Well, as many of you know, I have been having allergic reactions to the stainless steel that was placed in my ankle to repair it after it broke. It has been since March 30th that I have been dealing with this, frustrating to say the least! When I approached my doctor about the issue, he adamantly told me that the metal can not be taken out till it has had time to "mature" 6 months. Well, it was 6 months at the end of September and I have not been back to the doctor yet.....
So, why am I procrastinating about this so much??? For one thing money has been tight here and every time I have the $50 copay to go in something else comes up! At least that was my excuse for a while :) Now I do have the money to go in, but other things keep coming up. My little one has been feeling sick and the thought of going in for surgery when he needs me makes me feel selfish.
Another issue is that my doctor is not all that sensitive.....he is down right insensitive and doesn't spend much time listening. I would consider going to another doctor, but know from previous experiences that other doctors usually don't want to deal with taking out what someone else has put in. And, I honestly have to admit that I am not looking forward to being cut on again!! Surgery sucks big time!!
Anyway, all of that just to say that I am making my appointment today and am not going to procrastinate about it any more!!! If I do have the surgery soon, I will most likely have to put my shop on vacation mode for a little bit. Last time I was able to keep it open and use a wheelchair to fill my orders. Since then I have moved and now have stairs, which would make it impossible to stay open. I will be closing shop until I am able to walk up and down the stairs again! So if you need anything from my shop, stock up now!! LOL!
Prayers are much appreciated!! This year has been SO hard!! Thank you and may Jesus smile on you today!!
