Saturday I stumbled on the stairs and slammed my foot into the back of the step. I wish I'd passed out! Dinner plans involved a walk to the local pizza place, and so after the pain dropped a bit, off we went.
In bed I finally looked at the damage. I cracked the toe nail, lots of swelling and some discoloration. As I tried to sleep, I had shooting pains all over my foot and leg. Sunday it was decided there was a good chance I'd broken it. Orders from mother and daughter: Stay off of your feet! From the pain I had all day I decided I might need to see the dr. Wait, it gets better.
That female monthly issue, I was four months without. And the cramps! I didn't get much sleep that night. So I blew off the doctor yesterday. This morning, the swelling is just about gone, minimal pain. Glad I didn't go to the VA for medical attention.
Maybe tomorrow I will feel good enough to be up and on my feet more. Good luck to you and good luck to me!
