No replacement

So it is amazing how an injury can take you down so quickly. Last week I was at the gym for my kickboxing class (which I love by the way). I was practicing my knees while the trainer held pads when all of a sudden I felt this horrific pain in the back of my foot. Long story short it wasn’t Achilles Tendon. Thank God not snapped but something. I hobbled my way through the gym to pick up the kid from the Kid’s Academy and came home. Ice and elevation and pain. I was basically told to stay off it for a week. Funny I have a toddler and a house full of guests coming for #FamJam2016 how can that happen?
I stayed off it as much as I can and luckily enough my parents arrived a few days later. No rest for the wicked my mom jumped right in.

It’s been a week and I still can’t walk without some help, presently in the form of a cane. I have another appointment today to see what, if anything, has changed. Fingers crossed its on the road to recovery.

One thing I realized is that no matter what age you are sometimes there is no replacement for your health or for having your μαμά around.
