Bag of Frozen Corn, i knew it would come in handy for something

I tripped down the subway steps as I ran to catch a train this morning.

Note to self: don't run in the subway.

After spending 4 1/2 hours in the ER, I now am the proud owner of some crutches, an ace bandage and stuff that looks like batting for a quilt, a Velcro boot to wrap around the injured foot, and a prescription for an air cast.

Here's to severe sprains and my aching left foot/arch which is not used to doing double duty.

I'm wondering about my daily commute to work and how I'm going to manage the stairs... I'm thinking that NYC isn't too crutch friendly.



  1. Poor thing! Get better soon. I'm thinking you are right that NYC won't be too easy on a "crutchie"

  2. oh man, that's terrible!
    When they say 'survival of the fittest', that's this doggone place. Not a great city for the elderly or the stroller-encumbered or a lot of other things.

    sorry you fell, Bitter.
    Hope you're resting easy.

  3. I am so sorry, let us know if there is anything that we can do.

  4. Bitter!!! What have you done??? This is what happens when you try and walk and papparazzi at the same time! (Were you stalking our 'VIP visitor' from Friday as he took the subway like 'normal folks'? Shame on you!)
    Seriously, I can't believe this happened...hope the docs gave you good painkillers and that you're getting around ok at home. We miss you here at the office. Let us know if you need anything!!!

  5. Bitter!!!!!

    Here I was looking forward to seeing all those lovely photos from your trip and what do I see!!!!You had another trip (ha ha). What will we do with you? Hope you heal quickly and you feel better soon!!

  6. oh no!!!!! :(

    Can I help?

    I fell down the subway stairs a couple years ago. SO painful. OUCH!!!!

    I hope you feel better Bitter! Please let me know if I can help!

  7. I'm guessing your ankle is still pretty hurt since you've neglected posting...hint, hint. I hope you start feeling better so we can see some of the great shots I know you took.
