Release date for Saje and I fractured my ankle.

Yes. I have exciting news, and crappy news:

Saje will be released on April 8th, 2009, scarlet line. (wilderroses) Whoot.

On to crappy news:

I fractured my ankle a little over a week ago while doing cardio on the treadmill at the gym, and I just found out this past friday. I finally went to the ER because my foot was getting no better after home treatment. I thought I'd just pulled a muscle. So, I go to the ortho doctor on Wednesday. I had to postpone it til then because I have an oncology appt on Monday and I don't want to miss that. Its a check up for the cancer. Anyways, it looks like I'll be in a cast or boot for several weeks. I really don't know much until I go see the ortho doc. I think I have a Navicular stress fracture and from what I gather, its several weeks no wait bearing, then several weeks with weight bearing.

And I've been walking around on it for a week already. I'm trying to stay off of it this weekend, but its impossible to do so at work. I have a high tolerance for pain so it doesn't slow me down that much. It's going to be a hassle big time if I can't weight bear after wednesday. My body's already sore and I suffer with neuropathy since the cancer treatment. So I can't imagine walking around on crutches.

Anyways, I'll deal with it when the time comes.

And last but not least, I'm one of the authors that will be in a contest that runs from March 15th-April 1st. Join the fun and enter to win great prizes. Check it out:

Take care ya'll,

thanks Jen. I went to the ortho doc and he doesn't think its fractured, but the er doc thought it was. So I'm in an air boot for 3 weeks and if its no better, the ortho doc is going to start doing tests on my foot to find out if it is fractured.
I went to the gym and worked out but I can't do cardio with my foot. That does suck, but I'm doing upper body. Yeah.
