Update on my leg :^(

Yes, I finally have a diagnosis for my leg/calf muscle injury.

The doctor said I have good news you don't need surgery. BUT, (Love when doctors say but) I have a partially torn soleus muscle. After that he stated that even though I don't need surgery this is a very painful injury. His exact words where "It hurts like hell." Love the bluntness of my doctor.

So I was given a new fashion accessory (see pic below) and told not to put my weight on it for another two weeks.

Great, another two whole weeks of dealing with the dreaded crutches.

I go back in two weeks and re-evaluate and see if I am ready for weight and therapy. Oh boy!

If you remember my other splint was just that a splint not a boot. It was not that heavy. Well this stupid boot is VERY heavy. My thigh and knee are killing me from walking with it. Not only that it is big and bulky.  Which means I have hit it more today then I did the other one.

Did I mention I can't get it totally comfortable. 

I know I am whining but it huuuurrts. As my daughter would say. 

Speaking of my daughter. I am trying to decide exactly what all homeschool curricula I will use next
year. I know I will continue to use with my two littles but I am thinking of adding All About Reading Pre-Reading. Still trying to figure out what else I might add.

Still figuring out what I will do for Biggun to use to homeschool high school. High school is a whole new world for us. Praying for God's guidance in a major way.
