Out of surgery and doing well! [Oct. 29th, 2008|12:15 pm]
Lanette
I found out I'm stuck in the surgical boot for 4 weeks though and I won't be out for Halloween at all. Supposed to stay down for the first 5 days at least. Will need visitors. Don't let me go on a spending spree as I'm on percocet. Also, no driving for awhile. Turns out that the ligament was entirely torn exactly like the doctor hoped, so surgery went just as intended. I was out of surgery in 50 minutes. He fixed it, but it has a pin in it now so will take longer to heal. The pin is holding my toe straight.

I hurt my toe about a year ago and since it didn't heal it kept swelling. I stubbed it so hard the ligament got torn out of the toe joint so today the fused it together so it can heal once and for all. It should hurt for up to 4 months and then be done hurting.

That's what I get for walking around without my glasses on.

I addition to the normal pain I've been dealing with a messed up toe all year. I'm a mess.

OUCH! If anyone asks on Halloween just tell them it was some sort of tragic TrimSpa-related accident. Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you. So far, not too painful of a surgery so long as I keep the foot elevated. I'm high as a kite though, so maybe that is the painkillers and muscle relaxers talking.

Yay! I'm glad it went well. You know you'll make the boot a new style trend. ;)

I WILL be over tomorrow! I'll text you when I get up and on my way. Let me know if you want me earlier (just call to wake me up) and if you want me to stop at the store on my way. *hugs* :)

The boot is not so sexy. I'm looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! Call or text when you are gonna head over. I'll be here all day, but will make sure I'm semi-awake.

I figure I can use the costume next year, even if I do need to get another dress for it. At least it wasn't too expensive. It is going to be nice not to have a swollen toe with a floppy joint in addition to the back/leg pain when I'm walking.

I wish I could come visit you, but I have the funeral to go to and then I have to come back to work. How sad! Maybe you can come visit us for a long weekend before Christmas???
