Hey everyone, I hope I didn't ruin any food you were trying to digest when you looked at the pictures. I would like to say that any spots you see are dried blood. I was looking at my leg and there was (and still is, I'll have to scrub to get the mole-ish looking thing off) little bits of blood on my leg. Nasty.
Anyway, so yeah I got my staples out, that was really painful. It felt kind of like being pinched except more painful. I was laying down while Chris (he was in fact there) pulled 'em out. I was trying to concentrate on breathing, I moaned on some of them. But it went really quickly. So now there's tape over the cuts. No gushing blood though.
Sorry to gross you all out but my foot looks a lot better than it did 2 weeks ago. It looked like this.
:edit: That gross leg from the link is not my own. My leg looked maybe 1/2 as gross.
But as you can see in the picture with my face in it, I'm looking happy. Well, I was very happy when I left the cast room. Because Dr. Bacon said this cast stays on for 3 weeks, in those 3 weeks I get to put more and more weight on my leg until I'm full weight bearing. And.... The x-ray looks really good, no swelling and stuff. So my body is healing.
Praise the Lord, He is so good. I was afraid that I really hurt myself when I landed full body weight on my ankle when I tripped. But it looks good.
I'll try and get the new x-ray picture up here soon. I have to scan it first. Dr. Bacon asked me to count my screws, there are 8 on the plate and 2 on the other side. That's right 2, I thought there was just one. Anyway, I hope that you guys didn't faint or anything. :)
