3 years ago my parents went on Trek. Trek is a pioneer camp my church does. On the last day they were there my mom stepped in a gopher hole and broke her ankle. It completely snapped. I'm not going to give you details but she ended up having surgery on it about a year later, that whole year she was either off her foot or in a boot, it was super hard...well she had surgery and then was off her foot again for 6 weeks and was in the boot for several months. We were so excited the day she took off her boot! It was amazing!!! 3 days later she stepped on a sewing needle on the floor and it broke off in her other foot (not the foot with the surgery) The needle completely disappeared in her foot and she had to have major surgery to get it out it was so deep in her foot. Because of the surgery she was off her foot again for 6 weeks...To this day she has has had daily pain from both her feet because of these surgery's, just a few months ago she started physical therapy to try and get both of the healed and back to normal.
Well there is the background you needed. Now here's what happened yesterday...Yesterday my mom was walking outside and she somehow tripped and fell. It was terrible, she couldn't move and she just kept sobbing "No, not again. No, no, no. Not again." She knew something was seriously wrong with her ankle (the one that got the needle stuck). Luckily we had a friend over who's dad is a foot doctor so he called his dad and he came over and looked at it. He told my dad that she needed to go to the doctor and get it x-rayed, so they slowly got my mom out to the car and they got her to the doctors. The walk-in-clinic was of course as stupid as ever and did not do a good job but oh well. All we know right now is that her ankle has a 4th degree sprain, which is the worst you can get without it breaking. We are so grateful its not broken but its still terrible. Now I will tell you the super freaky part. As you know yesterday was July 10th 2010. It was July 10th 2007 that she broke her other ankle. Which means that she broke her ankle on the 3 year anniversary of breaking the other one...isn't that just plain freaky?!? Well theres the dramatics of my day for ya:(
Quote of the Day
This is my theme scripture from EFY and Youth Conference that I just got home from...this scripture is so perfect for what I'm going through I am amazed. I don't know how I would have handled this if I hadn't been focusing on this the past few weeks.
"Be strong and of a good courage. be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed. For the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest." -Joshua 1:9
