Ankle update

Hello! I just got back from waiting over an hour at my orthopedic doctor. The healing is going well. I have 2-3 more weeks in a hard cast (I got a new one put on today.) Then I go into a walking boot. The first 2 weeks of that I still have to use crutches. So that is 4-5 more weeks on crutches. But the worst part (I did not know this) is that I can not drive until I am fully walking on walking boot (no crutches) and have had 1-2 weeks of physical therapy. So I can not drive for at least 5 weeks, possibly more. YIKES!!! That I was not expecting.

So it is a praise the healing is going well. It is also a praise that so far everything is going smoothly with getting Josh, Jason, & me the rides we need. Also a praise that all our food shopping has been getting done, as well as all our errands.

But I am a bit upset that I can not drive for at least 5 more weeks. That puts me to the third week of June. At least Jason will be done with gym and co-op at the end of May. Then I only have to worry about rides for Joshua to and from school. And Jason to doctor every other week.

It is not the end of the world.

Please pray that my job is ok with me not going back for 5 more weeks. I was not planning on being out that long (it has been 5 weeks since I have been at work as it is.)

Also pray for blessings for all those helping us:
My mom, Scott, Leighann, my aunt Donna, my grandma, my brother Eric, Laura, Monica, Cindy, Joanna, Brian, Gerri, Samantha, and everyone else.

The time is going very fast and you will be on your feet before you know it. Just relax and don't be afraid to ask for help. I of course could care less that your in a cast, but hey thats me,,,

Sorry I will try harder :)
