Great Dane puppy Dude sitting on our Great Pyreneese Lance... that concrete's awful cold, don't 'cha know....
Still on crutches and not much better, it seems. From what I have read, femoral neck stress fractures (a stress fracture in the upper part of the femur~ the "neck" where it is narrow just before the "ball" part of the hip joint) can be notoriously slow to heal. Of course the fact that I get impatient and ditch the crutches every week or so probably isn't helping. : )
Isn't Lance patient and accommodating?
I"m going back in to see my orthopedic doctor this Thursday, so I should have some additional info then. Looks like my options right now are crutches for at least 3 more weeks, or surgery to "pin" the femur.
I'm fine though... using the extra sitting down time to get some things learned on my new iMac (love iPhoto~ so cool for photo organization, and Bridge for organizing digital scrapbooking stuff). Plus we're thick into school this year~ nine currently "officially" in school. So I'm far from bored... just super-antsy from all this inactive sitting and "crutching around."
Thanks again for your concern and prayers, I really do appreciate it!
