Evening update: I did get in to Dr. Rowe’s office today — and I have a hard, walking cast on my foot. The break is a slanted break in an area that the doctor feels will heal. He said that it will take time, but it should be okay with a hard cast and keeping it immobile. He said that I can go to Women of Faith. (That is, if I am careful! Do you all hear me singing a gladsome song of praise?) A fracture a little more in the direction of my heel and he said that I would have to have had surgery — with a plate and screws and such. That area just won’t heal without intervention. This area, though pokey about it, should heal just fine!
I am a gal with a very thankful heart. The story could have been so different, and God has been so good to me. I have also decided that there will be no heroics. I am going to try to do as much as I can from my chair and do what the Doctors say to do. I bet I will be bored, but I am also excited about all the stuff I can do from a sitting position. So keep me in your thoughts and prayers, and I will try to keep you all posted!
