My Real Injury

I've been playing soccer for a fairly long time now, about 6 years with the same club. And wrestling has help me become a pretty tough person. So sadly, I publicly find it annoying when players go down on the field, can't get back up and need to be taken off the field. I mean just get back up and ask for a sub, right?! Well then I majorily jinxed myself.

I was running across the field (assumingly trying to get that ball...) and I just rolled my ankle so hard. I went down right away. I have never cried so much from getting hurt ever in my life. After many stitches a few other sport related injuries, none had ever hurt this much.

I was literally carried off the field and one of my coaches waited for a few minutes before taking all my gear off. Once it was all off, we all saw my ankle. It was the size of a tennis ball. It was the most digusting thing I had seen that I had to cover my own eyes while my coach taped it. We headed to the hospital right after the game, it seemed to go by pretty fast but I was hopped up on adrenaline with my very first real injury!

I got X-rays pretty fast and didn't have to wait too long to go back and talk to a doctor. It was a 3 out of 4 level sprain. I was given an aircast AND crutches. What scared me the most is if I go back to soccer or running too soon I will need surgery. So I'm off for about 2-3 weeks and had the last 2 days of work off. Craziness!

I'm already sick of being stuck and sitting around the house. It takes forever to move around. Thanks to Daddy for being with me at the hospital yet again! And getting me food while I was stranded at home, yummmm.
