THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY

After being convinced that I had better go and let the doctor cut my cast off and take an x-ray after the fall, I'm now glad that I did. The minute my cast came off, my foot immediately turned in, and when the Doctor took one look, he said we have got to reset it.

It's a good thing that I went in today, because another two weeks of my foot not being in the cast right would not have been good come August 2nd.

I went prepared with the proper toiletries to shave that hairy leg, and the nurse told me that I could not do it, but as soon as the nurse left the room, I began the task, and was finished before he knew what I had done almost. He thought I had lost my mind when I pulled my camera out and started taking pictures. I told him that I had to have pictures of this inconvenienced crap of a mess that I am in.

I let the nurse decide what color of cast to put back on me since I was in trouble with him, and he picked RED, and I mean bright RED.




After three hours in the doctor's office I was off to get me one of these little gadgets...

Oh Dear Stacey! I am so sorry that they had to reset it! But Thank God you went in when you did...I will be off line indefinitely, because I am going to take care of an elderly aunt and her husband that needs care. But I will be keeping you In my prayers.
