A little bit of unfortunateness.

Well.. I have a bit of icky news. I went out on Saturday night to a local bar for Indie Pop Night and to celebrate a good friend's going away party, and somehow ended up in the very wrong place at the wrong time!

It ended up that I was accidently in the middle of a big brawl, yikes! I happened to be walking back to where I was dancing after going to the washroom and I guess there was a girl dancing who got her hair pulled, turned around to punch whoever did it, and I happened to be the first person she saw. Not sure who pulled her hair (it was NOT me!), but it ended up that I fell down and hurt my ankle really bad. Then all of a sudden everyone on that corner of the room was fighting. I couldn't move or get out of the crowd on top of me, and couldn't get my husband's attention and there weren't any bouncers to be found. Thank god for good friends and tough sister in laws. I don't go out much, so I'm really sad that this is how my evening ended... and more sad that now I can't walk!

I went to the ER yesterday after toughing it out at home for a day and a half thinking I had a bad sprain, and they gave me an X-Ray. My ankle is broken in two places - at first they thought I would have to have surgery, but it ended up not being necessary (thank god!). I got a temporary cast because my foot was so swollen they wouldn't fit me with a permanent one, so this afternoon I have to go back and get another put on. I'm hoping they can give me a pink one :)

Anyways, I'm just writing this because I want you all to know that I can't walk so I can't accomplish much in the next little while.. and maybe you could all give me some good vibes that it heals quickly? I am so busy all the time and I'm more frustrated than anything that I can't move around! I hate sitting on my butt all day, but I guess I should take a break when it is offered to me... lol. The thing that makes me the most sad is that I can't take care of Jude and am going to have to get child care for him during the day. He changes so much from day to day and week to week that I am really upset about possibly having to miss a lot of his little moments.

Anyways to close this off, here at least is a fun video of us dancing to one of my favorite Death from Above songs before all the mess!

Holly said...

Oh my gosh! That's awful! I hope it heals quickly!

Mommy2Liam said...

Oh no! You poor thing, I am sending you so many good vibes!

This is why I never go out anymore, bad things always happen around me, even if I don't cause them. I prefer to hang out at a friend's house (even though that's not a guaruntee) or at my own! It sucks that the one night you get out, all this crap happens to you.

Wishing your ankle a speedy recovery!

Aw man! Well, I'm keeping you in all of my good thoughts and sending speedy healing energies your way. I hope your little one can get along for this short time with minimal inconvenience.

I sure wish I could've seen the vid-I love that song! :)

Kitty said...

Blimey Chelsea, that's awful. I'm so sorry to hear you had such a bad time on what was supposed to be a nice evening out. :-( Sending lots of ankle-healing vibes your way. Look after yourself. x

Steph said...

You poor thing! That's awful! Why would someone want to punch someone else JUST for having their hair pulled? Anyway, I hope your on the mend now and it's not too sore for you. xx

HeartfeltHandmade said...

how horrid, so not fair, wishing you a very speedy recovery! xoxo

ittybittybirdy said...

Good grief! Well don't drink soda... there are a few others too that I can't recall... you should look them up. But I know soda was on the list to prolonging the healing process. My brother has broken more bones than I can count ~ keep your chin up Chelsea and try not to get frustrated~
