Like a Bratwurst

That’s how Hubs described my foot to the Doc yesterday.  No joke.  Break is still there.  Originally Doc wanted to keep me in casts for 4 more weeks.  Yikes!  But Hubs, Doc and I realized just how much the swelling went down MINUTES after they removed the cast.

So now I am back in my original splint.  For now.  Hopefully this can prove to be a better fit for my monster swelling.  I’m also scared of my foot being less immobilized now.  I just want to do what’s right for my foot.

When I went in two weeks ago, when they removed the first cast to X-ray, etc, I knew I needed the cast back one.  My foot was just too tender.

This time?  My foot was doing much better at the appt.  However it has been so sensitive/tender since yesterday afternoon.  It may just be the weather.  But I’m scared.  Should I go back and have it casted again?  My heel hurts too.  This is new.  But Hubs readjusted the splint this morning…So far…So good.

And my new permawheels?  New motors are in.  And we’re up and running.

Score two for the home team.

IMG_0013That is what this tiny (but not THAT tiny) man said to me yesterday when we were at the table eating brunch.  Melted my heart.  Dubs and I both have bad allergies at the moment so Dubs spent the night last night and we shared the humidifier…

Best night’s sleep I’ve had in a while…



P.S. I bought another humidifier today.

Thank You’s

My last post concerning my broken ankle seems to have generated a lot of support that I am infinitely grateful for…you readers rock!  Blogging and broken bones are both new to me, the latter of which leaves me vulnerable.  But not everything is about a broken foot, I get that.

When I am coping with any challenge, particularly those that are medical in nature, I try to deal with them in moderation – have time for feelings, to be honest with myself/Hubs (and others), but also to see the constants.  What has not, and will not change…

Who I am.  Who I love.  Who love me.

More to come.

Hugs and High Fives,


Electro Man

Zap! When Dubs’ first started school (I fully realize I dropped the quotes, preschool is not that far away) the first themed day was about superheroes. Well, we did not have much in the line of super/spider/batman…he had superman pj’s at 18 months, but they are now more like superman capris. And his Harry Potter shirt? Completely outgrown.
So we did not send him in any superhero outfit. According to that day’s report card, they made him a cape out of a trash bag and called him “Electro Man.”
Well the name must have stuck. This kid loves turning on the light before entering a room, or when we first get home. What cracks me up though is that he will also turn OFF the light when he leaves the room. Tonight after he finished brushing his teeth in Hubs’ and my master bathroom, I called him from the bedroom so we could go get Hubs and go night night. And of course, without any prompting, he turned off the light himself!
I know I must reek of first time mommydom but I am loving the perks of toddlerhood!
