Allen : April 28th- uh oh!
Diary entry posted Sat 7:51pm 19 May 2001

The day of the misfortune. I can't believe that I have a broken bone from this. I was running up a hill at a weird angle and suddenly, my ankle gives out and I tumble. I heard a cracking noise, but thought "oh, that was just my ankle joint popping." yeah...right. Anyway, I broke my wrist before, so I kind of actually thought I broke a bone. That's a sound you don't forget. The strange thing is that my ankle didn't swell that much, it didn't hurt too much, and I could still walk- albeit painfully. So, off to the hospital. After a long wait I am told that I have a broken fibula. They put me in one of those brace things that they wrap with bandages. It was a saturday, so they told me to go to a specialist the next week. So I wait until Monday to make an appointment. The thing the hospital put on my leg was terrible, depending on how I moved, I could feel the bone shifting in my leg- pretty gross. Well, I call and make an appointment with the orthopedic specialists (I am seeing two of them who have a joint practice) for Tuesday and make plans for a friend to drive me there. At this point I am not too worried about my injury......
