Catch up Sunday

Its been a quiet day here today.  Bright but very cold.  I have therefore hogged the house a bit and rested my foot some more.  A lot of the pain is now gone but it is incredibly sore and I have had tovput a fresh dressing on today. My big toe is very stiff and a bit pins and needley st times but I think I am slowly getting there although I am still not back into my normal shoes yet.  I am at the hospital this week and next week I think one is for a check up with the Rheumatologist. It gets a bit cibfusing when you are seen by three or four Departments. I am still in the very unsexy boot which is way higher than my right side so am still utilising the crutch. I have also popped myself on a short vitamin course as a bit of a pick me up as I have been seriously sleepy dropping off st the drop of a hat.  Now I have to start getting myself back into more of my normal routine as the precursor of getting myself organised in readiness ultimately for hoing back to work. I think I am going to have to be very careful here.  I am going to see if I can do a little walking this week to see jow my system reacts as I walk to work in any event although I am usually collected so will see how things go.

 
Instead of a roast dinner tonight I just cooked a piece of roast pork and se had slices with apple sauce in sarnies.  Made a nice change as neither of us was overly hungry.

Right am off to get a drink and watch the Tv for a luttle while.

Take care.

  1. Glad to hear you're slowly getting back to your normal self but please don't push it. Only go back when you are ready (assuming you have the luxury of waiting until you are!). Thinking of you xx

    1. Thanks Tracy As I have to walk to work I am doing things slowly. If I do too much my foot still kicks off so to start things off I have started to go for a short walk wuth my sexy boot and crutch and hope to do things gradually yo build up as once I am back at work U know things are going to be a tad hectic. The base of ny foot keeps skinning and when it does so its very sore. All apparently part of the healing process and all normal. Am taking it steady. Had xrays done the other day foot in right position and heavily plated the plate is bigger than I envisaged but my big toe is nice and straight. Now got to get fit with the walking again and ultimately without the shoe and the crutch. Becausee of the shoe being so deep it leaves my right side lop sided so I need the crutch.The scar site is also very tender and sore but am slowly getting there. You take care too. Pattypan x
