Foot Injury Update

Well I just got back from the doctor's office. I have a hairline fracture and torn ligaments. They call this a "sprain". Now I'm sporting these cool fashion accessories......
This calf slimming ankle air splint.

To dress up the splint, make sure to add this lovely, black goes with everything post-op shoe.

And to finish off the ensemble, these beautiful, never go out of style crutches.

Now all I have to do is keep my foot propped up, put ice on it, and don't stand for longer than 5 minutes every hour.

This injury is on my left foot. Funny thing is.....February of 1999 I had the same injury on my right foot. Same location.....exactly 10 years ago. How strange is that.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear that you've hurt your foot like that! Hopefully it won't take too long to heal. That is indeed quite the coincidence that 10 years ago to the day, you had hurt your other foot at the same place!! Make sure you take it easy and let that foot heal! xoxo

I'm glad you went to the doctor and they were able to give you some things to help alleviate the pain.

I hope you are feeling better very soon!

I hate to be literal but that would be ten years and four months and not EXACTLY ten years. LOL

Bless your heart anyway. Not fun I know.
