On Monday I said it would be a week of challenges and boy was I right! I am home and feeling much better, but lets go back to Monday.
After dropping the doggies off at the kennel, we headed to Denver. But first a little guy was walking down the road.
When I got out of the car, he walked right up to me long enough for me to pat him and then off he went – to wherever he was headed.
We stayed at a very nice Hilton in Denver and also made a trip to the Apple store. I love that place!!
Then Tuesday morning we left for Vail. Such beautiful country.
Once we got to Vail we had a busy day. First an MRI of my hand that was to be operated on. Then a lunch downstairs in the hospital cafeteria.
Then in the afternoon I had an appointment with a great Dr. – Dr Clanton – for my foot. An x-ray later and lots of questions and discussions, he informed me it was NOT Plantar Fasciitis. I had injuried a ”section” of my heel. He described the heel as several sections seperated by a thin membrane (made me imagine a grapefruit). The answer for healing was cushioning. So no more $400 orthotics – they actually aggravated the problem. He also recommended a new shoe for running : Hoka Ones.
I’ll let you know later how they are.
Then it was time to contact my brother-in-law. After all, we were staying at his and my sister’s house. So I sent him a text.
Oh Stew, you are so funny! So I responded:
What a comedian. My answer:
WHAT??? Oh my God what have I done? I immediately checked my contacts, and sure enough I had typed in the wrong area code.
Turns out John lives in Alaska………
and has a good sense of humor.
One step at a time….even if it might be in the wrong direction sometimes.
