After a great Mother’s Day, i head off to work. Ray is playing on his computer, Jakie is eating, and Renee is good.
Spend the morning fighting with a customer’s database structures. Grab lunch at the teeter, and about five bites in get a call. Renee has twisted her ankle getting Jacob. It made a snapping sound, and it’s turning black and blue.
Lunch goes in the fridge, she calls her doc and her mom. I’m stuck in traffic at 2pm in Carrboro. I make it home by about 2. yeah, her foot looks a little painful, and she’s been walking on it, although gently. I’m furious about that, but don’t have time. I build her an ice pack, pack up the kids, get everyone into the car and off we go.
Drop Ray off with Renee’s mom. Get to the doctor. The to the XRay. Back to the doctor. No visible damage there. but the orthopedist wants to look to, so off we go at 4:55 for his office. 5:15 he fits her with an inflatable walking cast thing. Jacob is pretty good all day, and was happy during the longest wait – at the radiologist’s office.
It’s not broken, and she can walk on it, but it’s gonna be black and blue and hurt. No good drugs because she’s nursing.
So she’s OK, mostly, and the ‘Canes are kicking much ass. And we ate dinner at her parents’ house, so it’s been an OK day. Well, OK after 5pm, anyway….
