Just a couple days ago, well, exactly 6 days ago, I turned 11. It was not the day I was expecting, so lets start from the begging.
On Friday, the 9th, I sprained my foot badly. I was over at a friends house. We were throwing basketballs from the top of the steps. I wanted to see what happened when I jumped off the 4 steps and through the basketball at the same time. I did it, and instead of landing on the ground, I landed on the last step. I landed on the side of my foot and felt immediate pain. I sat down thinking it would pass. It didn’t. I tried to walk back to the steps but couldn’t. I hopped. My friend went to get his mom. She gave me an icepack. She called my mom. My mom had to drive me home.
That same night I went to a walk-in. They couldn’t find anything on the x-rays. It was a sprain. They splinted me up and I went home.
The next few days I had people sign my splint and decorate my crutches. They made me a big get well sign. They helped me down the stairs. They were such a big help.
On Monday, September 12, I went the the orthopedic. He said the same thing, it was a bad sprain. He put me in one of the big black walking boots, which I am still in. He said to still use the crutches and when it gets better, start walking in the boot. It really hurt. But I got through it okay.
So now Tuesday, September 13, 2011, my birthday. I was supposed to go to an all day nature camp that started on my birthday, but I couldn’t go. I was waiting for this for 6 months. So instead of that, I invited my best friends over for a movie and popcorn.
They brought Lindt chocolates and my mom made brownies. We watched Marmaduke and Chrissa. It was fun. Then later that evening, I had my piano lesson. Then we went to pick up my dad at the train station. We ordered pizza, and went to pick up a cake. By the time we got home the friendlies cake was a little melted. We ate and sang happy birthday. Then I sliced the cake.
We opened some more gifts. I saved some for when my dad came home. I got 2 cool mythology books, a scratch magic, 2 Harry Potter lego sets, a beautiful perfume, 2 shirts, 2 pajama bottoms, 3 plain white shirts, a hiking tool, a book, a rain gage, 2 mugs, 6 owl plates and a lego board. From my aunt I got a shirt, a mood necklace, and 2 UCONN items. From my cousin I got a book and a bracelet.
So, as you can see, I had a good birthday. Thanks for reading!
