About an hour ago I severly twisted my ankle while walking in the very rugged hillside woods next to my home. I managed to make it out of there to the house without screwing it up to much more. As soon as I got home I started drinking beer. (I am a firm believer in getting the meds started as quickly as posssible.) I now have this sissy ankle elevated and iced. Now for the question.
My ice maker is not working and my limited ice supply is going fast. Do I take ice from the beer cooler or just let my injury swell? I'm afraid the beer will get warm and lose some of its medical value. On the other hand (or foot in this case) the stupid ankle is really looking nasty even with ice on it. I can put the beer in the fridge but I really want to keep the cooler close to me. Mrs 6pak is going to bring me more beer and ice but has some business meeting so will not be here for several hours.
Beer or ankle. Which one gets the ice?
I was going to check with webmd about this but thought I would get better advice here.
