Injury Report #2584

Yes, I’m back after quite a while this time with another injury report.

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that my middle name should be clumsy.

From burns, to trilling up, sitting on chairs awkwardly to hitting my head in strange places… there is always something silly I’m doing!

Well, why would I change things?

Yesterday, at the very beginning of the school day, I was setting up the classroom and managed to step down from somewhere, and land on my foot in a weird way.

I twisted it, and the top, and outer side was very tender.

Spent the whole day icing it, and trying to keep it up where I could, but that’s not easy with 40 new nursery children to settle and comfort!

Plus I was at school until past 7.30 pm Β for my first Governors meeting!

Got home and settled my own two to bed before really looking at it, and giving it a soak..

Oh yes…definitely swollen and sore!

OUCH indeed!

I swallowed some ibuprofen and slept well though the night.Β It’s amazing how good a sedative the exhaustion of teaching is!

It’s still sore today, but I’ll have to manage!

And the kids are in for longer today…EEK!

Wish me well, and have a great Friday Peeps!

Thank God It’s Friday!

    Ouch!! I know exactly how a twisted ankle feels – having twisted or sprained both my ankles too many times to count! RICE is the best cure (rest, ice, compress, elevate) but of course teaching little ones makes that very difficult! Hope it improves soon! πŸ™‚

    Bad fall. Has the swelling gone down? Is it a sprain or did you break something?

    Good grief! Glad you were able to ice it and treat the pain with an over-the-counter painkiller. Wait till you are an elderly women, Ritu (speaking as a 69-year-old guy…). You will have bruises you can’t explain all the time!

    Oh no! It hurts just by looking at your photos. I hope the swelling goes down fast. 40 kiddos are a handful. Good thing the weekend is coming up. Tell your two to behave and let you rest!

    I hope its not a break because walking on it could be treacherous. You really need a nurse at the least to check it out. πŸ˜£πŸ€”

    You can find some lotion against muscle pain, at the Pharmacy with Ibuprofen or more natural Chili Gel or other lotions to help you. I use these myself. Wish you a good day.

    Get well soon.
    Injured my back yesterday slipping and falling while hiking down Koko Head Trail in Oahu, Hawaii. Could have been worse but for the quick reaction of my wife holding to my shirt that prevented my head from hitting the ground and another unknown hiker basically stopping me slipping and rolling down a steep gradient. Badly bruised back, hobbled and reduced mobility.
