I have survived a whole week of D on crutches. It turns out her knee injury is a sprain (I think her LCL) and she starts physical therapy on Monday. The orthopedist was a little surprised that she can't put any weight on it, so I'm guessing he'll order some other diagnostic if she still can't walk by our appointment next week.
Did I mention that I am teaching EVERY day of the week? Taking D to all of these appointments, picking her up from school, taking her to school, leaves me little time to get anything done. I have a ton of teaching prep to get done this weekend- and some research stuff I need to get to, also. At least it's Saturday. Ugh.
*Only one other faculty member ever teaches 5 days a week like I am right now.
**Our weekly visiting speakers are scheduled too late in the day for me to attend, since I have to get home before D does- or pick her up from school while she is on crutches.
