I have gained some weight back since my son got married in September, and was ready to seriously get back to sparking now that the holidays are over. Unfortunately, while cleaning house, barefoot I might add, I stubbed my toe pretty hard. Saw the podiatrist the following day and he put me in a walking boot that took all the weight off my toes. Apparently I fractured a toe joint. Calf started hurting after a couple of days but I assumed that was normal due to using different muscles while walking in this boot.
Last week Thursday I discovered my calf was grossly swollen when I took my boot off after work. Called my son and he drove me to ER. Did some preliminary tests, gave me an injection of blood thinner and told me to come back Friday for more testing. After getting the results of the Doppler test, they immediately admitted me to the hospital for blood clots. After spending three nights in the hospital I was released yesterday afternoon. Saw my podiatrist this afternoon and he found another fracture that he missed the first time around.
I am off work for another two weeks as I am still walking on the heel of my foot with the help of crutches and a walkerbut my husband cancelled his business trip this week but will be gone the next two weeks so I will be on my own. So for now I will just have to watch what I eat but no exercising.
I do have to add that I am blessed with wonderful friends and family who have been visiting, calling, sending their good wishes and prayers. Hope all my SP friends are doing well, and staying healthy.
