Missing in Action... Or why I am really really stressed

Just wanted to issue a blog-pology for being missing in action. It was first because I thought I could do everything without having Internet in the condo until little Toasty moved in. Mistake. I am a researcher in every aspect of my life and had a series of failures because I could not fully explore an idea before I tried to cook. Good food, but nothing I was proud enough to share.

And then Thursday night happened. I am a short girl who loves a tall ridiculous shoe, so of course I've had my share of rolled ankles. I was trying to get home after kickball and slipped in a puddle, dislocating it after years of pressing my luck. I flagged down a guy on a bike who found me a cop to hold the ankle in place until I could get to the emergency room. I am a squeamish person so even I don't know how many bones are broken because I refuse to see the x-rays. Monday I am headed into surgery to put everything back into place.

I want to thank little Toasty for being amazing and taking care of all of the gross talk for me in the ER, my dad for racing up to DC and taking care of me, and my mom for getting me my favorite foods and trashy magazines and anything else I need.

I am trying to look on the bright side of this in terms of getting ready for quals for my PhD candidacy but I'm itching to get back into the lab. I need to take care of myself and my work right now, so unfortunately I'll be taking a brief sabbatical from blogging.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me so far and I'll hope you'll come back when I do!


  1. Oh no! Sorry to hear about your accident Sarah! (Reading this makes me glad I gave up the heels decades ago) Hope you're up and around and back in the lab soon. Take care of yourself.

  2. I'm a tall girl, so I wear flats--but I still rolled my ankle in flip flops watering my herbs this summer. So---you can do it in heels or without them!
    SO sorry to hear you're down. Be better so that you can cook some sweet stuff for yourself, Sarah! Healing hugs, Alyce (More Time at the Table)

  3. So sorry to hear - wishing you a speedy recovery and a full recovery.

  4. Yikes! I hope you're feeling better soon!

  5. Thinking of you...hope all is as good as it can be. Happy, healthy Friday!
