I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

I thought this was going to be easy...

Very long three days... this will be a quick post.
Wednesday... the Prospector drove me to the hospital, Kaiser South Sacramento, and I spent the day having the podiatry doctor remove Morton's neuroma's from the back of my toes on my left foot.
It went well. I'm home now. Yesterday was not so good. Today is better.
The swelling from the IV is gone.
My ID tags have been removed.
The bandages are slipping. They went from professional wrap (above) to looking like my foot grew another couple of inches.
The "boot" is on and off so much that I just loosened it permanently, so I can slide it off.
From this................................................................ to this.

Crutches are tricky.
Miss Antsy Pants is not looking forward to six weeks recovery.
Got to go.
Have to get my left foot above my heart.
Sounds like the game called Twister doesn't it?
I've got good meds.
Sleeping a lot.

    Never thought you'd be doing a post so soon. Glad to hear it's all over but I'll bet I'm not as glad as you are!!! Well, not ALL over, but now you're really on your way!!! I hate crutches and found that using a walker was MUCH handier and didn't cause blistering under my arms. You might want to give it a try. Get lots of rest. You old people take longer to recover. HA! I'm hysterical with laughter!!! Love you, Dawn

  3. Take those meds as directed, put your foot up and rest, just like the doctor ordered. I hope each day finds your foot improving.
