So I come here, and sometimes I start to write, but there’s just not that much to say.

This week, BabyHope got sick.  Fine.  Then Mr. Hope.  And I’m not feeling great, though I wouldn’t say I was sick.  Maybe just bad allergies?

Last night, Mr. Hope broke his foot in the middle of the night.  He got up and said his leg was asleep, but he didn’t know it until he put it down and rolled his foot.

We took him to the ER this morning as he couldn’t bear weight on it.  The ER doctor diagnosed a Jones fracture – which apparently can be a little “difficult” – sometimes they don’t heal well.  He has to see an orthopedic surgeon.  He has a temporary splint and crutches.

We are supposed to leave for London and Paris in one week.  This is supposed to be a fun trip.  I’m a little worried.

  1. Oh crap!!!! I hope his foot gets better somehow before your trip. This wasn’t supposed to happen.


  2. Hm… maybe he can find some of those fun sneakers the kids wear — the kind that have a wheel in the heel and he can just roll around the airports, London, and Paris on his heels? Probably not the most practical suggestion.

    The vet visit went fine.

  3. I did the same exact thing when I broke my foot. I even had the same fracture. It can take a while to heal due to reduced blood flow to the area.

    I hope it you are still able to have fun on your trip.

  4. Oh jeez. I’m so sorry. I hope you have a great trip anyways!

  5. Oh no, what bad timing/luck!! I hope Mr. Hope’s foot heals quickly and that his injury doesn’t put a damper on all the fun you are going to have on your trip!!

  6. Oh man. I haven’t checked the blog lately and now this?? Poor Mr. Hope! I’m sure you will still have a blast on your trip…maybe just a little less walking? Sigh.

  7. Oh man! That’s very unfortunate.
    Public transport is pretty good in London and Paris, though the metro can be a lot of walking. Rent a scooter?
    Hope it works out better than you expect.

  8. With all of the anticipated walking, is the doc going to put him in a boot? I have a friend (a pediatrician, no less) who broke her foot just like Mr. Hope. She has been booted for about 8 weeks – and it has been annoying but helpful. She broke her foot in Holland and hobbled around for 2 weeks before seeking treatment. Ouch.

    I think you guys will enjoy the trip regardless. The UK is simply wonderful, and I hope you will be overwhelmed with the joy of seeing new things. (I don’t know Paris, so I can’t comment on that one). And London cabs are everywhere. They’ll take you guys door to door. It’s costly, but worth it to avoid some of the walking.

    Good luck. I hope you get the break you deserve.

  9. Oy vey. I am sorry things aren’t going good for y’all. What did the doctor say?
