Phil's foot trouble
Sorry for the slow posting. I have been recovering from a torn achillies tendon and a fractured bone spur in my right heel. Seems that I should have just stepped on the cat instead of trying to save its life because the result was that the cat hid in the couch for a day and I have a stupid cast on my foot. After a week I had to go back to the doctor because the bottom of my foot hurt worse than the heel. When they took off the cast this is what they found.
Now I wear a boot that looks like a part of a space suit that I can take off at night so that this doesnt happen any more. It seems that I sweat so much that a cast just isnt feasable in the hot weather up here.
3 more weeks of this and then I start on something else. This has redefined what a 10 on a 1-10 pain scale is and this coming from someone who has broken a more than a few bones...
