Did you guys have a good Labor Day weekend? I took the holiday off of blogging to spend it with my family and catch up on those last summer sun rays! Did you do anything fun? I’d love to hear about it!

I wore this chambray romper a couple of weeks ago to dinner with my parents. It’s so soft and comfy that I thought about just throwing on my favorite sneakers with it, but decided to dress it up a little with a cute wedge sandal. And by sandal, I do mean one! lol Speaking of one lonely shoe….a little update on what’s going on with my heel situation…

You may remember from the last update I had finally been moved to a hard cast for four weeks since the swelling had gone down. So I was free of the boot and the scooter and could walk on the cast! I did have to swap out my wedges for a New Balance sneaker though because I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot from having to support the left for so long. At my two week checkup last week I was supposed to get an x-ray taken so we could finally see how the heel was healing (pun not intended!). I mentioned to my doctor that I had been having some pain in my left calf and she immediately sent me to the ER to have an ultrasound done to check for a blood clot, apparently calf pain is a symptom. Well as luck would have it, the test came back positive for a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) from so little mobility over the past 8 weeks. SOoo… positive – no more cast, negative – I had to have my boot and scooter back and I was immediately put on blood thinners.

I tell you all of this because when my calf hurt, I really just thought that it was muscle pain from lugging around a boot and cast for so long. It scares me to think that I almost didn’t mention it to my doctor. Blood clots are nothing to mess around with and although my doctors have told me that if I have to have a blood clot, being located in my calf is the best place since it’s the farthest distance from my heart, lungs and brain in case it breaks off. But I still have to take it easy for at least the next 6 months. So, moral of the story…be honest with your doctors, tell them any kind of pain or issue you’re having, no matter how weird or normal it may sound to you. You never know, it could end up saving your life!

As always, thanks for reading and thanks for your support in dealing with all of this! It’s been a long road and it’s still going, but your comments, thoughts and suggestions are so awesome!

xoxo, Hillary

    I know exactly what you mean about telling your Dr everything, including stuff that you might think isn’t a big deal. This past Sunday, I woke up with an odd sharp pain on my right side, right on top of one of my ribs. I took it easy, took some Tylenol but it kept hurting. Finally I got myself to my PCP two days later, and it turns out I cracked a rib! Definitely not as dangerous as a blood clot, but our bodies have a way of telling us when something is wrong. Sending you lots of healing wishes!! ❤

      Omg, I’m so glad that you went to the doctor! I can’t believe you didn’t know that you had cracked a rib. It’s crazy how those things can happen. Thank you so much for your well wishes!

  • Love this romper and all the jewelry with it! So glad you told your doctor about your leg. So crazy! I will keep you in my prayers and thanks for reminding us that we should tell our doctor everything.
