I was hoping to post a video of Jocelyn walking all across the room like she did two nights ago. I planned on making one yesterday until we had a little slipup. And so my lesson learned is…
…DONT WALK DOWN CARPETED STAIRS IN SOCKS, YOU ARE BOUND TO SLIP AND FALL.
I was headed downstairs, Jocelyn on my hip, to do some laundry. We made it to about the third step down when my foot slipped and down we went . Luckily there is a landing cutting our stairs in half, otherwise we would have gone down 10 stairs. By the time we reached the bottom of 4 stairs, we were both in tears. I called Justin to come home from work because he had the car. He was confused at first because all he could hear was screaming. I got Jocelyn undressed to make sure she was okay. I couldn’t see anything wrong. By the time Justin got home her ankle had swelled pretty bad and was turning black and blue. I think her right foot got caught behind me when we fell. We decided to take her to the ER to be safe. My backside and arm were bruised but I decided that I was okay. They had to take some x-rays of her foot, but everything turned out to be fine, just a little swollen and bruised. They gave her some medicine for the pain, told us to take it easy and sent us on our way. I have probably delayed her walking video a week or so, but when she is back to normal we will make sure to get a good one. Today we are relaxing and I think she is feeling better. We are both just pretty sore. So to any moms out there, please be careful on your stairs!!
No broken bones in the foot
I wanted to share this because you can see her cute little chubby leg and no broken bones!
