Today was the day! I went in to get my cast off and then my stitches out! I thought I'd bring my camera so I could capture the moment! Please pull up a chair and get comfortable. I would advise you not to eat during this special feature, and if you have just eaten you might want to go and digest a while before viewing these amazing pictures! Enjoy!
I had to get one more shot of my cast and the "Tell me I'm Hot" on the bottom. Jim asked if I was going to save the bottom and I looked at him like he was crazy. Of course I didn't save it, that's what the picture is for!
This is one of the cast techs and the funny thing is my husband took out her gallbladder. We just started talking and since she noticed my name she said hey I know your husband. I guess she does, and really well now, lol!
I was terrified to have the cast cut off. The sound of the saw is much worse than actually having it removed. So for all you clumsy people out there, who might someday be unfortunate as I, that was really the easy part.
The blade isn't really sharp at all. She just has to go deep until it just about hits your skin and then you jump! Here she is peeling the cast off.
Look at how swollen my foot is! My poor baby toe is warped and just yuck!
Drum roll please. So this is what I've been dealing with! Excuse my hairy veiny legs. "WOW" just look at the size of that thing?
This is my sweet doctor. It wasn't too bad getting those stitches out! Thank you for being so gentle Dr. Nelson!
And this is how pretty my foot is without the stitches. Can I get another WOW!
Now I'm back downstairs to get another cast put on. Hmm, what color shall I pick this time?
Voila! Purple of course!
Well there you have it folks! I wonder if I will gain some new followers because of how sorry you feel for me, or if I will lose some because I've thoroughly grossed you out! I sure hope it's the first one!
