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.

So sad. Cute doc should help ease the pain..at least no surgery, right?

Nope. No surg on the ankle. But the ACL is gettin repaired when the ankle heals since I completed the partial tear during the fall(from grace). You've been missed.

I love the blue cast and the matching polish! That's what I would have done!! Are the dogs chewing on it yet? Hope it doesnt hurt! Do you need your feet to work or can you sit?

lol the boys dont really care about it...and they certainly dont treat me gently. Its a mad dash out the door everytime I open it. They've almost taken me down a couple of times!! An I unfortunately sit on my arse all day at work. Its mostly phones...I steal docs. =)
