The Results of my Medical Check-up….
Everytime I’m in the US I have the priviledge of getting my medical check-ups…medical, dental, optical…all that fun poking and proding. Well, while I was at it I decided that maybe I should have my foot/ankle checked out since it was still giving me a little trouble going down stairs and when I got up after sitting for awhile. I was able to get the x-rays done and I knew there was a problem when my doctor’s office had already called and left a message on our machine before we even got home. So, it was back in the car and off to the orthopedic’s office.
An hour and too many dollars later I left with my left foot encased in this knee-high black plastic, foam and velcro “boot” walking “splint” that I’m supposed to wear 24/7 for the next 4 weeks! I don’t really get it…I mean I’ve been walking on it for 6 weeks already, but apparently there is a small bone on the outer side of my foot that I broke in the fall in May that is not healing. They hope that the added support will give the bone a chance to heal. I’m supposed to get more x-rays in a month.
So here I am, on vacation, traveling on the 8th with luggage and a six year old and a big walking boot. At least I don’t have to use crutches. You know how hard it is to carry anything with crutches?? God is good….all the time!
