Today I was called by the doctor that I was going to see on Friday. They told me that they got the x-rays the previous doctor had sent over and they wanted to see me ASAP. Apparently, I had received terrible care from the last doctor (who wasn't covered by my insurance anyway!) and now I need to get a cast right away. When the last doctor saw me they took x-rays and once he found out that my insurance wasn't compatible I never saw him again. The nurse told me the walking boot would have cost me $450 out of pocket so I should just buy one off Amazon for $60. They sent me home with no support or medication. I was left in a ace bandage wrap I could've purchased from a drugstore. I waited for three days for the walking boot to arrive in the mail and when I finally put it on, it was SO painful. I loaded up on ibuprofen but not much helped. This new doctor, that IS covered by my insurance, said that my bones needed to be realigned and casted and that is why the damn boot is so painful! So tomorrow I will be going in at 9am to fixed up for the time being. I am frustrated because this means that I am stuck in the house on the couch for even longer. I don't want to let it get me down, but I guess I should explain....
I live on my parents 5 acre farm with my husband in a trailer while we save up for our own home. We are very happy with our little home and living simply, but I'll make a post on that later. The reason why I mention this is because I broke my ankle by falling down the trailer stairs. Now I cannot get back into the trailer while being on crutches and especially if I am going to be in a cast. This has led me to be stuck on the couch in my parents house. I am very appreciative that I am in a space where I am surrounded by family and don't have to navigate stairs, but I miss my own bed with my cats and husband. Caleb (husband) told me that he would bring the cats in the house on harnesses so that I could still spend time with them because I miss them so much. I look forward to this very much!
My goals for the next couple months are these: maintain a positive outlook, find ways to exercise in a cast, eat healthy, invest more time into art, continue to work on @thewondercatcrew and blog, have faith, catch up on all my superhero shows on Netflix, budget better, don't spend too much money on Christmas ornaments and be the best wife I can be.
