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...
