There is further testing that can be done to be certain of a stress fracture but either way the treatment is the same. If I wanted to know just for the sake of knowing for sure then they would do that testing but to me it seems a bit silly not to mention more time and money just to end up doing the same treatment anyway.
So, now I get to wear this fabulous boot. Grey is sooo the new black!
|Yeah, it doesn't look goofy at all...|
After 3 weeks I will see if there is any improvement and if so then I can try a light jog. If not then I have to keep wearing the boot. I also was given a list of a few exercises that I have to do everyday along with continuing to roll my foot on a frozen water bottle.
Danyelle has already gotten a good laugh at my expense. She knows my schedule of drop off kid 1, pick up kid 2, then pick up kid 1, etc... which all means that I will be driving without the boot and then have to put it on before I walk in to pick up my kids, then take it back off when I get back in the car. Rinse and repeat all day long because I basically do little else than run my children to school and other activities. The velcro on this boot is going to get quite the workout. Plus, I get to feel just a little stupid having to wear the boot for the 10-15 minutes it takes to get my daughter or son into school and set up. Then just take it back off again when I get back out to the car.
Between Syria and the government shutdown my foot really doesn't rank very high on the list of world problems though. Keeping that in mind, I will continue to give thanks to God and choose happiness as I strive to stay sane. :)
Peace, Love, Happiness!
