Bride of Frankenfoot is about 7 weeks along in the healing process and finally beginning to look like a foot again. I had my follow up with my surgeon last week, my foot is back on track in terms of healing time. I’ll be in a boot until December 1st but can start driving in a regular shoe rather than a surgical one. I [as always] am impatient with my bodies limitations and want to be more active than currently allowed.
At the orthopedist, I saw that rather than one screw my right foot got three. I’m wondering if the damage was more extensive on this foot baut forgot to ask. I’ll be sure to mention it at my next appointment. As of Friday, that may be sooner than anticipated. On Friday a student jumped up and accidentally came down on top of my foot. I didn’t cry, swear, or faint until I made it out of the cafeteria. My pain-addled brain autopiloted me to the nurse’s office where our superstar of a secretary helped me get it iced down. We got my boot off to see that my foot was much more swollen than it should have been. I kept weight off of it the rest of the day and have stayed off of it all weekend. Due to the lack of bruising, I may or may not need another x-ray. I’ll post an update once my doctor gets back to me next week. Needless to say, I’m not doing dismissal duty until I’m out of the boot.
