I Fell Head Over Heels for BW… and Probably Broke My Ankle

This post is appropriate since I am writing it the day before Valentines Day and I truly did fall head over heals in the Rec parking lot. I was walking back to Lang from my job at the admissions office today when I slipped on a patch of ice and fell. I heard a strange crunching noise and felt my ankle bend inward. I automatically knew that something was wrong when I felt a searing pain in my ankle when I tried to stand up. The worst part was having everyone ask me what happened. I HATE drawing attention to myself and everyone was looking at me.


I had to be carried to the Rec center where a trainer looked at me and told me that I had to get an x-ray taken at the hospital. I called my friend Julie and asked her if she could drive me to the hospital. I was wheeled into the hospital with a wheel chair and taken to a room where I got x-rayed. The doctor told me that I had a break and need to make an appointment with another doctor with a cast. So, here I am writing about my broken ankle. I hope I can get a cool colored cast.
