Tuesday, June 30th, 2009 – At Sea
Ahhh…we slept in today until around 10:00 (even though Mikeo knocked at 9:!5 and we blamed Morgan). I took Morgan to the doctor as her foot was really bothering her and she said she couldn’t put weight on her ankle. The facility was much better than I thought it would be. I thought it would be a small room, but they seemed to have quite extensive equipment and rooms.
We didn’t understand how the medical center works though, and they were closing 6 minutes after we got there. There was also no doctor there except for 2 hours a day. There was a crew doc there, and he saw Morgan to start with. He x-rayed her right foot, and then he called the passenger doctor in. The doc took us to his office and said that it was fractured and that he needed to splint it. UGH. I tried to get an air cast or anything else, so he said that he would x-ray the left foot to compare it to the right. Unfortunately, he came back and said for sure that it was fractured, and that even though it is a small fracture, it is a fracture nonetheless. UGH. So, he splinted it and gave Morgan crutches. He said that she cannot put weight on it. Hmmmm……This is going to be interesting.
We didn’t do much in the day time after that, but Mike and I did do our 2 miles of walking and running. We had dinner in the dining hall, and they had surf and turf. It was delicious (Morgan and Mike had the same thing). After dinner, we went to the Filipino Crew Show, and it was awesome. We got to learn a little more about the culture by hearing some songs like the National Anthem, and we were also entertained by some dancing. Boozee, a bartender on the cruise, was the host. He did a great job. Also, Edwin, our wine steward was in 5 of the 7 acts. He was awesome. There was also an amazing Elvis impersonator. He was really great. We had a fun time, and it was great to watch the crew have so much fun performing.
We go to bed after discussing what in the world we are going to for the tours with Morgan in her crutches. She is not very good at the crutches, and she has fallen on them several times.
