Oopsy daisy!

This picture you see is not part of my Halloween costume or some futuristic legwear but an air cast on my right leg (and not a very good picture). I had a nasty fall one week ago and broke my foot. I had a soft cast under the boot for five days and will have to wear the boot for six weeks and hope this heals. The doctor said it was a bad break and one that will give me problems for many years to come, like aching when the weather is cold or damp. Good grief, can't they tell you something encouraging. Sometimes if it doesn't heal, they have to go in and put a pin in. Let's hope that's not the case. I actually have a matching boot for the other leg I had to wear two years ago for a bone spur on the left foot. If I got the head gear, I could be a Star Wars storm trooper for halloween. I can get around pretty well but can't be on it for a long time or the pain is too severe. Just one of those things life throws at you when you least expect it! Just wanted you to know what I'd been up to!!!!

I am sorry to hear of your injury! I hope that the healing goes well and that you soon have less pain and it is easier for you to get around!

Wishing you a happy weekend!
