Yes, I broke a bone in my foot. The good news is that the orthopedic said it's a simple break, and I don't need surgery or even a cast. I can even ditch the crutches once the swelling goes down. He cleared me to go back to work on Thursday and said to keep it elevated and stay off it as much as possible until then. And the second revisions on The Earthside Trilogy are going to be really interesting because he put me on Vicodan for the pain. Thank goodness, I have several more drafts to go before that one gets published, and a great proofreader to get it through first. I'll need it!
It's a pain to have problems with your foot. I broke the pinky toe back in 2000, and sprained my ankle on the treadmill about 5-6 years ago, so this isn't my first rodeo with this foot. I'm just glad the injury isn't bad (even though it feels bad) and will heal quickly, so that's encouraging. It's my left foot too, so I can drive once the swelling decreases. I'll be in the boot for 6 weeks, but he said I can ditch the crutches once the swelling goes down, which could be next week. I know you've seen these boots before. It looks like you could walk on Mars with it. So should I go with mimicking an astronaut, or a cyborg? I could be space Sherri, or bionic Sherri. Both make Zack cackle.
I've got to laugh about it. It makes me feel like less of an igit.
Anyway, the good news is that limited mobility means I'll be doing a lot with my writing, reading, and cross stitching. Second round revisions of Earthside are flying along. That's good.
So the moral of the story - be careful, and check the tread on your shoes.
That's all today. Take care, and have a great week.
