[COLOR="Indigo"]I understand the financial dilemma you are in, but Moogie is right... it could be worse in the long run if you put it off! I was lucky in that I was able to schedule the surgery during our Fall Break, so I had a few automatic days off. Then I took one more week off and the next Monday. I've been teaching for 12 years, so I had a lot of sick leave built up. You may just have to explain to your employer that you need to do this now so that you aren't out even longer.

That's really odd that you can't pinpoint a specific event that caused the injury. I don't know the exact day that it started hurting, but I know that I was teaching step aerobics twice a week, running some, and doing other impact activities.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkRed"]I'm so sorry about your other bone fractures! That's awful! I was getting a bit worried about how I was walking on the side of my foot after getting off the crutches. I've had to concentrate really hard on walking off the ball of my foot since starting physical therapy. It's becoming natural again! Yay!

It's funny that you mention the calf thing! I've always had big, muscular calves (not always something I've liked), especially when I started teaching step aerobics a couple years ago. My poor right calf is pathetic now! At physical therapy last week, my therapist put little muscle stimulators on my calf for 15-20 minutes to help build my muscles back up! Never thought I'd need that![/COLOR]
