Sad but Swimming...

There are many things about my recent injury that have been miserable but Wednesday I went to the Doctor for my weekly update and got a great report and a great prescription!  The doctor said that all was looking good and for me to start trying to put some weight on my leg/foot.  He said that I needed to get in a pool up to about my chest and walk laps.  It's harder than it sounds espically because my foot has been in one position for 3 weeks without movement or weight put on it.  I am such a lover of the sun and summer.  It has been killing me to be inside laid up but now I am FREE!!!!  I made TJ take me that very afternoon to the pool and I tried out the walking.  After about 30 minutes I was exhausted.  I was like a kid though; I didn't want to get out.  He had to make me!!!  ha ha!

I can tell that it's getting better day by day and hope to be back to normal very soon.  I still don't know why God gave me this injury and will admit I'm still bitter.  TJ and I would be packing today and headed to Disney World and Universal Studios tomorrow.  We had a Deep Sea Fishing trip lined up also for tomorrow morning.  I am just sick about it.  No matter how much better I feel I can't help but be sad that TJ and I didn't get to take this vacation.  TJ will turn 30 on Saturday the 26th and I just don't know what to do to make it up to him.  He says that he doesn't care and he probably doesn't but I do!  We will still get to go eventually but it just won't be the same without a reason to celebrate. 

I will look forward to our trip to New York in December and hope with all my heart that God will allow us to take that trip! TJ and I have never been and are looking forward to seeing the big apple during Christmas time. I guess one thing good came out of us not taking our vacation this summer...we'll have more money for New York!!!
