Jared and I had really hoped to get a definitive idea of what is going on with his ankle today....unfortunately....we still don't know. They did another x-ray. They told him to stay on crutches at least another 3 weeks. To continue icing....seems that as it heals, they'll be able to tell more of what is going on....and they want to wait 3 weeks for a MRI. They saw a bone bruise and are wondering if it will resolve or require surgery....we wait.
We've finally admitted he's out for the football season. He has 3 - 9 weeks of crutches left - depends on how things work in the next 3 weeks. He also has appointments with physical therapy.
AND his lab results are back...but his blood pressure is still high. It has been "fun" to get lots of letters from the Mayo clinic. ::snort:: He is now scheduled for more lab tests, 5 day blood pressure readings and kidney ultrasound. We appreciate your prayers for either healing or an ANSWER as to why our very healthy 16 year old is having blood pressure readings of 153/92. He runs. He lifts weights. He doesn't eat HFCS, fried foods, caffeine, sodas......The doc seemed more concerned about this than the ankle - which really frustrated Jared. Dr. didn't buy my theory that the blood pressure is all about Mike being gone. I'm going for the theory of a faulty blood pressure reading machine now.....and the nurse probably just didn't hear well when she did it. LOL
BUT we did get lots of packages today....from Mom (see countdown post):
From Math U See....Stacia was EXCITED and said, "Now I just need someone to send me the alphabet!"
Off to watch a movie with the kids....we've earned it. LOL
Living all of life before the face of God...
