Grandma and Grandpa both had doctor appointments today. Grandma has been having pain in her foot again for the last few weeks--same foot as before. I finally talked her in to going to her Doc to have it checked. They X-rayed it and found it was a stress fracture but this time it's not a hairline one--it's a very visable, clear fracture. She is supposed to stay off it as much as possible. Although, I"m not sure how she is really going to do that. I suggested crutches but she said she doesn't do them well at all--so, I guess we are just going to have to keep her down somehow. Her doc is having her see a podiatrist in about ten days to take a better look at it to see if anything else needs to be done. Grandpa's appointment was with his Parkinson's specialist. This doctor came very highly recommended and we really like him a lot.This appointment was just a follow-up to Dad's last one and he got great news. His doc thought he was doing really well. We always like to get those kind of reports. I watched one of my neighbor's kids who wasn't feeling well today and couldn't go to school. Her mom is a teacher and just needed somewhere she could stay for the day. I made a bed for her on the couch and she and the kids watched movies all day. I think they all enjoyed it--even the sickee. (Although, I've seen enough movies for an entire month!) Well, better get myself to bed. Gonna be a busy day tomorrow.
