Down but NOT out!

So some of you know that I have been in the process of training to run a 5K in September. I have been very excited about this and have actually enjoyed the program until last Thursday. I was 4 weeks into the program, had shed a few pounds, and was making good progress when I somehow hurt myself. I was so proud of myself too because I worked my way through shin splints the first 2 weeks and was back on track and feeling good and WHAM! So, it's my right knee and my left ankle. I went to the dr. today and have been advised to go and see an orthopedic dr. but the first available appointment she had is two weeks away.(don't ya love it?) The dr. today said no more running for the time being and if I feel up to walking at all that I need to wear a brace on my knee and one on my ankle! I'm feeling rather old right about now. Anyway, I would appreciate your prayers first of all as I try and chase after a very active 15 month old with an injured knee and ankle and also I would like to run in the race in September if that's possible. I'll keep you posted.....
