What a way to start the new Year!

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Seriously... I want 2013 back. At least I ahd no injuries or falls in 2013.

I spent yesterday in the ER. It was my foot issue. I walked barefeet to the bathroom and stubbed my toes on the bookshelf. My Podiatrist has warned me of the dangers of being diabetic and injuring your feet. I ALWAYS wear shoes or slippers but this one time when I had to go bad. The top part of the toes arequite painful yet under that it's numb still no feeling.

The ER wrapped my foot in an ace bandage TIGHT. Sent me home saying the Xrays show no break that it was a bad sprain. I know I have gross looking feet.

My brother Dennis who died last May had parts of his foot amputated to diabetic related problems. (Infections set in) I'm doing everything I was told to do. Icing the toes and elevating my leg.

this picture was taken today.

    Oh, I hope you feel better soon! I sprained a toe once, and it was so awful. I could barely walk. I was trying to pretend it didn't happen, but didn't feel better until I finally went to the ER and they gave me a special boot thing to wear, so my toes would quit moving around.

    Oh that looks bad, did the toe break the skin and bleed ?

It is so hard to check on feet closely and beneath for me is impossible. Fred tries to use a magnifier but usually he gives up, now I do not frustrate him by acing to check for me. HUGS Pat in Maine.
