How in the heck am I going to do this? :(

I don't think I posted last year but last Christmas Eve when I was 8 months pg with Naomi I fell down 13 stairs in our house. Obviously Naomi was fine but I hurt my foot pretty bad. I didn't break it but definitely hurt it. I was in a boot for 2 weeks and then nothing. It has bothered me constantly since then. I finally went back to the doctor right after Thanksgiving. They did more xrays, a MRI (I have a lot of random stuff going on in there) and put me back in a boot for 3 weeks. I went back for my followup this morning. The boot has not helped so now I am on crutches for 3 weeks. I have to be totally off of my foot - I can't even walk to the bathroom without my crutches. How on God's green earth am I going to do this with a 4yo and an 11 mo running around the house? I'm quite discouraged right now. If it's not any better in 3 weeks I will insist on looking into a permanent fix, probably surgery. I'm just bummed out!

  • Sounds like it will be tough to do but you have to follow doctors orders! Then after the craziness of the holidays you will call me and I will take your kiddos for the day so you can rest!

    Sorry you have to deal with that! Call me if you need anything.

  • Why are they putting you back in the boot? My friend broke a metatarsal bone in her foot and had the boot on- which did not help, so they are suggesting surgery to pin it into place for it to finally heal. Is this a similar situation or is it that you are just so active that it doesn't heal properly on its own?

    I cannot imagine dealing with that and 2 little kids. God Bless you and give you patience to deal with it all. Speedy recovery!
