Foot Update

Humpty Dumpty too, had a great fall!

Foot Update Timeline
Tuesday, February 24th - Fell down the stairs. Life as I know it was over, Fear of amputation :)
Wednesday - Was able to limp around and stay off of it most of the day
Thursday - Felt much better, called and canceled my podiatrist appointment, because I am cheap and didn't want to pay for the specialist to tell me nothing was wrong and it would just take some time to heal.
Friday - Horrible pain again. It figures.
Saturday - Left very early for our anniversary trip. Again being stupid, I didn't want to take the crutches, because I felt like a dork. When we arrived at our destination, we took a nap and I felt amazing afterwards. I had figured out a way to walk on the side of my foot that didn't hurt too bad and didn't make me look like a gimp.
Sunday - Slept in and only walked a minimal amount to our show. After the show, was unable to walk at all and Josh had to give me a piggy back all the way to our Hotel. Stupid me again for walking so much the day before. Note to self. "Self, If things feel good after an injury, still take it easy and allow for complete healing." OK. Got it.
Monday was an unable to walk day , much like the very first day. So we got a wheelchair and Josh had fun pushing me around like a maniac. At some points it was frightening. I of course being the smart a** that I am would say things, such as, when we would get too close to the busy street, "Be careful, I don't want to get hit by a car again." Implying that was why I was in the wheelchair. Or when we would come upon stairs or an escalator, "Don't get too close, I don't want to fall down the stairs again." Which was actually a true statement, but made the constant hoards of people around us look at Josh funny for taking me so close to the thing that caused me anguish. I know I'm evil.
Which leads us to today. I am just trying to take it easy. I am reconsidering going to the podiatrist. On one hand, it get to the point that is soo bad I again cannot even walk. On the left hand, I am not doing a good job of staying off of it and alowing it to heal. When it feels well enough to walk on, I do. So today the house will stay messy, Josh will have to find his own dinner ans Aiden might not get all the attention he needs. I'll keep you posted.
As for all the comments about the previous post. What can people do to help???? I am sure Aiden would love to go to everbody's houses and play, but I honestly really miss him. ALOT. Thanks everybody for offering. I may need help yet and I will let you know.
