Humpty Dumpty has a Great Fall!

It has been a pretty wild work week. Several late night including tonight. Yesterday, I decided to take the afternoon off and head to Zumba since I had to miss all of my night classes this week. It was a mad rush to get there on time, but when I got there a few minutes late, they had waited on my to start the class. I was super excited to be getting my Zumba on...and then during the third song of the class it happened. I got a little too fast going from jumping jacks to side lunges, and rolled my ankle over and feel. Super embarrassed, and OUCH! I got up and walked a bit and decided to try to finish the class with LOTS of modifications.
When I got home and took off my shoe I had a lump, swelling, and bruising. It was too late to hit any of the express meds, and I didn't want to go to the ER knowing all they would really do is X-Ray it, telling me to take advil, and send me to the Bone and Joint the next day if needed. So I started icing. 20 mins on 20 mins off. A girl friend told me when she played sports in college that they would actually ice in a bucket of ice, so I did it that way.

This morning the swelling had almost completely gone away. I still have a lump and bruise, but I think it will be fine. Guess I will be on that bike for a couple of weeks so that the foot can completely heal.
