When life gives you a cast, choose the HOT PINK and polish your toe nails!!!!

So as I showed you in my last post,I was wearing a boot again,like I wore for 2 months when I broke my left foot,not long after John died. The Dr. said that it would never heel and it hasn't because of my MS. So as I told you when I posted the boot on my right foot,it's not broken,it's worse than broken, everything's torn up in the foot and it's the foot that I've had lymphedema in for years. So the foot's not healing (I'm realistic I don't expect it to) and the Dr.'s been bringing up putting a cast on. Well 1 week ago yesterday I agreed. I admitted to the Dr. that I was nt being a good girl keeping the boot on.  So why the 3 fat rubber bands holding the shoe on?? When I got home last Monday after getting the cast on,that shoe thingy kept flappin' in the front like a duck's foot!! SoI got the idea to take it off and stretch one of those hospital slipper socks over the cast. I don't go anyplace or even really go outside,so it worked,till it wore out. So Saturday I decided to put the "shoe" on. Well I didn't even get the velcro strap through the plastic buckle & it broke!!! I thought geeze this thing prolly costs a fortune and it's a piece of crap. Yup here's the tag,Made In China. So I asked Marcia to go to the orthopedic place to get me a new one yesterday. Well when she came here to bring my meds,she didn't have the shoe. They told her that they could give her a new one,but that they'd have to charge me again for it, UNLESS she brought the old one back. So she'll be bringing me the new one today. Since Marcia was here yesterday,I aked her if she could please run the sweeper for me since Meshe keeps finding things to tear up all ove the place and I try to pick up all the little pieces of "stuff"but there's too much and I'm afraid that she'll choke on something. With my colon the way that it is I haven't been able to push the sweeper since I got out of the hospital over 3 1/2 years ago. John used to do it. Plus I'm not real steady on my feet even without the cast,hence the cast lol!!! Also since Marcia was here,I thought it would be a good time to take a shower!! I've just been gettin' neked & soapin' up at the sink. Can't get the cast wet,so attached a big garbage bag on it. I won't go into details about this shower other than to say that I WON'T be taking any more showers whilst the cast is on!!! I see the Dr. Thursday. Maybe he'll take the cast off,but he's told me since the 1st time I saw him,that when we can get it healed I'll need to wear a brace.

Wish I had some Hot Pink nail polish!!!!

  2. Hi Sherry,
    OMG you are great! I love the way you find humor in the worst situations! I sure hope your foot heals now and you can take a shower again! But in the mean time I think that pink sock and the cute little pink toes are really hot! Hang tough!!
    Big Hugs!!!
