It’s been almost a week now, and I still can’t walk. The swelling has gone down enough that I can finally sort of stand, as long as I don’t put weight on my injured foot, and I’m getting better with the crutches, but I’m pretty sick of this already. The only perk is getting to work from home, with a laptop on the couch and a snuggly little kitten.
Sputnik had to go back to the vet today because his cold got worse, so now he’s on antibiotics and some kind of eye drops. He already seems to have perked up. (In fact, he just lept up the back of my chair.)
I’m past ready to have a working foot again. I want to do my own grocery shopping. I want to be able to walk to the bus stop so I can go do things like the Portland dorkbot meeting I missed tonight. I want to be able to carry my own bowl of cereal to the table at breakfast. Hurry up, please? Or at least give me a robot that can ferry things around the apartment?
