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????
