I never had a cast for my broken ankle. The Emergency Room doctor put me in a fiberglass cast initially (partial casting for the back and sides). But my Orthopedic Surgeon put me into a boot straight from surgery.
I’m thinking he saw “newbie” written all over my face when I walked in the door and thought, “Good grief! If I put her in a cast, she’s gonna dissolve it in the shower and I’ll be redoing it! At least in a boot she can blow dry the insert!”
And given my showering track record the first time through, he’d have been right if that was his thinking!!
My orthopedic surgeon (OS) did my second surgery on Tuesday afternoon to correct his over-correction. His physician assistant (PA) said he came out of the room looking really pleased and…
So many of you have asked where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. I’m finally coherent enough to explain.
On February 26, I fell off the back of my pickup truck and broke my ankle… both bones in my left foot plus a torn ligament. In less than one minute, my life was turned upside down. Not as bad as some people’s, because I know I have friends tackling much worse things, but it’s definitely taken a turn for the worse.
I went to the park yesterday with my man and his grandkids.
Since I broke my ankle, they’ve come to visit and we hang out at the house drawing. And each time the get here, they ask me when if I’m still hurt.
Today when they came over, I let them know I finally got permission to walk (6 days ago), but that I was going to be slow for a bit still.
I finally got a chance to talk to my girlfriend last week and we got talking about dishes and how they suck… Not because we like talking dishes, but because my usual multitasking self was in the middle of washing mine while we were talking.
I told her I’d finally found some wash cloths that clean really well without getting all stinky and smelly within a few days!
Yep. Last week I finally made it in to get that dreaded “procedure” done. You know the one… that procedure that no one wants to talk about… EVER!
Well, I’m not shy so here it is. Yes, I got a colonoscopy done. Go ahead. You can say it. I promise it wont hurt. If you’re sitting at the dinner table, you may want to wait till later. Of course, if you’re sitting at the dinner table, you shouldn’t be reading this anyway unless you’re alone. Otherwise it’s rude!! 🙂
Back in October of last year, my blog got hacked. At that point, I thought @McAfee Site Advisor was a useful tool, since the warning that suddenly popped up saying that my blog was malicious.
I spent the next two weeks getting my blog set back up… installation of backup files, password changes, file cleanup and more.
But the popups keep showing up that say my blog’s malicious, even though everything has been fixed.
If you know what this is an x-ray of, you’re probably over the age of 50, know someone who is, or have possibly had colon issues.
I had a colonoscopy done in my late 20’s or early 30’s. I don’t remember a single thing I can list as fun! I do remember the doctor explaining to me how most people’s colons go up, across, and back down, but that there are a few select people (I’m a lucky one amongst them!) who have a colon that, instead of going straight across behind our hearts, it does this little loop-de-loop type thing. He said he’d really love to have a chance to do a study on it.
Got up this morning and was waiting for our boss to send us pickup information. Instead, we got a phone call that the company owner was going to shut the Phoenix terminal down.
He says it’s only for about 45 days. But he’s been telling us a ton of stuff since August when the terminal opened that he hasn’t followed thru on, so there’s really no reason to believe that’s going to change now.
Even in my “I hate to cook” home, I don’t mind making these… for several reasons. First, there’s ZERO cooking involved so there’s zero chance I’ll burn it! Second, they’re…
