Update on Michael

     Yesterday we went for Michael's follow up  appointment from his hospitalization. Thankfully that problem seems to be a "one-time-only" thing and is totally healed and good as new!
     This morning we went to the doctor about his foot and found out encouraging and discouraging news. The break is so small it can hardly be seen  but the sprang is really bad, and that is what's causing most of the pain and swelling. They put him in a walking boot so he is getting around on that at the moment with the help of a cane. He is very happy to be able to be doing more things for himself and to his hands free as well. :)
     He will be in the boot for anywhere from 2-4 weeks, then it will be a small brace that will support either side of his heal, but he will have full foot function at this time.   
     He can not drive with the brace [and it is also illegal to try] so that means he can not work because he drives for a living...So... we shall see how the next couple weeks unfold. So far the Lord has been taking care of us and I know He will continue to do so!

Well, this news certainly carries mixed blessings. It would be good news all around if Michael did not drive for a living. I hope his company can find something else for him to do until he can drive again.
