Another one bites the dust

Unfortunatley the stairs have claimed another victim.

Anyone who has been to our place can attest to the fact that the stairs are no joking matter. There are a lot of them, they are steep and they are slippery. I try to remember to always wear sneakers when running around the house because about a month ago I slid down seven or eight steps bruising my back. Unfortunatley, Phil did the same thing last night and sprained his foot. This picture was after our trip to the doctor, which was also an adventure since the doctor spoke very little English.

The conversation went something like this while we all looked at the x-ray...

Doctor: I see a fracture.
Me: He fractured his foot?
Doctor: No, it is not a fracture.
Me: Should he keep it elevated?
Doctor: No, but keep it up whenever possible.
