Update on the leg.

Saw the regular doctor today.  They took x-rays and there is a suspicious spot in the area where I am having the pain.  The next step is for the radiologist to officially read the x-rays and I have an appointment with an orthopedist on Monday to get the verdict.  The doctor did recommend that I stay off the leg altogether so I've got a prescription for crutches to fill this weekend.  Except for playing around with other people's crutches when I was a kid, I've never had to have them before; this will be interesting. 

And the half marathon is definitely out for this weekend.  Oh well, it was supposed to rain on Sunday anyway.  Plus a 7:30 a.m. race start is much too earlier.  Now I get to sleep in!  (I'm trying to stay positive...)

Cheers,

  4. Hi! I am hoping your appointment went well! I am hopeful that my leg will heal quickly. I am at week two with no running and my leg does not hurt at all. I am hoping that this is a good sign! Sending good thoughts your way!
