Kindof a bummer, but my foot is not healing properly. I noticed it about 4 weeks ago and sure enough I've gotta do it again, but this time much more "seriously."
Here's the bizzy. This time they are going to fuse the bones at the bendy part up high on your foot (below the ankle), make two more cuts in the toe and the lower metatarsal of the big toe. I'll be non-weight bearing (no walking, running, or jumping, DANG!!!!) for 8 weeks.
So, this little guy to the left there will be my friend for 8 weeks. Except, I requested that I have a basket on the front. Oh, yeah.... I'm already going to be dorky as it is, scootin' around on m'knee, but add the basket, and that adds a whole 'nuther dimension. Can't wait. I mean really.
I'm not asking for sympathy and I have only one complaint. This has been going on since October, y'all. I'm kindof done with it.
I know what to expect this time, so get ready for more fainting stories! This is the part that really scares and freaks Byron out. Me? I don't even remember much of it, but I did it on a daily basis. It's the pain.
"D" day is March 5th. This time, since it is much more serious, and I don't really react well to the pain and the meds that go with it, they are keeping me in over night at the hospital. After that, it's all Byron, all the time. My parents can't make it this time (grrrrr) so it's just him for 8 days. Then Byron's mom comes to help with the kids and give Byron a break, because he is going to go nuts...But when she comes all will be well. Food will be cooked and eaten, buns will be made, and eaten. Kids will be entertained. She's great like that.
So, who wants to come over and knit in bed with me? Can you send me some movies and some TV shows on DVD for me to watch? Last time, it was HGTV all day. How do people watch TV during the day? Man, there are some dumb shows - not to mention BORING. Of course the first 4-5 days all I do is sleep off and on, with the TV on and off, but still, daytime TV just is BAD. Oh yeah, Almond M&M's are my favorite as well. And, ice water. Send all of those things. Also, I need magazines and books that you have loved. Come to think of it, Rowan yarn might make me feel better too. And, maybe the latest Rowan Mag. Ok, so there you go. That's it in a nutshell.
I've decided Byron needs one too. Won't we look cute together?
That's all she wrote...
