Alright, I have had the worst day. I got off of work and picked up Alice and we were planning to go out to eat but I needed to throw some laundry in the washing machine first. I was carrying the heavy laundry basket down the stairs when my redbone hound puppy went running down the stairs beside me. The two of us got tangled up and tumbled down the stairs. The puppy was yelping and I hit the floor yelling, my laundry scattered all over the stairs. I rolled over and looked for the puppy, who was crying. My ankle, knee, and wrist were hurting but I managed to get Nikki  to the vet where the we sat in the waiting room. The pain in my wrist was steadily growing worse and was swelling, despite the ice pack the receptionist gave me. The vet finally told me to leave Nikki with them and go to the hospital. So after Alice and I got a call from the vet telling me that the office was going to close soon I called my mother to get my dog, who's leg was broken and to come get Alice and feed her dinner. They finally x-rayed my wrist and I found out it was broken and my ankle was sprained and my knee was wrenched. I have a pretty purple cast now and my mean 'ol mommy bought Alice a pack of sharpie markers and told her to color all over it. I'm exausted and sore, and so is little Nikki so I'm letting her sleep in my bed tonight. All and all it's been an aweful day.
