The Perils of Pauline (read Dianne)


Well I've gone and done it again!  Really done it!  Sunday morning I was hurrying to get dressed for a 100 mile trip to see my sister (who has not phone just now, so I couldn't cancel) and I kicked my cane again.....

 
Popped some Tylenol 3's and off we went for the day.  Sis has a new friend, a cowboy....he and I had a wonderful time talking horses.....DH and Sister went for a walk!!   Now, knowing my background there is certainly some irony in her getting a cowboy and me getting a florist!!
We visited some friends out that way too and got back to Steinbach around eight and stopped by the hospital as I was thinking that maybe I did more than break a toe, lots of pain up in my foot.  Got it x-rayed and sure enough there is a diagonal fracture in the long (relatively speaking) bone.  The nice doctor told me there was nothing they could do for it, which I knew, and that the only cure was to live long enough for it to heal!  Very encouraging fellow!  Three to six weeks.  He scolded me for not keeping it elevated and on ice.
I am still trying to figure out how to elevate a toe and ice it......
I asked him if there was a remedy for my Croc Foot problem.  That confused him for a bit until he took a second look.     hehehehe

Why do you do these things to yourself? Today DH announced that he's about to start painting the living room.

This seems to be the summer of the broken toe. I have had a taped big toe and have been wearing ugly sneakers all summer and after three X-rays it is still broken. I go back tomorrow for X-ray #4. I hope yours heals faster than mine! Good luck!!

The old folks used to say that tragedy comes in 3's. They couldn't be right, could they? No.
