Adjusting

Filed under: About Me, Boring — sashyjane @ 5:49 pm

It hasn’t even been a week since the car accident but life has drastically changed.  For the time being, I’m living with my parents, showering in a plastic folding chair, carrying cans of ginger ale in my waistband and depending entirely on the kindness of friends and family members for transportation and meals.

Normally I would never go out in public without my make up on and a half-way decent outfit. However, last night I left the house, thanks to my friend Sarah, looking like I’d just been picked up from the group home. I still haven’t figured out how I’m going to get to and from work each day and I have no idea what I’m going to wear when I do go back. I’ve gotten a little better at my crutches but after a pain pill, I’m still pretty wobbly.

I had a CT scan this morning to determine whether or not I’ll need surgery to fix my heel bone.  The scan itself was no sweat but getting inside the outpatient center and up to the second floor was a different story. The woman (I don’ t know if she was a nurse or CT tech or what) who administered the scan told me that there’s a waterproof cast on the market called Gore-Tex.  I sure wish I’d known that on Tuesday! Maybe when I visit the Orthopedist on Tuesday, he’ll swap my cast out for one of those.  Suiting up with rubber bands, a Bed, Bath & Beyond bag and a Hefty bag every time I’d like to shower is getting old.

I’d like to apologize for the lack of interesting posts.  Maybe once the pain subsides and I stop taking my meds, I’ll be a little more lucid and able to post about pretty or fun things.

  1. SJ! I had no idea all this was going on. When I had the knee surgery, I had to sit on the side of the tub and lower myself in so I took baths for 6 weeks instead of showers. I don’t know if there is a tub at your mom’s to accomodate, but if there is it’s worth a try. Tell Rob you can work from home if he buys you a fancy new computer! :)

  2. Throw away those crutches! Some lawyer called today with a great proposition. He’ll arrange to give you a free Hoveround! In exchange all you have to do is “hoveround” the Augusta Exchange shopping center parking lot wearing a sandwich board saying, “One call, that’s all!” He’ll even throw in a free trip to the Grand Canyon to seal the deal. I gave him your cell number.

  3. Hey Sarah!

    I don’t know when you’re going back to work, but I’m not working today, tomorrow or Wednesday, so I can give you a ride any/all of those days. really! I don’t mind. Or if you want a lift to Bible study on Wednesday night. Just send me a msg on fb. Depending on your schedule next week, I might be able to help then, too.

    Feel better!
