I’m sure there’s a funny title for this post somewhere…

I had every intention of coming back today and posting pictures of Abigael’s first day… Instead, they will have to wait until later. I have just hobbled over to the computer to very quickly fill you in on my afternoon.

I left with Quinn and Seamus to pick up Abbie from school. I was carrying Seamus and as soon as I stepped in the grass, I stepped in a hole (disguised with a patch of grass) and totally and completely fell over (is it possible to fall over more than “totally and completely”? If so, that was me). On my way down, I heard a pop of some sort. Seamus was unhurt and so is the baby in my womb – thank you Lord!

But my ankle is another story.

My afternoon and evening have been spent on the couch with my right leg iced and propped higher than my heart. Sean has looked at it and spoken with a doctor friend of his; at the least, it is a sprain. At worst, I have a bone that is fractured or broken.

At 36 weeks pregnant!!!

Tomorrow we are going to get it checked out. Sean is staying home to get the kids taken care of and Abbie off to school.

I will come back after the appointment and let y’all know what we found out.

I had a post about an awesome thing that happened over the weekend that I know was a result of all of your prayers for me. I’ll post that Wednesday.

Until then – please pray that my ankle heals quickly. And let me know if you can think of a good title for this post.

    Oh man! It’s always scary falling when you’re pregnant. I’m glad everyone is alright!

  2. Oh my word Karla. I’m so sorry about your ankle. But I’m very glad the babe and Seamus are alright. That is so scary. Praying that ankle heals quickly.

  3. Oh, I’ll be praying for you. This makes my toe seem very minor. I’m praying it’s just a sprain and you’ll make a speedy recovery!

  4. Barbara H. says:

    Ouch! I sure hope it’s not fractured. Glad the little ones are ok.

  5. Megan (FriedOkra) says:

    OH DEAR. I am so sorry to hear this news, but glad the little ones are okay. Heal, heal, heal! :)

  6. stephanie@{Olive Tree} says:

    Yikes! Glad you are okay (minus the whole ankle thing)!

  7. Especially Heather says:

    Aww! I hope it feels better!

  8. Oh, you poor poor girl! :( I hurt my ankle this spring and it was AWFUL! I hope your heals quickly.
    Does it make you feel any better to know that a lot of heavily pregnant women break their ankles? No? Get some rest and feel BETTER.

  9. I guess it runs in the family. I sprained both sides of my left ankle and the outside of my knee last monday

    Oh no! So sorry to hear about that. Whatever’s wrong with it, I hope it heals quickly…

  11. AWWWWW
    i wish you lived closer…
    i’d bring you a meal!!!! or look after your babies……


  12. Barb @ A Chelsea Morning says:

    Oh, I cringe at the image of you falling like that, Karla. Thank goodness it’s only your ankle although that has to be completely awful in itself.

    And I can’t think of a good title for this post, not one you could publish. LOL

    I hope it’s only a sprain and you bounce (carefully) right back.
