Accessorizin to the Max
Yeah well, I get a call from my ortho on Tuesday night and it goes something like this....
Dr. GeorgeousIWouldntSayNoToHim: Hey Peedee, hows your ankle doin??
Me: Oh Hi Dr. GeorgeousIWouldntSayNoToHim, its ok, bothering me a bit, but then again, I dont take pain meds, just the Tylenol and Motrin so I guess thats to be expected. Whats up??
Dr. GeorgeousIWouldntSayNoToHim: Well, I recieved the radiologist report from the x-rays we took last friday and there appears to be two more fractures. Can you come in tomorow so we can discuss this?
Me: WHAT?!? Two more?? Um yeah, I guess. I'll be there.
So I trudge to the office yesterday and he sits me down and says that because there are now 3 fractures vs just 1, he thinks I need a hard cast. Stability really becomes an issue with multiple fractures. He's had me in a soft cast or removable cast. I think its called a cammiewalker (?)
I'm all like, nooooooooooooooooo, I dont want a hard cast! I like to take this one off to take a shower!!!
I lost the battle and am now sporting a lovely blue cast. I got the blue because it matches my pedicure!!! Its all about the accessories and my cast is a big fat uncomfortable accessory.
