Little sausages....


My toes look like little sausages!  Last Wednesday I completely bit it and faceplanted in a patient's house.  I missed a tiny little step down into their living room and down I went.  It destroyed my ankle and I have been in a huge Frankenboot ever since.  I've been elevating and icing and yet almost a week later, my foot (especially the left side all around the ankle) is still swollen.  Even my toes are swollen.  In the picture it's difficult to see, but the whole left side of my foot is still bruised.  It's a mess.  I've been approved for light duty... "sedentary only with the ability to elevate and ice foot."  Unfortunately, there seems to be a bit of a shortage of a nursing job that fits that description, so I've been at home.  Normally, that would be a good thing, but my bank account thinks it sucks.  Workers Comp only kicks in after seven days off at my own expense and then only pays like 40% of my normal wage.  O-U-C-H. 

lurve you, xoxo v.
