i'm a gloworm...

Good news, after my x-ray this morning (at my one hour and 45 minute doctor visit) I don't have a fracture. Annnnd, that's about all I know. Other than the fact that I bet if we turned out all the lights and close the drapes in the house... I would glow. Thanks to all the x-rays and bone scans I've had in the past year. I'm just waiting until 9p rolls around so we can give that a try.

In other news, a few cracks have started to show in my hard-shelled,"so what if I'm crutches and can't run again" armor. Like when I scanned the room for my flip flops yesterday afternoon for all of two seconds. And when I realized I couldn't see them I started bawling made Ed come in the house and find them for me. Or when Ed told me the sweatpants I wanted to wear today (oh don't judge, i'm working from home today, see... i'm a grumpy elf) weren't clean and the tears started gushing out on their own.

Other than that, I'm still finding this all a bit comical. Although I won't lie, those of you out there racing and running... I started reading some blogs just now and wanted to throw my laptop across the room. So I may take another hiatus. Because yes... I'm JEALOUS AND GRUMPY BECAUSE I CAN'T RUN, AND MY FOOT HURTS. AND YES I HAVE A BAD ATTITUDE ABOUT IT AT THIS MOMENT. Sigh. That felt good. I'm glad you all aren't hurt, and maybe I just need a few more days to cry and whine before I can be happy for you and your races and your running.

Or maybe I just need someone to tell me what the heck is really wrong with my foot so I know what I'm dealing with. All I got today was a, well your bones look really strong and thick and healthy (which is AWESOME news). I didn't get to see my regular doctor today... I'll spare you my frustrations. However my PT, after talking to him this morning, made me feel a bit better.

Now watch out world, my crutches and I are on a mission... where are my Nutter Butters....

I swear nothing more frustrating that not knowing what the issue is! Hope they identify the cause and things will keep cropping up if not :-(

Fine leave whatever you are grumpy anyway....who needs you...UGH!! JK please don't go...

I bet you just need some ice cream, you know for the calcium...send Edder out for some...LOL.

Hang in there...I HOPE you figure out what is wrong soon.. Need to see some pretty running photos of FWR..

You're allowed to have your moments. There's no easy way to say: it sucks. Good news that it's not a fracture! I hope the hiatus is brief. In the mean time, have fun with your glowing self!

We've all been there. Give yourself today to wallow in the sadness and come back better tomorrow. :o)

Sorry that you are injured still, glad its not a fracture and I hope you are up and running again soon!

The grumpiness is totally understandable.

Hope they figure out what it is and can get you fixed up soon.

Morgan said...

One step at a time girl... just be thankful it was a fracture after all!!!!

teacherwoman said...

Your foot issues sound like my knee issues. Grr. How frustrating. hope it gets figured out...

J said...

Aww I hope things get better for you. I know how you feel about not running. Just give it time and you will be back to running soon.

I'm with Mel...ice cream it up!

Aw, chica . . . I'm so sorry. I know this won't actually help, but I've totally been there. Last year I tore some sh*t up in my knee, and then literally one week after I started getting back into running again, I fell down the damn stairs and destroyed the entire left side of my body. Then, since that still wasn't enough, I immediately thereafter got a crazy case of pneumonia/bronchitis grossness that went on for 3+ months. It was THE PITS.

I really hope you figure out what is wrong soon, and in the meantime, just make Edder wait on you hand and foot! Hehe, might as well make the best of the situation, right? Hang in there, girl!

Irene said...

So that's what all the light is about! LOL. I'm glad you're OK.

Just curious, did they ever do an MRI?

PS...
Throwing stuff is really good therapy. Water balloons are especially good because they splat. Darts is another option. When I was out of commission for several months I threw the ball and a Frisbee to the dog until she she couldn't go any more!

Be well!
