An Ankle Sprain? How Insane!

Late last night while getting up from the couch – I tried to stand up but my foot had fallen asleep. I mean it went completely numb. We heard a loud pop and my foot went in a direction that’s not normal. It swelled up like a softball and is now about the size of a golf ball.

I thought it might get better with a little rest but sure enough – it’s sprained. I cannot put any weight on it right now and we’ve got a lot to do in the next two weeks. I can’t imagine wearing a baby on my back and using crutches at the airport. But like I’ve always said – there’s never a dull moment in our family!

If it didn’t hurt so much I would laugh at the fact that this happened a week before we fly into Haiti. Seriously satan? Is this the game you’re going to play?

Well then – – – GAME ON!

  1. poor Jody!! I feel you pain girl!! – I was so devastated when I broke my ankle two days before coming to meet you at the mission in Haiti…I can’t imagine how frustrated you are. With that swelling and the pop, make sure its not broken. I know you know what to do but I will play your doctor for this! I will pray for quick healing and perseverance. God is obviously allowing you to slow down in order to teach you yet another precious thing about Him. Satan doesn’t have a chance…holding you up gal!
