Well, we just got back from the doctor's office. Ever heard that saying, "Be careful what you wish for?" Well, I am feeling that adage right about now as I sit here trying to absorb the ramifications of the visit to the doctor. We found out that my foot is broken in two places. When the radiologist told me, I started to cry. Partly from relief that there is actually something wrong and I am not just being a drama queen. But partly from the question: What in the world am I going to do now??
They told me that because the breaks are in the base plate of my foot where the entire weight of your body is centered, I absolutely can not put any more weight on it. (And yes, the past day and a half where I have been trying to walk on it was probably not smart in hindsight.) He also recommended that I see an orthopaedic specialist soon and find out if I need PINS put into it. Pins, people. He said I could probably avoid that, seeing as how I am not an athlete and I am just a mom. (Yes, he really said that.) He also said they might cast it-- right now I just have an Ace bandage and one of those ugly shoe/boot looking things.
So, prayers appreciated. And anything else you can think of!
