Friday, frankly…

foot update 1

Today is Friday, September 17, 2010

Today I learned some stuff.  A metatarsal stress fracture in the foot hurts–a lot.  The boot thing you have to wear for 6 weeks is ugly, big, heavy, hot, and uncomfortable.  It is expensive to have x-rays, see the doctor, buy the boot, and have the boot fitted.  Add the cost of a bone scan because of your age and getting a stress fracture while walking.  And of course there is follow-up.

I do not like what I learned today mostly because it is experience that has taught me all this.  I would have been happier to read about it in a book or on-line.

Frankly, today was a real bummer day.
