This picture cracks me up! It totally defines Cory's mood lately!! I wanted to take a pic of him in his jacket, I thought I would make a scrapbook page about how he always has to be all zipped up.(all the way up) so I was ready with my camera when he came home from school and did not have a good day nor did he want his picture taken. His poor glasses some how got knocked so out of whack they were barely covering both eyes! My poor baby, I sure do love you!
Now on to my foot, well it has been 18 days, 18 very long days! I still have my stitches but I was finally able to get it wet! A hot shower was very nice today. I should be able to get my stitches out next week. I still can't have any weight on it for at least 2 more weeks though. I am ready to throw the crutches out the window!! LOL So here is a pic of my stitches I put it on photo bucket so if you did not want to see it you didn't have to. the incision is about 3 inches long. Enjoy

Stir Crazy!

Okay so I am on day 10 of recovery and I am going stir crazy!!!!!!!!!!! The foot is still really painful but I guess it could be alot worse considering I can't take anything because of my allergies. I am bored, I have all these ideas I would like to do for scrapbook pages but I can't get in my scraproom, Steve has decided to make it into a storage room and blocked my walk way and I can't get to my table grrrrrr. Not to mention I need to keep my foot elevated. IF I even sit in a normal position Steve hollers at me to put it up! He says " I need your foot better" Well no kidding so do I! (love you babe). Its been 3 years since my first cast went on, and I am so over it!

Surgery update

Well I came home Friday afternoon as expected, my foot was totally numb (was being the key word there) toting a pump that is helping keep some of my foot numb with instructions to keep my foot elevated above heart level for several days. So I woke up yesterday and the numbness has worn off and pain has kicked in, they say it would be a whole lot worse with out this pump.

The doc said the surgery went well , I was unfortunately awake for a better part of it(not by choice) I woke up cause I was having an allergic reaction to the narcotics they had to give me, and got to listen to the not so lovely sound of the saw, yes the saw that they used to cut through my bones! not a sound anyone needs to hear! He said he took out alot of bone and put in a screw. That's right ladies and gentlemen I have been permanently screwed!!!

So now I am at home in bed with lots of pillows under my foot and my laptop in my hands where it seems I will remain for the time being, no weight bearing for 4 weeks!!!!!! And crutches well they don't like me much, I am already getting sore in my upper body from using them. UGH!

Here is a pick of my foot the ball laying next to my leg is the pump with medicine in it. Enjoy!!!
