I sprained my ankle playing volleyball yesterday.
Ang sakit pala ng hindot na yan!
I was getting the ball and hit my teammate. I stepped on her foot and twisted my ankle. Hindi kasi pang volleyball yung shoes na gamit ko kaya hindi okay. When I fell, I felt bilgang uminit yung ankle ko then biglang sumakit ng todong todo. I couldn’t move. I heard people shouting “Wag niyong galawin!”. And then I heard Anika beside me. Apparently, she ran inside the court. She was shouting, “Nanay, what happened?!” “Babe!!!!!!” “Nanay, are you okay?!” “Baaabe!!” “Nanay, are you okay?!”.
Thank God, Alvin watched my game that day. Ang dalang niyan manood ng laro ko. I am very, very thankful nandiyan siya. While writhing in pain sa court floor, my eyes were shut in agony, I heard Alvin say “Ano nangyari?”. I grabed him and sobbed at his shirt. The medics got me para matuloy yung laro.
My ankle looked like this.
Tragis. Napaka-sakit sobra. Buti walang video kasi ang pangit ng face ko siguro while they were putting ice for the swelling. I stopped crying when I realized Anika was behind me sobbing. She was scared daw. I had to suck it up and stop crying kasi natatakot yung bata. Pero hindi pa din ako bumibitaw kay Alvin.
We went to the ER after so they can Xray it. Good thing that there was no fracture. Na-sprain lang daw.
May comedy pa nangyari because the nurse asked when was my last period. Bawal kasi magXray pagbuntis di ba? Dun ko lang narealize I was delayed so they needed to do a pregnancy test first. Sabi ko kay Alvin, pregnancy test pregnancy test pa eh alam naman natin hindi tayo nabubuntis.
After 30 minutes the nurse arrived with the results. She looked at us and beamed. Nagthumbs up sign pa!
NURSE: Okay na po. Hindi po kayo buntis.
ALVIN: Umasa ako dun saglit ah.
ME: Uyyyyyy.. Umaasa ka pa pala!
ALVIN (to the nurse): Nakangiti ka kasi eh! Tapos may thumbs up sign pa. Bakit ka nagthumbs up sign?!
NURSE: Ibig pong sabihin go for Xray.
So there, I’m home and I’m instructed to rest for 3-5 days. Ang tagal. God, I hope the swelling goes down by tomorrow. Maybe I’ll go for 3 days lang. Ang dami kong kailangan gawin at work!
And Alvin’s nagging me so bad! Ayaw ako pagalawin! Nakakaloka! Akala mo baldadong baldado ako.
I’m happy Anika and Alvin are here to take care of me. Si Anika talagang todo din. Napaka-bait. She never complained the whole day today even though utos ako ng utos sa kanya.
Osha, I wanna get well so I can exercise again. Thanks for your well wishes guys!
