Ankle Update

Got an x-ray. JB looked at it. He thinks it looks good and that it is just a sprain! Praise the Lord! The radiologist will look at it later today (we don't have one on Base -- it's a doc in Italy that looks at them) but hopefully he will concur with JB, and I'll be back up and at 'em in a couple of days.

One slightly funny thing. JB dropped me off in the x-ray room and then hustled back upstairs to see a patient. After he left, the tech. doing the x-rays asked me if there was any chance that I was pregnant. "Yes, I said. "A very good chance. I'm very pregnant."

"Hmmmm," she said, obviously not sure how to proceed. "Well, does Dr. Kit. know that?"

I started laughing. "Well, I hope so. I'm his wife!"

She laughed too and then went to confer with Nick as he was the one who put the x-ray in. (Typically doctors don't order things for their own family. They ask a coworker to do it.) Nick and JB conferred and decided to proceed with the xray anyway since the Turkish orthopedic was out off town any-how.

X-ray done. And hopefully all is well. Please keep praying, but I am SOOOO relieved!

P.S. Radiology report back -- just a sprain!!! Hip, hip hurrah! Foot is already feeling slightly better. Sprains heal SOOOO fast. (I should know. I've had a bunch.) I'll be good as new in a week or so but the improvements will be fast! Yay!
