So. I broke my foot yesterday by pure freak accident and total clumsiness. Note to self: make sure the perimeter is secure when stepping onto new construction. Further note to self: good job not saying any bad words.
At first it hurt bad enough that I was trying not to cry, but boy did my eyes water. By noon the swelling and bruising (pain) was bad enough I had scheduled an appointment with the doctor. I didn't see my usual family doctor, but I think it was best this way. This doctor listened to me when I mentioned that when I'd broken a fall with my hand several years ago, it took three months to diagnose a dislocated wrist bone. So he pored over my foot X-rays and discovered that I'd chipped and possibly broken my navicular bone. It looks like a hairline fracture runs through the bottom corner of that bone. They'll retake an X-ray on Monday.
And I thought I'd get to run again once this horrible rainy season is over. Hah! This horrible weather seems to have no plans on going anywhere. I am doctoring my foot with Birch and Helichrysym oils - good for bone-mending and bruising, respectively.
If I could ever have a dry enough spell to put some plants in, I'd probably have a great garden. At least the weeds will be easier to see.
How are all of you? Any fun weekend plans?
