Well I finally got some answers today.
Still have the tendonitis- not only in the peroneal tendon but the achilles as well. Fabulous.
But it get’s better! Remember the “damage” from the fabulous phone call on Friday?
Well it ended up being a tear in the peroneal tendon. Luckily it isn’ t a “bad” tear and it isn’t a full tear/rupture so all in all it was a pretty good day for me.
Unfortunately I brought MrBunny to the dr. with me (had a pretty strong feeling that I wasn’t going to be driving myself home from this one) and he and the dr. found themselves to be kindred spirits when it came to my situation. They formed a united front and proceeded to read me the riot act. It was absolutely ridiculous. Then I call my mom when I get to the car and she’s on their side! I mean come on. Her actual statement was “Why don’t you try something new- comply.” I’ll say this- if my husband and mother were to join forces more often I’d be frightened. They are very difficult to stare down.
So three months after I first noticed my foot starting to hurt I hobbled out of the dr.’s office today with not only a boot… but crutches as well!
You better believe I’m rocking the zebra print.
Okay, I’m not.
But if I was so inclined to spend money to pimp out my crutches I’d probably go this route:
So that I’d have a constant reminder (outside of the annoying one known as MrBunny- it’s only been seven hours and already he’s maxed out his mother hen moments for the decade) that if I don’t stay off my foot and I don’t take the time now to get it healed then I will more than likely be shooting myself in the foot (pun totally intended) when it comes to enlisting. Because if I end up needed surgery it is going to be a long road back to 100% and my enlistment hopes will take a huge step back.
And when I think about it that way I’m able to make myself use the crutches. And that is not an easy task!
By the way- if you were so inclined to purchase decorations for the hobbled person in your life you can find them at LemonAid Crutches. Make sure you read the “about us” section, you’ll want to purchase a set whether you need it or not!
Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end of my whining posts about my foot. Probably not.
Those second set of crutches are almost perfect. I would just want them in MARPAT.
They are pretty cool aren’t they? I’m sure you could find a MARPAT pretty easily. I’m positive that everything you could ever imagine (in your worst nightmare at times) can be found on either ebay or etsy!
