This morning, I went to the doctor and had X-rays of my left foot taken. The doctor thought my pinkie toe was cracked, but upon closer inspection, it wasn’t. I caught that little toe under a door when I was trying to get out of a bathroom while keeping a couple dogs in. Made my whole foot ache.
Doctor’s orders: No more dropping stuff on my foot (the 2×4 I dropped on it last week also left a bruise), wrap it with an ace bandage, and no running for one to two weeks. When I suggested that I’d go for a good walk in a week and see how my foot feels, the doctor said that sounded like a good plan. I’d like to take care of my feet, so they can carry me across the various finish lines I’d like to cross, most especially the St Jude Memphis Half Marathon.
As I was walking out of the exam room, the doctor said, “you haven’t had bloodwork done in a while. You want to do that today?”
No, I’m good, thanks for asking. 🙂
