I’m sitting in a docs office awaiting my fate. I broke my 5th metatarsal, a jones fracture. I’ve been reading sites (granted mostly sports injury medical sites) that have all these dire predictions and gory surgical pictures and thinking what will I do if x? And how will I get through y? Medical journals are not my friends.
And of course, the answer is that you get through this like you do anything. You lift up your chin and breathe. And you keep breathing. And if you’re lucky, you hold your loves. And maybe try to be ok asking for and accepting help. And remember I’d love to do it for them if they needed me.
And maybe thank them for stuff like this.
