Getting A Break

My family has been visiting us for the last week & one of the things we do when we are all together is taking a family picture.

We decided to do it yesterday at church since we'd all be dressed nicely & there would be lots of people we could ask to take a few pictures. After we'd taken some of the whole group, Asher decided he'd rather be running around than stand in one place any longer.

Grandpa & Grandma wanted a few pictures with the grandkids, so I was trying to round Asher up whilst wearing heels. It was not a good combination. I tripped a bit & hurt my foot, but figured I might have just sprained it somehow.

After we got home I iced it for awhile, but it wasn't getting much better & I wasn't sure it was even possible to sprain the side of a foot, so I decided to tag along with PChad since he was going to the hospital to visit a couple who had just had a baby that morning.

Three hours & four x-rays later, we found out that I have a fractured foot & will be the proud owner of a cast for the next 4-6 weeks. I just picked up some crutches today, but I'm wondering just how it'll work to carry Chancery for the next few weeks while I'm on them. And since it's my driving foot, looks like I'll be housebound for awhile too.


  1. Sorry to hear about your foot. My sister-in-law is currently sporting a cast because of a broken foot too! She dosn't have any kids to take care of though. Hope it all works out in the coming weeks.

  2. So sorry to hear about your foot! As if any of us has time to be incapacitated with kids to chase. :)

    Just wanted to let you know I got your profile posted. Thanks for playing. :))

  3. Oh dear that's a big ouch and a cast is a pain in the patooty at the best of times. Hope you're not bothered too much by pain or itching.

  4. did the family photo turn out? I was hoping you'd post it! (Could I be any more insensitive:)?)
