Ankle sprain

I took a sick day today so I could get to the doctor for an x-ray.

While waiting to get my ankle checked, I sipped on some coffee and read about introverts (which is a subject that has been fascinating me lately, more on that another day).

Turns out my ankle is sprained, luckily. The doc could see my old fracture from 2007 on the x-ray, but didn’t believe that my injury from yesterday was related to that injury at all. He said the bones and ligaments would have healed by now.

While waiting to get a brace, a little (well big in the eyes of a bug hater) visitor came under the door. It was a centipede! I HATE centipedes, even more than spiders. I haven’t even seen one in our house yet, thank god. I hopped up to higher ground and then the radiologist came in and I told her why I looked so terrified. The doctor had a good laugh at my fear, but he understood.

I was fitted with a figure 8 brace.

And given some pain pills before being sent on my way. On Monday, I need to see the physical therapist, even though ankle therapy is something I know by heart by now.

I was starving when I got home and made myself a turkey wrap with provolone, spinach, frank’s red hot sauce and sweet peppers. I had some cottage cheese on the side. I’ve been obsessed with cottage cheese lately. I have to buy the 4% milkfat to really love the flavor. Living in Switzerland spoiled me with wonderful cottage cheese and anything besides the 4% milkfat tastes fake to me.

All wrapped up. I love wraps and never get sick of them.

Dessert was blood orange Ciao Bella sorbet. I saw it on Healthy Tipping Point the other day and knew I had to try it. I am also obsessed with anything blood orange lately, thanks to Chobani!

Karma wanted to try some too.

I’m going to rest on the couch and maybe read for a bit. Catch you later! Have a great Friday.
