Broken Toe Update
Just when I thought that my broken big toe extravaganza couldn’t get worse, it did!
Saw podiatrist yesterday who informed me that at least one of the 5 breaks in my crushed distal phalange is simply not coming together. Which means that this whole process will take much longer than expected.
Now I require a bone stimulator and I have to wear my giant boot (cam walker, as they so lovingly put it) for the next five weeks until x-ray 8/30. Even better, I have to wear the walker in the house, even “just to go to the bathroom”. No weight bearing without boot!
At least my boot is bedazzled!
And when I am not weight-bearing I am to be resting, icing, and elevating as much as possible. Yes, that means sitting on a ball when teaching and doing nothing outside when I am not. No exercise 🙁
Those of you who know me, know that this is killing me. I hate feeling helpless. I hate not exercising. And I hate feeling out of control of my own body.
I am always used to helping. And there is nothing I can do here to help other than rest. This sucks and I am totally frustrated.
