Well Gretchen missed school yesterday. She got up and gave an effort to get ready, but she complained of a headache and dizziness. I could tell she wasn't going to make it off the couch. If she did there was no way she'd get through an entire school day. I called her in absent and she fell back to sleep around 8AM and didn't get up until 1PM. The first day of school took a lot out of her.
This morning we had a bit of a break as well. Since her 4 week post-op is tomorrow, she needed to go in for x-rays again. We went to the office right in front of the hospital this time. You're suppose to be able to do X-rays on a walk in basis. But the other radiology office is really popular or something. We had over an hour wait. This morning we got in and out in half an hour. The staff seemed friendlier as well. I think we will be going to this location next time.
Gretchen was happy. I was able to sit in the room with her. Then the technician showed her the pics he took. He was totally grossed out about the pin in her heel. Admitted he did not do well on his surgical rotation. All the power tools in the operating room. At the 2 week X-ray visit, I asked the other technician how the pics turned out. She said only the doctor can read them. All I thought was I asked how they turned out, I wasn't looking for a diagnosis. We're all happy with the office #2, so I'm sure we will be back there for the 6 week X-rays. Then we dropped Gretchen off at school. She is definitely back to herself at least compared to yesterday. Hoping today won't wear her out as much as Monday.
