Cultural - Another doctor's visit
Today my husband and I went to see the doctor again - this time for a follow up visit and another x ray.
The x ray said he could take off the cast, but still absolutely NO WEIGHT on the leg. He will use the brace that he has had but a minimum of 3 weeks of no weight bearing on that leg. So, yes, I will continue to be the go-fer for him - he can't drive yet.
Here's a summary of our visit -
First, we drove there (he can't drive because our vehicles are standard transmission) - so I drove up to the hospital, dropped him off, and then went to park the vehicle.
We went in to see the doctor, where he wrote us an order for an xray. Then, while my husband got the x ray, I waited in the waiting area, checking out Facebook and reading a couple of articles.
Then, after the x ray we saw the doctor again. He gave the okay for the cast to come off. Mike didn't want them to do it though since he said he could take it off quite easily and didn't want to pay the $70 or $80 they would charge to do it.
So, we stopped and ate on the way home at at McDonalds which is on the way home. We got this particular McD's 2-3 years ago and it is wonderful to have a fast food restaurant on the way to and from Warsaw. Once I had fed the dog, shut the gate, locked the doors, found the saw and brought it to Mike he was able to take the cast off. It didn't take long and was perfectly safe.
So now it's sitting in the trash. Looks kind of funny doesn't it?
And that's my big news from today!
Don't forget if you need something from my sis's store. She'd love for you to order everything she has so she doesn't have to move it! (She's moving from one location to another - it's only 2 doors down so it's not like she's moving a mile away.)
