I have purple toes

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?

    Yikes, still swollen? Sorry to hear that you’re stil laid up. That’s a long time for a sprain…did anyone ever x-ray that foot to confirm nothing’s cracked inside there?

    I assume this means to Timbers game for you tomorrow night? We’ll do our best to cheer them to a win without you; maybe a few victories is all your foot needs to start the healing process!

  2. Yeah, it’s healing slowly. I called the clinic this morning to check that there was definitely no sign of a broken bone, and they said no, just come back next week if you still can’t walk.

    I’d like to go to the game tomorrow, but I’ll need to find a ride.

  3. Yowch. Feel better soon.
