Six weeks ago, I broke my foot. It has not been easy to say the least. Three weeks ago, an x-ray showed that my foot had not healed and, in fact, and broken a bit more. I felt devastated that day.
The doctor ordered me to not step on my foot (even in a walking cast). I didn’t know what to do — how would I even get to the restroom or in the shower on one foot? I can’t do crutches, I need to buy a knee scooter! Thank goodness I already have a shower chair. How would I feed my family? How much more time can my husband take off work to care for me and our 2 year old? How would I take care of my house? How would my kids get to school? I was going to be totally dependent on others for a while to come.
