Foot update

Yesterday I went to see the Orthopedic surgeon and right now everything looks aligned and I do not need surgery for now. However if any bones move within the next week before my next set of x-rays then we will be discussing surgery for sure. If I get the clear again next Thursday I'll go in every two weeks for x-rays. I pray that we continue to get the no surgery thumbs up and that I learn to adjust to this new air cast I was given last night. It's much heavier than the split and I was in a lot more pain overnight. Thank goodness for modern medicine and pain meds!!!

The three bones that I broke are the middle metatarsals and 2 other little ones below them. There is also a chip off from my large toe metacarpal and a couple of other spots but those are not a huge concern. The Orthopedic said this is a very serious break and I am very lucky not to need surgery at this point. I also found out that I will not be allowed to weight bear for at least 3 very long months. Anyone want a cute little 11 month old baby boy? LOL Totally joking we are going to work on some techniques for Maddie to help with him more and I am going to do a lot of crawling around. Oh the stories my kids will have!!!
