Tomorrow will be 4 weeks since the kids and I were in our car accident. Today, I went to my Orthopedic to find out the results from my MRI. We finally got some good news!! I do not have a lisfranc fracture. Yeah... look that up and you will probably get despressed like I did. Most of the time, this type of fracture requires surgery and you end up with life long chronic pain. Boo and no thanks!!
Today, I found out that I have deep bone bruising and a fracture on the right side of my foot. This takes about 6-8 weeks to heal and I can now start putting weight on that foot- as much as I can tolerate. With the lisfranc, I wasn't allowed to put any weight on my foot because that could cause more damage. So, unless I fell, I was relying solely on my crutches and wheelchair. Which this is causing pain in my forearms and shoulders.
Now, I can practice driving - which I haven't done since the accident. I am so excited!! Freedom! I am still limited until I can walk without the crutches because I still can't carry Izzy. But we are making progress.
|After my trip to Target. It wasn't successful. I ran into every isle and I got really close and personally with our rose bushes.|
After our accident, I was bruised everywhere you can imagine. Most of my bruising has healed now and I am finally getting back to my "normal"self.
|Everyone is enjoying using the wheelchair. I am not the most graceful so we will probably have to paint our house after all is said and done.|
|Izzy's boo-boos from her seatbelt. So thankful that this is all she had.|
|I am finally getting a little more coordinated on these crutches. At first, I thought they were going to kill me.|
|Daddy has taken on the role of both Mommy and Daddy. I owe him BIG time after all of this.|
|Papa (aka the best Daddy in the world) trying to make my toes look pretty.|
|Izzy got her first pedicure as well. It took a village to make sure she didn't get polish everywhere.|
Hopefully, in a few weeks this will all be behind us and we can move forward. I am so ready for our "normal" life again.
