It's been over 3 weeks since I blogged.
There has been so much going on, but yet nothing much.
My foot is still broken and I still can't drive.
We are still waiting for the adoption paperwork to be processed and finalized.
I've finally healed enough to be able to get around better. I'm trying to make the transition to using only one crutch around the house so that frees up one hand to be able to carry things. It feels great to not always have to rely on others to bring me even a drink of water or the phone! We'll hear more about how the bone is actually healing at my appointment next week. Apparently I have a bad enough break that I was a candidate for surgery the week after it happened. When I got my 2nd xray a week later, the Orthopedist told me that if the break was in a slightly different place, I'd need surgery NOW... Oh my goodness, I am thankful that was not the case! The doctor will see how I've healed after 12 weeks and decide if I need surgery to put a screw or pin in and I'm really hoping that's not the case because that's almost the last thing I want to do this summer!
We had a particularly busy week with lots of appointments, meetings, church and night shift. And not just regular night shift, but the early one where my husband has to be ready no later than 6pm. Of course, he is usually ready around 5:45. There's nothing like cooking dinner at 4pm (well, cooking for me these days is sitting on the bar stool chopping vegetables) to eat at 5pm and then showering and getting your jammies on at 5:30 because you can't get in and out of the shower yourself. Life could be worse of course, so it's important to keep things in perspective.
So, I am learning that the things we think are so important in our schedule aren't always. If the house doesn't get a good cleaning every week, your family will survive. If all you can do is lay in bed and then move to sit on the couch and then back to your bed again, do it with a good attitude. If God sits you on your rear for a few weeks, you better not try to fight it and instead make the best of it!
