Broken Foot, Pt. 2

Posted on Updated on

Are you one of those people who likes to look at medical oddities? I am, and I don’t know why. I always stop at TV shows about operations and go to websites where unfortunate people have goiters or boils or weird rashes. I’m not proud of it, please don’t judge. With that in mind, though, you’ll understand why I felt the need to take pictures of the foot, about which you are, by this point, probably sick of hearing. But you asked for Part 2, so here it is, during Week 2.

Ginormous Foot.

By the end of week 3, the swelling had gone down a bit, but the green nail polish still looked awesome.

A little less ginormous foot.

I got one of those big ole boots, learned to walk on crutches (thank you Sarah Sweeney and Wane Fisk for kicking me in the crutch butt), missed a week of work, and watched a little Scandal.

My crutches look slightly like Stonehenge here, don’t they? I like to think so.

Doctor says for another 2 weeks, stay off it as much as I can, but one does need to carry coffee, so I have added this to my arsenal. Think how much Tiny Tim would have rocked it with one of these bad boys. It looks even more Bob Cratchety by the fireplace, right? No, that’s not a roll of toilet paper in the glass reflection, it’s a roll of paper towels, but I’m too lazy to take another picture.

Time to move on! Can’t wait to get back to work because a new day means….new nail polish!

Toes are still bruised, but dang if that new color isn't nice!
