There are disadvantages to loosing weight. Sometimes your favorite summer sandals get kind of loose and sloppy. Sometimes you keep on wearing them, partly because you paid so much for them, and well, they are just so comfortable and cute! The problem with this is that uneven ground combined with loose sandals can cause slipping - that's what happened on our last day at the beach in North Bay. Four weeks ago or so.
I thought right away that I heard something pop, but I didn't want to complain too much. I complain enough as it is! Today I finally saw the podiatrist, and guess what? It's a fracture. Now I have a new best friend, a cam walker. For six weeks.
I'm trying to be cheerful, but it's discouraging. I'm thankful I didn't try to walk the Bridge at Mackinac. I'm glad to know all my pain wasn't just me being a whiner. I'm glad to be able to afford treatment. I'm still having trouble being thankful in all circumstances, but I'm working on it!
If you didn't know that I was a stubborn and difficult woman before this, you do now! I was foolish not to get it looked at sooner, but I was just sure I had twisted it and it would heal sooner or later. It's my optimistic personality - given enough time everything gets better, right? Apparently not foot fractures that you are still walking on!
Sooooooooooo.. just how does a mama 'stay off' her feet for 4-6 weeks? I'm not sure!
Here I thought my patience was perfected! I guess the Lord is still working on me in that department!
