I Broke My Foot

Dear Friends

    I had to get a MRI done on my Left Foot on Monday.  Early Yesterday Morning I got a call from my family doctor's office.  Come to find out I broke my Left Foot - I have a Stress Fracture and I don't know how bad it is just yet. 

    He is sending me to a Orthopaedic Surgeon due to my bone condition that I have and so I will either be wearing The Boot or a Cast on my Foot for a good Six Weeks.  I wanted my Orthopaedic Surgeon that I had for my Leg cause he saved my right leg when I broke it in 5 different places and he is really good and I really liked him.  Him and I joked around a lot when I went to his office for my check up.  He is now doing Sports Medicine.  I have a new Orthopaedic Surgeon now and he is affiliated with all of Parkview Hospitals so that is good cause my family doctor and all of my other doctors are affiliated with Parkview Hospitals.  I love Parkview Hospital - I have been in both of them and they have treated me with excellent care.  I go to my new Orthopaedic Surgeon this coming Monday and I am sure that he is just as good as my other one was. 

In the meantime I am trying to stay off of my feet as much as possible.  Tomorrow I won't be able to do that because I have to pay my bills and go to Walmart and to Radio Shack and to the Post Office and to the Telephone Office.  I am going to try to get that done early in the morning so I can get back home and stay put and stay off of my feet for the rest of the day. 

I have been stitching a lot on Autumn Splendor.  I want to get this done so this is the only one that I have been working on for right now.  I am still doing the leaves at the top of the picture.  I am also working on the bottom as well too.  I love stitching on this but the leaves are very slow going. 

Thanks for all of your comments...

I am not going to show the picture of me when I was 3 years old - not until I get started with stitching this one which won't be until August since I am going to go to House Of Stitches in LaPorte to get my material. This has white, light blue, shades of brown and gold and grays so I don't know what color of material would go with this unless I do a Off White like Ecru or something like that.  I need to write down the colors and send it to House Of Stitches and let them pick out the material for it.  I just may do that.  That way I won't need to wait til August. 

I have another photo that I turn into a pattern and next week I will be ordering the material from House Of Stitches and get started on it.  The material that I am going to get is going to be 28 Count Lugana and its going to be white.

The Sun is Shining and I have the inside Patio Door open so Railroad can get some fresh air through the Screen as well as me. 

I am going to be stitching the rest of the day on Autumn Splendor. 

Have a Beautiful Day

God Bless You
Love & Prayers
