Right back at you, Badger, ruthbru and all you wonderful women!
Baby Grace continues to spike a bit of a fever at night and get super fussy. We all hope that goes away soon. My son said he now feels like he has the worst cold in the world but his blood sugar continues to remain only slightly high (he has *excellent* control). My daughter-in-law said she can't entirely tell if she's got symptoms or is just that exhausted. I'm hoping for the exhaustion.
I got a reply from the super duper specialist about the x-ray results--I'd started to hope I could avoid surgery and now it sounds like it still may be on the table. This is what his nurse sent back in response to my question about which test was gospel, the MRI or the x-ray take a week or so later:
I spoke with Dr. R and he said the x-ray is what gives us the most up to date information. So I would say the Xray is gospel! He said basically you are producing a band of sclerosis in that area which is your body's way of trying to heal the stress fracture. He said that this could be an area of what is called hyperostotic non-union or is an area of bone formation in the face of a non-union. He explained that typically those situation do go on to heal but they may require surgical intervention. He encourages you to keep your appointment with the foot specialist.
So this morning I thought screw it and I ran 5k. Because maybe it's healing? It hurts so OK maybe that wasn't the best idea I've ever had but otherwise it felt so good to run. The appointment w/ the foot/ankle doctor is in one week and I'm looking forward to what he recommends as the best path to return me to running competitively as quickly as possible (with the best healing outcome, tired of breaking myself).
Tried the tamoxifen, no thanks.
