I’ve been gone for awhile because I broke my right foot in 3 places. I fell down my daughter in law’s steps while staying there to visit and have fun with my grand kids.
My stay was short, only 2. 5 days when Peggy and I decided it was best for me to go back home. Needless to say, I and my grand children were so disappointed.
When I got back home, I was in a mess. I could barely get around and I had to take care of Merlin and Zima. I hobbled around for 2 weeks until Cindy brought me a boot that she had from breaking her big toe. I was in a lot of pain the first 3 weeks.
I’m getting around much better but found out Wednesday that the long bone going from my little toe down the side of that side of my foot is not healing right and there is a big gap where the bone needs to come together.
Next Wednesday I see the bone doctor. I may have to have surgery done on the foot pinning the bone. Or that doctor might start off with a bone stimulator which I’ve never heard about until now. It depends on what the bone doc sees.
I’m not happy at all to think of being laid up all over again. For the first 3 weeks after I broke my foot I was pretty much laid up in bed, keeping my foot elevated and iced down to bring the swelling down. Most of the swelling is gone except for the place the bone has not come together.
This is just to let people who follow me where I’ve been and what went on.
I miss everyone who comes here and hope I don’t need the surgery, but if I do then there is nothing I can do about it. I’ll be laid up again and drugged up once again on Percocet to relieve the pain. I hate to think of going through so much pain again.
I guess it could always be worse.
