News...Not So Good

The title says it all. The news from the doctor was not so good.

The bone stimulation machine is working but very, very slowly.

The verdict: eight more weeks on crutches and to continue using the bone stimulation machine.

*The boy* will be buying his plane ticket to spend 6 weeks of that time back home in Rhode Island.

It was not the news we wanted to hear but we are trying to look at the upside. He gets to spend time with family and be coddled by the mom. I get some time to myself and a little space back from the constant togetherness I was so not ready for. Plus, I have a reason to see what Rhode Island is all about. I've never been to the East Coast before so this will be my first taste of it. If anyone has some cool needlework shop recommendations around Rhode Island, Massachusetts or New York, let me know! I'll be going to visit sometime next month.

If things have not healed at the end of these eight weeks...surgery...and it all starts over again. Yea...not so good.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and sending your good thoughts my way. We both appreciate whatever good mojo people have to offer. Lots of hugs to everybody!

I'll probably be offline for the next few days...to you know...let it all sink in. Despite resigning myself to this before the appointment, it's all just a little sad.

Until next time...

I'm so sorry. :(

I don't know about shops in MA or RI. I'm a CT gal.

Do hit the shore and get some lobster. I hear right now due to the economy it's dead cheap, and it's always cheaper on the dock anyway.

Oh Valerie, I'm sorry the news is not good. At least you can see the positives in this, even though it's not what you wanted.

This must be just so frustrating!

I hope you do have a great adventure on the east coast!

I did visit a great LNS in RI once, it was huge but I don't remmeber what its called!

If I recall correctly there's quite a few in the suburb areas around Boston... unless they're closed now, it ws 7 years ago.

So sorry to hear not-so-good news. I've been following the story but haven't commented. On the up side, Rhode Island is a wonderful place. There used to be a great antique store in Tiverton Four Corners. Also on the up side, you'll love your time to yourself!

Cheryl said...

Thats such a shame. Sorry to hear this. Hopefully the time will pass quickly for you both

I am sorry to hear the news and will send positive thoughts your way as you (and *the boy*) go through this. RI is beautiful...if I remember correctly it has some "old world/colonial" feel which is very different than here. Take advantage of good sight seeing and food while there!!
