I went for my orthopedic doctor appointment today. There is good news and bad news. The good news is that I did get the cast removed and was given a fracture boot instead. This is good mainly because I can take the boot off and let my foot breathe and move my ankle some. The bad news is that I was advised to keep all weight off my ankle for two more weeks. This means that I will still not be able to stand and that I will still have to maneuver around with the knee scooter. I had hoped to graduate to a cane, especially for my vacation. I still plan to go, but I will definitely be doing a lot more convalescing than normal. Maybe this will be good for me?
Denise and I will be in NC for vacation from July 2 - July 10. Mia will be at Camp St. Thekla.
This Sunday as well as next Sunday (July 10) Deacon Yuri will be serving a Deacon's Liturgy with Pre-sanctified Communion . Deacon Yuri will be serving Vespers on Saturday the 2nd and the 9th at 5:00 pm. On July 17th (this is over the two weeks that I have to keep all weight off my ankle) I should be back in the Altar to serve for the first time since my fall.
Mia is in Day 11 of her trip to Spain and France. Since last Saturday when I sent my last update. She has been throughout Spain visiting and touring Bilbao in the Basque Country , beautiful San Sebastian on the Bay of Biscay, Pamplona, and Barcelona. (*Mia has wanted to go to Barcelona since she was about 10 years old when she saw a movie about the famous city.) Mia absolutely loved Spain. Yesterday they arrived by train in Paris. Today they visited the Paris Opera house and the Eiffel Tower. This evening they took an Evening Cruise on the Seine River. Tomorrow is a walking tour of Paris, a visit to the Louvre Museum, and Notre Dame Cathedral. In the evening they will have dinner in a Parisian Restaurant. Friday morning they leave for home. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. Below I have posted a couple of photos.
