Well Vacation Didn’t Go Quite As Planned

March 23rd, 2016

Well my vacation didn’t go quite as planned. I rode in the car for 12 hours the first day with just 2 breaks without my foot up. Swelled a bit but nothing major. Rode for 6 hours more the next day. Foot swelled more but still nothing major. Hip and siatic nerve hurt and ached but the next night I took a Zquil and slept pretty good. Walked without the boot for most of the day and wasn’t too bad. The next day we went to Disney World. Rented a scooter and used it but to be honest people would run into me, around me, hit me with their bags and it helped but was frustrating. During the day I received some devastating news. My brother, who was in a serious car accident a year ago and had just gotten back to work and that I am the Power of Attorney for ) has Acute Myloid Leukemia. My brother -in-law had this 2 years ago and passed away within 6 days. I chose to return to the hotel and then went back to the park. I chose to walk without the boot and without crutches or scooter. Was SORE but with the crowds and everything it just was too complicated. Caught a flight home to be with my brother and again didn’t use my boot, crutches or scooter - they were in the back of my van and we forgot them. Walked through Tampa Airport, Indianapolis Airport and then around the hospital. Swelled a bit but not too bad but was stinging. Rested and now ready to head home. Currently sitting in the hospital with my brother. Keep him and me in your prayers!

    Crazykidsmom so sorry to hear of all your troubles. Prayers for you and your brother.

    If you can, try wrapping the ankle with an ace wrap. It should help some with the swelling and pain as you walk alot. It did me. It does get better but you still need to rest it.

    Thank you metonia and pozaicer! Finally got to sleep in my own bed last night and I have an adjustable bed so I elevated it. Helped a LOT! I will be wrappiing it. Forgot all my stuff in my van when I left and will need to go get one. Good idea. The nurse at the hospital told me that if I need an ice pack I can bring my rice and put it in a freezer in their lounge so when I’m there I can sit with it up. That should help! Thanks again and keep me informed how you are getting along.
