Sick and tired...

In case you didn't know... I am back styling yet another torture device!!!

I am sure you will all recall that back last year I was in a boot cast for about six months total. Due to some problems I was having with my left foot, and then I went back into the boot cast after I had surgery in Dec. Well... this time it is another device and on my other leg!!!

Sheesh - about ten weeks ago I fell in our kitchen on the tile floor. I landed right on my knee - I mean right on it!!! I cried like a baby it hurt so bad but I was able to get up and walk around so it must be ok - right?!?! WRONG!!!

Three weeks later the knee started bruising and was really sore, so when I went in for my regular check up with my family practice Dr. I told her what happened. She sent me over to x-rays and low and behold I had a fractured knee cap! She said there wasn't really anything that can be done for a fractured kneecap, just to please be careful not to break it completely cause then there WOULD be issues....

Fast forward - ten weeks later - my knee is still swelling and causing me issue so I get a referral and head to see the orthopedic Dr. Wouldn't you know - I leave there wearing this....

Now let me tell you there is nothing fun about this thing! I mean have you ever tried to go pee without bending your knee?!?! If not - go try it - seriously - go on - go try it... it isn't easy! (This is one of those times where I wish I had outdoor pluming if you know what I mean!!! Bahahaha!)

The plan is that I am to wear this for the next the next week and then go back to see him. If the inflammation is down - well then I get to go see my friends at PT again! Thrills - NOT!

Needless to say I am about sick and tired of trying out all these torture devices! And to add to the fact - I think this one is the worse to date! You should see me try to walk around - I feel like Forest Gump when he had braces on his legs. As a matter of fact- you should've heard hubby the other day - I was trying to race to get the phone which was ringing... Did he get up to help? Noooo... instead I hear this small voice say "Run Forest Run!" Sheesh!!!!

Well I think that is it for today! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend - no matter what you are off to do.... Oh but if you are planning to scrap those "Back to School" photos this weekend - don't forget that the August Grab Bag is still for sale!!!! I'm sure you can find some awesome stuff in there to help you get your layouts done!

Until Next Time!

Although I thought your Hubby a little mean to laugh at your predicament, I also had a smile :) I do hope you make a super quick recovery and get rid of these torture devices for good! cheers, caz
