My ankle


Beauty, eh? Yes this is my ankle. Notice the awesome staples, actually they won't be so awesome when I get them out on the 2nd. Funny how the screws actually look like screws, huh? For some reason I thought they would look more.... Different. Ah so cool. But my ankle looks so gross. All bruised, my leg is bruised yellow, my toes are swollen and bruised purple. But at least I don't have to look at my foot all the time, when the nurse took the splint off I had to lay down it was nasty. Something about seeing office supply's holding your skin together, and dried blood. 7 inches long for the plate and about 2 for the screw. So nasty.

That's about the coolest thing I've ever seen a bone do.

Father Cory: Yeah, I'm pretty proud of Dennis or Janice or Janus, depending on what my ankle feels like being named. =D

Kristy:Hahaha. =P and yet I still feel that I cannot use the handi carts at the store.

Hi. I hope you're more active after the 2nd.

Elyse said...

Jaho: You mean when I get the next cast? Yeah, I hope I won't have to keep my foot up then and that my toes won't swell.

It's quite creepy, one lady (doctor) said I'd "know" that I have hardware in me on rainy days.... 0_o
