…and now this…too perfect….

SO!  This will be my summer of love and attention with Gerry because I thankfully was able to save enough that I didn’t have to work this summer off from teaching.  Summer of love and walking and outdoor activities, and what not….but, THIS was not what I planned…

Thankfully it was my left leg, and nothing is broken, merely sprained.  (“Merely a flesh wound” via Monty Python) I have the spirit of a 12 year old (and the body of an almost 49 year old) and was running out of the house with Gerry for some fun, and slipped on my step/turn going down to the next step, and that it was it.  An easy enough sprain to do, and have actually done before.

My podiatrist should be on my speed dial.  I had bunion surgery in the summer of 2010, thanks to paternal genetics and excruciating pain.  The moral of that story is:  Bunion surgery is NOT always a bad thing.  I had to delay my dog adoption for an extra summer due to it.  Although it originally broke my heart; it brought me GERRY!  Three years in my house alone and he was thought to be three years old, and so we truly rescued each other.

After that original surgery I sprained the SAME foot the day after Memorial Day, and missed my first field day @ school.  Gerry was with me for that, and we managed, as we will this time.


About danielle

I am a rescue mom and school teacher. Gerry came to me from Texas, after he "failed" as a hunting dog. He had NOT had an easy life. I was three years divorced, and we saved each other. Last week I learned he has osteosarcoma. Our world feels upside down...while everyone else is right side up.

    Oh no! Sorry about that but you have a great buddy to recover with. And hey, I’m right there with you…my 48 year old body is stunned at times that it can’t always keep up with the 12 year old spirit! I remember, “it’s merely a flesh wound!” Classic!

    Glad everyone is doing ok otherwise! Give Gerry a hug from us and maybe kick back and watch some old Monty episodes!

    Aw, bummer! We had something similar happen – Tai’s amp was in October of 2016, I hurt my left knee in December 2016 and had surgery in March 2017! So we spent some time hopping around together. Needless to say, Tai got around a lot better than I did.

    Elevate and rest!

    Ohhh that’s awful! I hope you feel better quickly! Don’t these injuries always seem to happen together? Glad you have Gerry to keep you company and empathize.
