Not What We Thought

Thursday night while at the Tulsa Blogger Meetup B and I received a call from The Hubby that A had taken a spill at her rock climbing place and hurt her foot.  She was told it was a severe sprain but she was concerned that it was worse.

Unfortunately she was in the process of changing her health insurance over and had canceled one but not started the other...(Slap head here!)

The Hubby told her NOT to take the ambulance but have someone else take here to the emergency room. 
Yesterday she went to some kind of a foot/orthopedic doc and they did another x-ray.  Low and behold there was a break.
This is her right foot, her driving foot.  This will put a a hamper on her work as she drives to students homes and teaches piano.  I think she will, after a couple of weeks, be able to take the boot off and drive to and fro.  She is terrified that the Tears For Fears tour to Austrialia and other may be out of the question for her but since it is April I think she will be able to go.  Poor kiddo.  Now we are in the process of beginning the new health insurance.  Too bad this won't be covered but we will get by.  It is an expensive lesson I must say but it is life, live and learn.  Frankly I'm tired of The Hubby saying things like "I told you so."  He is driving me crazy with this stuff but it is what it is and can't be changed.  Life goes on, day by day.  She will heal and in 6 months will be back on to life as she knows it and so will I.

Oh good lawd that looks painful!

I think back to the days I had no insurance and how lucky I was nothing happened. Scary!

Hope she's on the mend soon...

Oh, man! We live and learn the hard way, don't we? Hope she's a quick healer.

I'm so sorry to hear there was a break and not just a sprain. Poor girl.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. While climbing? That's usually safer than it sounds. Has she broken bones before? Does she climb off of 21st and Garnett? I hope it heals quicker than expected. Don't fuss at daddy too much - they worry about their girls and cover up their fear with bluster.

I've never had a broken bone and that photo makes my stomach lurch just to think about how badly that must have HURT!! Since she's young she'll probably heal quickly. Sure hope they gave her some good pain meds which are keeping her pain free. Egads!!

Oh deary me, that's not good and I wish her well in time for the tour (which by the way, how proud must you be!). And yes hubby's comments would drive me mad too!
