In case you are interested, I have a toe update! And of course you are interested, my toe is fascinating.
My toe! It is now bright pink, because I got the bandages redone yesterday. So fancy!
It hurts enough that I have a hard time sleeping, but not so much that I really notice it when I am doing other things. I took pain pills the first few days, I had to take them with food so right before bed I had a bowl of cereal and my pill. Now I am not taking the pill, but still having the cereal which does seem to kind of work for tricking my brain! I have it, and immediately get sleepy and fuzzy headed. The biggest irritation is that I can’t put it on the floor unless I am wearing a ridiculous enormous hideous boot thing.
Also irritating, no independence! With the boot and a cane I can ouch my way across the apartment myself, but I’ve really only got about 10 minutes standing before it starts to hurt too much. But I am trying! I made myself lunch yesterday, all by myself.
And then my Dad made me dinner which was maybe slightly nicer than the meal I made for myself.
Okay, big finale! Do you want to see what my foot looked like when they took the bandages off? If not, just stop reading now. But it’s not really THAT bad, just kind of yellow and swollen with gross stitches on the side.
