Update on the foot

I went to the Orthopedic doc this morning and saw the x-ray of my break, not so pretty. But the doc checked me out and because I also sprained my ankle--which I figured since it is swollen and almost more painful than my foot, I will have to wear the nasty boot until the ankle feels better. Then I can wear the shoe for another 4-6 weeks. I am soooo annoyed with the boot and most especially the crutches, they are awful. I can start walking on it as soon as it doesn't hurt to put pressure on it. Luckily my mom has been able to help get Holden to swim lessons and me to the doc and all that, since I can't drive with the boot, I will be able to with the shoe though. The good news is I don't need surgery to fix it since it is a pretty clean and straight break. I am still annoyed at my stupidness for having done it in the first place, but what can you do????

Well, at least you don't need surgery. That's good, right? :) I can't even imagine having to deal with a broken foot and two kids! I wish I was there to help you out a little. Hang in there!

Thank heavens for moms! Well here is your chance to take a mini-vacation. I hope your swelling goes down soon. But hey! I would love to not have to get in the car for awhile and have someone else do my running around for me! Rest up!

Oh, I am sorry Mandy! I am still confused how it happened...You will have to tell me when I see you next---that sucks, though...Love ya...When I come home I will take at least Holden or Caleb off your hands...I don't know if I can handle 3 kids at once...but 2, definitely--maybe they can each take a turn swimming at my pool..I dunno...
