Good news… bad news

This past weekend was so AWESOME! Back on the desk… it’s like home, sweet, home. I only anchored the two early shows this last weekend, and it’s a good thing I did… because I came home and passed out both nights by 9:30. I still don’t have all my energy back. 

I am so blessed to have a job that I love… and to work with amazing people. Here is the link to my grand return to the anchor desk, and the package that aired about my accident and recovery…including an amazingly awkward hug, from my dear friend, Ted. Link: She’s Baaaaaack

With this good news, comes a dose of bad. I went to the doctor this morning for a check-up. My pelvis looks great! He said it has healed 100%. However, I have some fractures in my feet. We won’t know the extent of the damage until my MRI, which is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. 

I’m not going to lie, I had a real moment when I found out I may have some fractures and contusions in my feet. It is getting difficult, but I have to keep searching for the light at the end of the tunnel, even if it is pushed back a little further. I am so ready to be able to walk, pain free. This slight set back is only allowing me to continue to practice patience, something I have never been great at…. but I hope at the end of it all, I will be a master. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I have so much admiration for all the hard working mamas out there. I wished my radically stylish mom in the ’80s, a Happy Mom’s Day! (see pic). Yesterday morning, I said to Jeff…. “Do you think maybe I can have coffee in bed, since I am a mother to our two dogs.” He said: “Why don’t you ask them?” But, eventually, he caved. 

I will keep you posted on the situation with my paws…. until then, I am camped out on the couch watching movies.
