An Update

Even though this work week has been pretty easy, I am so happy to see Friday arrive! I left work early Wednesday for a doctor's appointment, was gone most of yesterday for my leg appointment and a meeting, and will be gone a lot of today.  The weeks after sales season are always like this for me. Taking care of things that were put off until after March 15th.

My second opinion went about like I expected it to yesterday. If you follow me on Instagram(erinshell10), then you saw this yesterday...

I'm in this very fashionable boot for at least a month and on crutches whenever I am not responsible for the care of Tucker. So, while I'm at work and when Danny is not at work. My appointment went rather quickly, because the doctor didn't need to take any x-rays or schedule an MRI. He looked at the images that were done by the first doctor IN JANUARY and clearly saw a stress fracture in my lower leg. No strenuous exercise for at least 3-6 months. Eventually I will be able to resume walking at the park. Hopefully in time to go on our cruise in June since that will involve a lot of walking. It could be worse. I could be like my husband and require surgery and 3 months of recovery time. No thanks!

Yesterday wasn't all terrible though. After my appointment I visited my mom at work so we could trash talk the orthopedic center where I went first, had lunch with my BFF Shelby who I haven't seen since January, then my brother and I closed on one of our houses! One of my 2015 goals is achieved! Getting rid of that loan payment, insurance premium, the property taxes and still having enough left to pay another loan off and walk away with some for ourselves(Hellooooo, mudroom!) is such a huge relief! We should be closing on one of our commercial buildings next week too. Next up, is another rental house and then another commercial building. I. Can't. Wait!

Although the day started out pretty sour yesterday, I am thankful that I can recover pretty easily and that things are looking up for my brother and me. We've been through a lot since our dad passed away in 2010. We are finally getting things cleaned up so we can live less stressful lives. I won't know what to do with myself!

  1. That is so ridiculous about your first opinion in January! What would have happened if you didn't go in and get a second opinion?! That's just nonsense! Hopefully you have a fast recovery! That is absolutely amazing about getting rid of that property and all the other fun stuff that comes along with it! What a great feeling that must be!
