Seriously, I was not made to be a bed ridden person. Sometimes I think it would be nice to just chill for a day- but, usually my fantasy involves a nice peaceful swimming pool with lots of sunshine and an endless supply of Diet Coke on the rocks and chocolate!
The reality STINKS!
Since my graceful spill on Thursday, Ross has been awesome and is doing all he can to make me comfortable- unfortunately I am not making it so easy on him- I can only hop or crawl- basically from bed to the toilet or shower and back- then I am worn out. Hopping up or down the stairs at our house is a great workout- and I just don't have the energy for it! SO, I talked Ross into getting me some crutches. I knew I could find a way to keep the weight off my foot for five days! Unfortunately I am a little awkward on the crutches and there's some fear (and I hate to admit it but its justified) that I may end up with more broken bones if I continue to pretend like I can use crutches.
For now- here is what we know. I have a fractured bone in my foot.The break is controversial- according to the emergency doc- so it all depends on the Orthopedic surgeon as to how we go about treating the break. One specialist may say "Surgery and 6 weeks recoevery"- the next may say "hard cast and 6 weeks recovery" and the next may say "its all looking great- go jogging in the morning and you'll never have another problem!!" (okay, I might have made that one up!)
So I see the Specialist Monday-- While Ross is living my life and following the cute kindergarten Bus everywhere it goes and seeing that Jayce gets off - ITS HIS FIRST DAY!! I will be sitting in a "specialists office" learning the fate of the next 6 weeks of my foots life. I will let you know how it goes!
