My Results Are In!

I'm jumping for joy!

At peace!

So thankful to everyone who prayed for good results and for God who has bigger plans for me!

Yippee! My pathology came back and they are confident it was not a tumor but just immense trauma done to my tendons. My doctor was very surprised because going back to the MRI she still says it looks like a tumor. Somehow I just did a number on my ankle. We are over the moon with happiness and so relieved. It has been a very long week waiting for the results and trying to ignore the what ifs of where my mind was drifting too!

After I got the results of pathology I was sent to ultrasound to make sure I didn't have a blood clot. All was clear on that end, so on to Orthopedics for my cast. I had to position my foot into a 90 degree angle and let me tell you how awful that was. My incision is HUGE! I will spare you details and pictures. Let me say that this non weight bearing thing is not easy. Each time I get up my foot turns purple. They say it is normal because of all the swelling and the tingling in my toes will eventually pass. You all know how it feels when you foot falls asleep, right? Well try having your foot in a constant state of asleep, it's not fun!

My sister Amy has been amazing! She has gone above and beyond what I could have ever expected anyone to do. I am so lucky to have her! She has had a very tough and emotional week herself though. She miscarried while being here. She was just newly pregnant and on Sunday night around 9:15 she started bleeding. Jim had just come home from working about 65 hours and immediately he called the ER to get a colleagues opinion and was told it would be a good idea to go to the ER. Amy was a little nervous to say the least about leaving the baby but I assured her since our Dad was in town (he had left to go back to the hotel) I'd keep trying to get a hold of him. In the meantime I said that if the baby woke up James would help out and bring her to me. It all worked out in the end. My dad came back and stayed until they got back around 1:30. Vivienne did happen to wake up once but my dad's friend Ginny was a lifesaver and gave her a bottle and she fell back asleep. James was so concerned about Vivienne waking up again, that he slept on the floor right next to the baby just in case!

I can't tell you enough how truly thankful and appreciative I am for all your kind words and prayers, during this trying time. We still have a long road to recovery but having you all be behind me has really helped keep me going.

I did get a bright pink cast, so I just need to download some pictures so you can all take a peak at how beautiful I am. Oh, and my husband was the first to sign my cast. He didn't write his name though, oh no he couldn't be that normal. He wrote on the bottom of my foot. It says, "Tell me I'm Hot!" So, every time I put my foot up, people can feel sorry for how bad I really look and tell me the opposite!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
