I Broke My Foot...

If it is not one thing it is another as of late with me. It is either me who is ill or my mother. Yesterday I met my mum at lunch and as I went to sit in the car, my ankle gave way and I was in a great amount of pain. I was crying. I barely got in the car and my mum took me to A&E.  The first doctor told me that there was a crack in my bone and that I would have a small plaster.  The porter came and took me to the Plaster Room. There the nurse told me from the reports, it is a broken bone and that the plaster will be up to my knee!!!!!!!!!!! 

Oh well, they have to do what they have to do to get me well. Then the nurses made me laugh, asking me what colour I wanted my plaster! So I went with black. The nurse further made me laugh, saying to bling it up! 

So for at least the next week or so. I have to keep my foot in the air. So it does not swell up. So I will not be able to craft or make cards for at least a week or until I am able. So on my blog you will see posts that have been scheduled by me for the next week. 

Have to lie back down now. But it is so difficult with the cast. It makes everything difficult. Sleeping, bathroom.

Ouch, can feel the pain for you, did the same a couple of years back at this time of year as well and was horrrified to get plaster up to my knee.

Just to answer your question over at PB, the birthday quiz and prizes are separate from the challenage entries, so more chances to win.

Take care of that foot.

Oh no! You poor thing. Hope you're up and about soon!
A black plaster sounds nice - least it won't get grubby. Wonder how it would look with white heat embossed flourishes?! Just kidding!

Ouch I feel your pain! I broke a bone in my foot when I was 8 mos. pregnant with my son in 1977 - cast up to my knee - on crutches for 48 hours - foot part of the cast was changed to put a rubber piece under my foot so I could walk on it. I tripped over my 2 yr. old daughter's tricycle - my foot hit it and I broke a small bone on the top of my foot - it still hurts when the weather gets cool & damp. Hopefully by now, you are feeling much better soon!
