Medical Day

We started the day planning to go to the Coquina Beach on Anna Maria Island.  We will be holding a mission activity there in June.  We wanted to see what facilities are available.

However, we stopped to mail two letters.  Renee said she would get out of the car to do it.  As she was walking back to the car, she stumbled and smashed her foot against the car door.

It hurt, but she was able to hobble around the beach.  However, when we stopped at the mall food court for a late lunch/early dinner, the pain was increasing.  By the time we drove back to our apartment, it hurt so much that she didn't want to get out of the car.  So we just drove to a nearby urgent care center.  They asked her on a scale of 1 to 10 to assess how bad the pain was.  She said it was a 9.

As we waited for the doctor, the pain increased.  They took x-rays, but the doctor couldn't see any broken bones.  He thought it was just a deep bruise.  He told her to take Aleve and gave her a cane to use.  We immediately drove to Target to buy some Aleve when we left the urgent care office.

We struggled to get her up to our second floor apartment, but we were successful.  I suspect it is not going to be a comfortable night for her.
