I think I’m in the homestretch now! I saw the orthopedic surgeon five days ago. The good news is that the wound is healed. The bad news is that I must stay on the crutches for another three weeks 😞
My foot has morphed from a giant, fat sausage to a leaner, peeling sausage! The doctor said that the peeling was from the swelling going down. To me it felt like I was peeling the skin off of a sunburned area……we’ve all done it, right? You start scratching and all of a sudden, you’re pulling away a sheet of skin! Ewww. Luckily the skin underneath is pretty and pink! Spankin’ brand new!
Obviously I need a new pedicure! Should I try a pretty blue shade this time? Like ‘Opi’s What’s with the Cattitude’?
And the skin color is still weird too, but ‘Doc’ assures me it needs more time and ELEVATE….ELEVATE….ELEVATE!
He also tells me to bring a pair of ‘clog’ type shoes for my next visit in three weeks. What I’m dreaming of are those fancy platform heels that are so popular now……..
