I have a doc appt. tomorrow with my ortho. for my foot/ankle. Yippy. I was going to go when I hurt it like 3 weeks ago, then decided not to go. Last weekend I finally said I would...but have been regretting it...but, I suppose Im going to go. I think I have an ankle impingement. So, we'll see how it goes... just letting you guys know, and will let you know how it goes tomorrow.

I'm glad you decided to go. You need to find out what is causing the discomfort so it can be taken care of properly.  That will be better, all the way around, for your foot.  Be sure to let us know how the appointment goes!

You go girl. I had a knee injury last winter and didn't get it looked at in time. Then I reinjured it several times, just walking, it would flip backwards, like my knee was pointing behind me. I went to emerg. One doc said (like he always does, take ibuprophen and keep it elavated, and iced). I don't do ice well at all due to arthritis. Another doc said ÿou're going to need a $800 knee brace, I ran out of there knee pointing backwards and all. Finally, I saw my GP who said "ÿou have absolutely no pain tolerance whatsoever, sometimes a sprained knee is just a sprained knee," and he lectured me for about forty minutes for seeing the other docs because he is the one doc who treats Fibro, and somehow it's hush hush in the doctor world to do so. He's generally very good so I just let him vent, cried a little and left with the prescription I'd come for.

You get satisfaction or ask for a second opinion. if they indicate you're overreacting, ask for a second opinion. And if they bully you, you tell us, we're on your side.

I still have problems with that knee wanting to go the wrong way, but only occasionally.

Diagnosis: not really sure! haha

I think he put "ankle spur" on the form... But, I have to go to PT for 2 weeks...then go back to him.

Im not so sure... PT never helps me, only hurts me! I really didnt think too much about it until AFTER I had left his office... I figure I will give PT a session or two and see how I feel...

But, thats what he said. Basically, as if we didnt know, my ankle bent back too far and the bones probably hit... but, whatever! lol He cracks me up, all doctors have that affect on me! tongue

So, anyways, I am babysitting...AGAIN. He has been with me for 2 whole days...yea, I know... But, I love taking care of him. He's a sweetheart. I best be going. I will keep you guys updated...

Hi Christi,

At least it isn't something to worry about. Try the PT and see how it goes, maybe they can show you some things that you can do at home and you wont have to go much.

I hope that you are having a wonderful day. Thanks for letting us know what is going on.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Christi,

It is me again. When you talk about baby sitting and something that you said the other day in an email. It reminded me of the first time that my granddaughter called me grandma.

I thank you for that.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Hi, Tennis!  Welcome to the world of modern medicine!  devil    The doctors never know what is causing the stuff I get either!  But, at least it isn't broken and you don't need surgery.  That's good news.  Just be careful with it...no marathon races or soccer for you!  turn    Enjoy your time with the little one.

Well, I start PT today, in about 3 hours from now... Right now I am waiting to go to lunch! haha

Well, Im glad I reminded you of that Karen, its a REALLY special thing. He called me mama and I was shocked, but at the same time I LOVED it! haha I want kids of my own, I LOVE little kids and especially babies. He ended up spending 3 days and 2 nights with me. I took care of him 24-7 and we played and watched a bunch of educational stuff. He is SOOOooo SMART! He can already count ot 11! He just turned 2 in Sept! Im so proud of him just like a mommy! tongue

To be honest, his "real" mommy isnt the mother-of-the-year. Thats bad because she is my friend and we grew up together. But, she is irresponsible. Sorry. But, thats the truth. She has had TONS of jobs and for some reason NONE of them EVER work out. If he was my baby, I would be working my butt off at more than one job to be able to provide for him, pay for bills, and take care of things...but shes the opposite. It really upsets me.. Im really responsible and (may I say) grown-up. When he is with me, he is my #1 priority. He does stuff sometimes and she seems so angry with him... I just have the understanding that he's a kid and things happens, not to be angry with him. So, it REALLY bothers me alot. Thats why I prefer taking care of him myself, regardless if he's my responsibility or not. I care really good care of him. I feel like she maybe pushes him aside and maybe puts on a movie or something... I dont know..

So, everyone always asks, "why do you keep him so much?" #1. I love him. #2 I love being with him and taking good care of him. #3 We have SO much fun together! #4 I dont mind keeping him because he is no trouble. #5 Because I actually prefer him being with me... Thats such a horrible thing ot say about my friend...but its the truth and everyone around knows it. There were 2 nights I kept him and told her he was staying with me because I knew she went to a club with friends and she gets drunk so(btw she just turned 22)... In my book, thats not very responsible when you have a child to care for.....

So, anyways, thats the story!! haha Point: I just love him in general and I would do anything to make sure he is okay and taken good care of! He is SOOooo sweet, and handesome, and smart, and well mannered! So... Im his 2nd mommy now! He calls MY mom Nana!!! hahahahaha He's SO smart it blows my mind. He is so much smarter than I was, my brothers or sisters, my neice, any kid I have met at that age. Im so proud of him!

Its funny because all of my friends think its so sweet and they "awww" when I talk about him because of the WAY I talk about him...like he's my own. And, honestly, I think of him that way. So... yea

Sorry about that! Im so bored...Im in the library at school waiting for school to be over so I can go to PT. Yippy. Not looking forward to it really....Im not sure... hmm...guess it doesnt matter since I have to go regardless... Anyways...thanks so much!

Christi,
 
I am so happy that you have something positive to focus on.  That little boy is lucky to have you.  I know what you mean when you say you have so much fun together.  OMG-kid's toys are so cool these days!  I love shopping for kids, cause that means I get to play with the stuff, too!  Also, you can never get tired of games like Candy Land and Chutes & Ladders, LOL.  Hey, I've always said that I'm just a big kid! tongue
 
It sucks that his mom is out getting drunk.  I just don't understand why people have kids and then dump on other people so they can go out and party.  My mom's best friend (the one I really don't like, but that's beside the point) has a son who always leaves his 2 little boys with her.  Why do people even have kids if they aren't gonna take care of them?  Sorry, I probably have no right to have an opinion considering the fact that I don't have children, but this still p*sses me off. mad   OK, I'll get off my soapbox, now.
 
Anyway, it's great to hear that things are going so well for you.  Remember that I'm always here for you if you need me, Kid. smilewinkgrin
