The bad news is I fell down the stairs with Max yesterday. The good news is I did not break my foot or ankle and Max is not at all injured. We fell a couple of steps and hit the landing, and the only damage seems to be a bad sprain on my left foot. The official report says I tore two and maybe all three ligaments there, but no breaks and no bone chips, which is all good news, or at least as good as it can get. I have a new fancy pants boot that inflates with air to wear for the next four to six weeks, including for all our upcoming travel plans - starting tomorrow. But I should be back at work as regularly scheduled.
