Abnormal Ankle

Although my legs are hairy right now, they're not that hairy. Spencer hurt his ankle playing basketball on a BYU intramural team. They started with four players, so when Spencer got injured they had to play 3 on 5. 
(But Spencer would also like me to let you know that they still beat them by 30 points)
When Spencer got back from the game and asked for some Tylenol I knew it must have really hurt. I've never known him to take any kind of (OTC or prescription) medicine. Ever. Saturday morning we took him to the Student Health Center. After a brief examination they decided it would be best to do some x-rays. Apparently the x-rays were normal. But that is according to an OBGYN who was the doctor on staff that morning. Since there were no abnormal ovaries to be seen in the x-ray he said it was just a bad sprain. Little Spencey Baby has been on crutches ever since. The swelling is finally going down and the bruising is making its appearance on both sides of the ankle and the toes.

Poor spencer. That looks a lot like Jason's sprain last fall (the season that is :)) It took him months before it was normal again. Let us know if we can do anything for either or you!!

BAHAHAHAH!! Don't worry I never thought that was you foot, and at least his feet/toenails are clean.If I were to try to post the same picture of skyler's leg...
1. Everyone would probably think it is my legs just really hairy because his legs are RIDICULOUSLY skinny.
2. Everyone would puke all over the screen when they saw the picture because skyler has such nasty feet...Don't tell him I said that.

P.S. This is skyler's account, HAHAHAHA
