Remember the story of me passing out in the heat? Well it's a new month and time for another mishap. President Tye and I drove to the GMA Chapel in the San Gabriel Zone to pick up a Sister and her Companion, one of them needed to go to the Emergency Room. It was a beautiful Sunday morning so we decided to wait on the emergency and stay for the Sacrament before starting the drive.
Lovely Meetinghouse and scene of the mishap.
As we were leaving the building, the sun was shining so brightly and I was singing and laughing with the Sisters. I looked up and closed my eyes to absorb the sunlight, and in doing so I missed the last step. (The yellow curb in the picture.) I have missed steps before but never have I fallen as hard as I did then. I know I heard my ankle snap and both President and I thought that for sure I had broken it. I also scratched a knee, bruised both hands, and landed right on my glasses. Amazingly my glasses were not even bent and knowing that scratches and bruises quickly heal, I was more worried about my ankle. President helped me balance and I hopped to the car. My ankle was swelling and the sweet, sweet Sisters were so worried about their Mission Mom. (And President Tye now had two emergencies)
I could make this an even longer story - but the short version is that I had an X-ray and ended up with a really bad sprain, and the Sister missionary is finally feeling better. She received a truck load of antibiotics and I got an ice pack and a Cankle.
