Hi, because I wasn't able to find anything to help me understand what to expect, I wanted to start a blog to record my progress to help those of you who are experiencing the same thing and curious about what to expect next. I really hope this helps!
I had my usual Monday night Co-ed Softball game to play and it was the first time we changed around positions! I was so excited! I played first base and got an out! We got the inning over fast. When it came to my turn to hit, I made a great hit over the middle of 2nd base and got on base safely! Next hit gets in and I'm running to second....I see the ball coming to my head so I decided to go in for a slide. The guy runs in to tag me out, runs over my foot, and steps on my ankle! I felt this crazy snap and saw stars... Next that came was a nasty horrible constant pain. I was down on my hands and knees and couldn't move. It was excruciating pain! Shortly after being carried back to the bench, I started to lose my hearing and sight. I guess I was going into shock. Funny thing is it felt very similar to when I last injured my ankle from Rock Climbing class back in college with a fractured heel and torn ligaments on the same ankle!

Surprisingly, the pain was barable and wasn't too bad as long as it was elevated and not moving.
To be continued.... with the day I see my surgeon. I need a break from typing!
