Just back from the doctor about 1/2 hour ago. I tripped last night and yes, landed hard on my bad foot. Had to go in this morning to have it x-rayed and have new dressing applied. My brother-in-law took me and went in the room with me and he was fascinated at looking at the incision site and stuff. As for me, I thought I was gonna faint when they were taking the outer dressings off. I DID NOT look at all. So, now home with new dressings and orders to be more careful walking and strict instructions to stay off it as much as possible, etc.
Wanted to thank everyone who posted in my venting thread. I'm much better today.
Nervymeg: I'm trying to not take this too seriously. I tend to be an obsessive compulsive person and I have done some journaling since I vented and I am obsessing far too much on what I can't do. Need to focus on what I CAN do at this point instead. By the way, you used the term nutto and that is very appropriate.
Percycat: Thanks for looking in the empty house for my patience. I'm still soooooo happy that you have your baby back.
Wen: I'm counting the days until I am up and about again and you're right this too shall pass and will be but a distant memory someday.
Kitt: Thank you for finding my patience. I really appreciate all the hard work searching for it. I know others can totally relate to how I am feeling and I know my circumstances are nowhere near as bad or horrid as others and I am thankful and grateful it is not something worse. It has been a real eye-opener to say the least. I was feeling sorry for myself and not thinking of others who are struggling more than I. Kitt, I have a removable cam walker kinda cast but still have to be in it most of the day and cannot stand on the foot at all without it on so taking a shower is out of the question and sleeping with the dang cast on is a huge pain in the you know what.
Thanks again everyone for all your support. I'm gonna go sit on my deck now for a little while and do another word find. I'm trying to see how many word finds I can get done while I'm off. I'm up to 49 now and counting. My Mom bought be an inch thick book full of word finds. It has 251 in it. So see I've set a goal for myself while I'm off. Always important to have at least one goal each day to strive for right.
Love you all,
Thou shalt smile and have a nice day. It frustrates those who have other plans for thee.
