Oh No@#%#$%&^^$


Treadmills
Well, as the saga of the retiring teacher continues........I have to add yet another chapter:( After suffering pain in my left foot and ankle for the past 11 days.......I rushed into the doctor:) Not really, I have been going to the chiropractor every other day for the past week for acupuncture (sp?) and electro-therapy! The problem was.....it was getting worse and more swollen:( Yesterday, I could take it no longer and went to the Urgent Care close by. After more xrays they found a stress fracture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO, NO, NO.........three days before our trip to Vegas. We are to drive to K.C. Sunday to stay with my son and daughter-in-law and then Monday we were all flying to Vegas for a nice fun vacation. This was our Birthday present from Jeff and Arica:) As luck would have it.....the doc said absolutely no pressure on the foot as in wheelchair or crutches:( Do you have any idea how hard it is to race around on crutches. First, you can't carry a thing with you.....no arm loads of tea, cigs, mail and other sundry items. Since my computer and studio are on the lower level of our home......that means stairs......need I say more! How do we create art without flying around the studio getting this and that to try for the effect we want:( How will I fly.................
Well, it is what it is and I will see an orthopedic doc this afternoon......my only hope now is a walking cast (but my hopes are not very high since the doc at U.C. said it will not heal with any weight on it:( Well, I know there are worse things out there and I should be thankful......like strong little JoAnna! And I am........but if you see a old lady being pushed through the cassinos at the Golden Nugget......you can guess who it is:)
