I cannot be trusted to do stairs...

There are three stairs leading to my garage from my house.  Doesn't sound like a lot...they aren't even steep or menacing in any way. But apparently I can not be trusted to do them while talking on a cell phone.
Two sprained ankles and a partial torn LCL later...and I'm hobbling around.  I don't do 'don't put any weight on it' well.  THis happened a week ago and it was too painful/swollen that day for them to tell if I had torn/ruptured anything else in my knee. So I go this Tuesday for another exam with the ortho to see if I need further procedures on my knee.  It is MUCH less painful now..though if I push it..I pay for it.  My right ankle..who has to take my entire weight even though sprained..is revolting and has become a 'zombie foot' and threatens to collapse most days.
Cali gives me lots of sympathy and I know she understands.
 We did manage to hit a winery yesterday.  Luckily, I have awesome friends who helped me and catered to me to keep me off my feet as much as possible.  I'm still paying for it today..but that is OK.  I took Roxi and Cody.  We had 10 dogs hanging under a tree while drinking wine.  Wish it had been a smidge cooler..but that is OK. 

 The greyhounds are easy to 'wear out'.  But Roxi on the other hand has a bit more energy. So seeing this (forgive the poor quality as it was in a moving vehicle) made my day on the way home.  Seven hours of 'eventing' and 'winery lounging' did her in!
Fingers crossed for 'just rehab and time' diagnosis on Tuesday.  I'm fairly confident of this.

A very bad fall! You look like to need to borrow a wheel chair for a couple of weeks! All the greyhounds and cat at our home wish yu a lot more rest and we wish you a quick recovery!

Oh no! I hope you are feeling better soon. Rest, rest, rest.

OUCH! Sending you positive healing thoughts. Hope Tuesday they say no op is needed.

Glad you got a nice time at the winery and the pups all had a ball.

Love the photo of Roxi.

It's a good thing Cali is there to sympathize, as she truly understands. Hopefully it will heal with no more issues.

Ouch! I hope you get good news from the ortho guy! I sense a lot of taking it easy in your future...

Yikes!!! That sounds like it was incredibly painful. My mom sprained her ankle a month or so back in the same fashion. Did you cry when your rolled or your ankle or fell?

You sound just like a greyhound--you don't do steps well! I hope you're feeling better soon!
