 at the time. Now 3 years ago when Sheri was 35 she fell in her drive and broke her leg and now has a titanium rod from knee to ankle. We are two peas in a pod for sure.

Now back to you. I hope it is not a long recovery cause that is no way to have to spend the best time of the year and miss out on Christmas shopping. I guess that is why they have the internet.

Best wishes to you and have a lovely Thanksgiving.

Ginny

I'm glad I got all my ADRs too. Maybe they can seat us near ya'll. That would be fun . I like Mary's idea of us ladies meeting up for a pre dinner beverage. I seem like going to the ER around this time of year....... I will keep everyone posted. I wish I could have gotten in to see the doctor tomorrow instead of having to wait until Monday.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thank you Ginny. You are right timing does suck. I wanted to get some of my Christmas shopping done this weekend, but that won't happen.

OUCH, you did your leg up right didn't you? Man, I can only imagine how much that hurt. When I worked orthopedics I felt so sorry for everyone who had to have casts on their legs, now I may be one of them. You and Sheri are two peas in a pod. When things like that happen it is really creepy. Makes you wonder sometimes.

I'm hoping the recovery is fast too. I took the splint off about 15 minutes ago and the pain wasn't there, but it is starting to come back . These pain pills (tylox) make me sooooo nauseated . I guess I will be doing more of my shopping on line than I had first thought. I didn't want to have to use my credit card too much, but it doesn't look like I can escape it.......

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and your wonderful family too. I miss having the big family get togethers.

Thanks Becky . I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Mine turned out pretty good despite my misfortune . I have ordered a few things online, but there is something about being in the mall during the Christmas shopping time. We usually go to the mall in Pensacola and the one in Ft. Walton. I guess I could borrow my Mom's wheelchair . I guess we won't do anything this weekend since I go to the orthopedic surgeon on Monday, and walking on these crutches is hard enough around the house .

Hi- I just wanted to say that I have read all of the posts on here just now and I can't wait top read more! (Well, except for the roll tide stuff- I'm with Connie on this one
I am subbing and just wanted to introduce myself!

I'm Brandi, from North LA, but now live close to Baton Rouge- a suburb. I am a Kindergarten teacher and mom of two boys- 7 year old Alex and 1 year old Nathan. We haven't been to DW since 2007 and before Nathan was born. But, we are DVCers, so we typically went every year and will continue that tradition now. Our next trip is May 22-29th, so we'll be there the same time. I am already planning away and can't wait to plan along with the DIS folks.
Anyway, hope everyone had a great Turkey Day! I'm ready for lots of college football tomorrow. And I hate to say it, but I really want 'Bama to lose as I can't stand Saban- but I hold nothing against anyone! I'll have to tell y'all later about the LSU/Alabama game day in our neighborhood- we have neighbors from Alabama who we played some tricks on and it was great fun!
OK, so g'night and I'll keep checking in for your report!

Glad to hear the pain was starting to subside...you need to call a doctor friend and find something besides tylox/Danny could not take it either.

If I remember correctly all of the cases I seen come into the office was a 6-8 wk recovery period...surgery 4- 6 wks...most people were happy with the surgery repair as the pain was gone almost instantly. I do not ever remember seeing anyone in cast for this injury just aircast and splints...you'll be hitting the malls soon...you'll be an expert with those crutches before the end of the weekend...

have a good day and weekend Dana!!!
Connie

Hey Connie! Yeah, I could tell that you must be somewhere in South Louisiana! I just started blogging on blogspot to help my planning addiction, so I hope that will help cure my craziness this far out!

Hi Brandi . Nice to meet you, thanks for coming over.

I can totally understand how ya'll feel about Saban. We have suffered some really bad experiences with coaches too. The likes of Franchione, Mike Price (boy that one was a doozie ) Dubose, Curry(who was 0-3 against Auburn ) and several more........ There will never be another Bear, but Stallings came close.
I know LSU has had a few doozies too, like Curley Hallman .

I want to buy into the DVC, but the time just hasn't been right yet . There will be several of us there in May so we need to get together for a meet somewhere. I met Leanne and Mary last year at a Dis meet and they will be there at the same time as will Lisa. I wish we could slip Connie and her family in our suitcases .

If Alabama loses today I will have to leave home . My DH can not stand the Tiger-Eagles.............. I can't wait to hear about the tricks ya'll played on your Alabama friends .

Connie
I will be so glad when Monday gets here so I can be done with the worrying. I have a hard time with any pain meds Connie, I just have a low tolerance.

I hope Dr. Daugherty gives me good news Monday. I don't want to miss too much work and if I have a cast on I won't be able to work. As long as I wear this splint I can't tell if it is better or not. The ER doc said they usually splint the foot at a 90 degree angle, but he didn't want to push mine that far. I don't want to have surgery, but if he thinks it is best then that is what I will do . I'm scared to try and take a step with out the splint, I'm sacred it will hurt too bad. So I hope he can give me something so I can walk. These crutches are killing me .
