In the mode of 2 steps forward and 1 step back – we got good news from the MRI – no broken bones or torn ligaments. With the LisFranc injuries even a minor injury can be serious – add to that serious bone bruises (which I hadn’t even heard of before) makes for serious pain.
So now we are still on codeine and that makes functioning really difficult. So now we are day 3 of just being down. I wish she could just catch a break – we were told no horse backriding and no volleyball – no weight bearing for another 2 weeks. I can’t believe I am saying this but I would give anything to be back to our level of normal. No school on monday’s making the rest of the week – swinging and sleeping!!
I know in a year we’ll look back on this and realize it was all just a distant memory but right now it feels like a nightmare! POTS kids don’t take bumps in the road like other kids and minor bumps mean major flairs. We just need to get over this hill and hopefully things will get better. Until then we’ll work on the just maintaining the day to day….
