I thought I’d be walking better a week after my kick in the shins. Instead, I’m still down and out …
Monday, I thought I’d be swift, and so I was doing some housework. I knew I wasn’t really supposed to be on my leg, but come on … what Mama can sit still? And, have you ever noticed that when you sit down, there are 418 things staring at you, just begging you to do them?
I got up and started cleaning the army men out from under the tv cabinet. As I stood up with a hand full of tiny green soldiers, I twisted, and sharp pains shot through my leg. I hobbled to the kitchen, gave Samoo his AWOL soldiers, and I started wiping down cabinets. As I turned to put something in the fridge, I realized this pain was not getting any better. I sat on the couch most of the day Tuesday and Wednesday, but still not any better.
I talked to the ladies at the orthopedist’s office and they said….. FOLLOW DOCTOR’S ORDERS! Use the crutches – No ifs, ands, or buts – elevate it, and stay off of it completely until I see my orthopedist on Monday.
This is really frustrating for me, but I know there is a bigger plan ahead of this. I don’t know what, but I do know that God’s plan for my success is bigger than the enemy’s plan for me to fail. So, I will see my trainer tomorrow for some upper body stuff, stay off of my leg a few more days, and see the doctor on Monday.
