for the bum foot. I'm sorry to hear it may be so serious. Just out of curiosity, if your doctor thinks that casting and being non weight-bearing are aggressive treatment, what does he think is more conservative?
: In my experience, that IS conservative treatment! Good that he is sending you on to a specialist, though. I never would have thought to send you to a PM&R...they usually help manage chronic pain or spinal issues. Can't wait to hear more about your journey! Thanks to my background, I love to hear stories about the paths people take to diagnosis and the different treatment options that they're given.
Sorry to hear that they turned down your proposal. But YAY for working PT! I hope you enjoy it and that it works out well for you and your family!
Just got DS down for his nap after a busy morning. I dragged myself out of bed at a relatively early hour so we could get out for a run, then back home to shower so we could go to the big ski sales. Labor Day weekend is when all the HUGE ski blowout sales are here in Denver. I bought new skis in June, but they've been sitting all naked down in my garage, in need of bindings. I found a pair that I think (hope) will be good for a great price, and also got a new pair of goggles. It was kind of nice to buy my own goggles for once. H has always bought our goggles in the past and it usually consists of going in and finding the biggest deal he can and buying two pair.
: I, on the other hand, talked to the rep, tried them on, and made sure that the tint will work for what I want them for. Oh yeah, and they're a very pretty purple.
Now I just need to get my butt in gear to finish the house cleaning and get started packing for our crazy trip. Have I mentioned this trip at all? Get this...we fly out tomorrow morning (at 7 am OUCH) for Cincinnati. Fly back Friday morning. Then we'll leave Saturday morning to drive up to Rapid City to meet my parents and will stay there until Wednesday. Back home for a day, then we'll drive down to Durango (with my parents, but in separate cars since they're going on to the Grand Canyon) for a few more days. It should be a fun trip (well, trips), but I am NOT looking forward to the portions involving me and a 2 year old alone in the car for 6-8 hour drives!
rr~4 miles this morning with dog and DS in the Chariot. Well, DS in the chariot, not the dog.
The first two miles were a little rough, but then I got warmed up and felt great! And now, I get the pleasure of being around grandparents and not having to run pushing the stroller for two whole weeks.
