I gots me a boo-boo.

Soooooo, about a week ago, Dan and I went to play tennis. We played for literally 3minutes when I said, "Ouch, I think I have a cramp in my biarticulate gastrocnemius muscle." (okay, I probably said calf muscle) So Dan was kind of annoyed and we stopped playing. I came home, put my leg up, iced it and wrapped it in an ace bandage. (because I'm a nurse and that's what we do). Anyway, I thought it was pretty much fine, so on Monday we took the boys out to play tennis. Everything was going just dandy. The boys and I were up on Dan a couple of points in a competitive game of 21. Then, all of the sudden, I felt my gastrocnemius muscle break apart like a piece of wood at a Karate tournament. OUCH*@*^&%. That was it, I could no longer walk. So I hobbled home and nursed my ouwie. I looked up my prognosis online. It looks like probably a stage 2 tear. No problem. I can handle it. It should be as good as new in only 4 to 6 weeks. So I've tried to rest as much as possible, although I did have to work the next night. Not fun! So here is a video of me resting with my boys.



I don't know why, but today it hurts even worse.

Hey Sis., Remember me, your old comp. Hatchy, here. You're supposed to be taking it easy ;) but I'm not surprised because it's just like you.
So, I've learned that you are an RN like my husband is and that both of us have a son named Noah. So cool!
Come check us out on our blog so you can see for yourself:

Sorry about your leg, but I just wanted to say that your hair is soooo long! I really like it.

What happened to your last post? I wasn't logged in when I read it this morning, so I couldn't make a comment. I completely agreed with you.

Your hair is SOOOOOO long!!! Your getting no sympathy from me... sure it was tennis... I'm guessing it was really a back flip over the net! You can pretend with everyone else but I know you better than that!!

LOL Jami, I don't know WHAT you're talking about.
