    Hi Kara,

    I am really sorry to hear the latest news about your foot. I hope the air cast is providing a little relief. Do you still have to stand 5 hours per day?

    I hope your insurance is going to cooperate this time with the bracing and PT.

    Hang in there, and please let us know how you are doing. I know foot problems are terrible.

    Hey everyone quick update on my foot. So ok I had a appt with my foot doctor almost 3 weeks ago. We got there about 11:30 or 12:00 we had popcorn for a snack. We checked in at the desk. I had X-rays done. We then went to the nurses station we then followed her to a room. Then after a while a orthopedic resident came in his name is dr Sheridan. He was nice. He was helping dr Giza. B His reaction to my X-rays was price list it was funny.
    He examined me by having me walk, sit and lay down. Then he when to get dr Giza. Then someone knocked on the Door it was Dr Giza and dr Sheridan. Dr Giza asked how I was doing. I said ok. He that good. Dr Giza looked at my X-rays and said that I have a broken foot. He said it could been prevented by the orthotics.
    I have to wear this air cast until I go back on June 26th
    I have a orthotics appt on June 6th

    Kara, I'm sorry to hear that. Can you take over the counter pain killer?
