Prayers Appreciated!

Well, I've gone for my follow-up appointment at the doctor's office! I'm cleared to go back to work tomorrow (Thursday), but my doctor has set specific orders that I'm to limit anything that affects my left hand (like typing) or my left ankle (like walking or standing for long periods of time).

Since my job is primarily spent in front of my PC, I'm not sure how all this is going to affect me. Mom's going to drop me off at work, and Brett will pick me up when he gets off work. We'll experiment to see how all this will go. It may be a while before I can drive anywhere by myself.

This lack of independence is driving me a little bonkers, as is Brett's new nickname for me - "Hop-a-long."

The doctor told me 6 weeks is normal for motor vehicle-related injuries. SIX WEEKS!!! She also prescribed MORE drugs - muscle relaxers this time - and more ice. Also, I learned my left handed ring finger is fractured and now has to be taped! Sheesh!

Your continued prayers are MOST appreciated!

That is funny, since they had to cut my shirt off, and I was like, "Sorry I don't have a fancier bra on." And the EMS guy said, "At least you have one on!" Apparently, they have a lot of women who don't wear one! I'm so glad I do!

Hi Ann-Marie...so glad you're all right, although recovery is a bummer. I meant to comment on your earlier post, and didn't have the time, but I am so thankful you survived!

I'm chuckling over your comment to the EMS guy! :)

That is funny. I guess that since the exposure had to be done and it is part of their job, you might as well laugh about it.
