First off… two more weeks on crutches. Joy of joys. Then I transition from crutches to walking with the boot over the next three weeks (if it’s feeling better that is). Then I can move from the boot to a brace. Which will probably mean I could drive again! That would be really exciting.
So I’ve got the whole foot thing still going on. Which means it would be a perfect time to get yet another toothache. I could not sleep at all last night because it hurt so horribly bad. Had some leftover Lortab sitting around and they did not even touch the pain. That is pretty bad.
Went to the dentist this afternoon fully expecting him to give me an antibiotic and make an appointment for a couple weeks down the road. Next thing I know- root canal! So now I’m back in bed chilling out with my ibuprofen and vicodin and antibiotic. Good times. Then I go back in a couple of weeks for my broken tooth. Actually I think I’m going to have them just knock me out and do a bunch of stuff at once. That way I won’t have to keep going back.
Well at least one is taken care of now. And being spaced out on drugs I won’t be tempted to go walking around on my healing foot.
Mandy, I am so sorry that you are going through all of this. What a bummer! You and Job, how bad it must be. I hope that M is being a good nurse. Love you, Ann
He is being a good nurse, albeit a begrudging one. I think he is ready for me to be able to drive more than I am.
My mother was just in the hospital with a bad infection from a simple cut – she has diabetes and that complicated it. She also has the boot and the strong antibiotics – feel better.
