*dances*



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. :)

Are you sure that wasn't a prop from Shaun of the Dead?

Elyse said...

Curley: Well, their out now. It's done with, I'm glad. :)

Kristy: Hahaha... That's what I thought when I saw my leg 2 weeks ago.

Kaits said...

Shawn said...

The first thing I said when I that thing most classify as a picture was something like "eeeeeelllllluuuuuu" That's evil to put a picture like THAT on your blog....you've scarred me for life!!!!

Todd said...

It wasn't bad at all. When you said "gross", I thought you meant it was some sort of bloody mass. I don't have a very weak stomach. In fact, I set it as my desktop background to bug Shawn.

Mom said...

Glad those things are out and your color is sooo much better!

Grandma said...

You have been so brave and I'm so proud of you.

Elyse said...

Kaitie: I have a story.... Some people just step off curbs and break their ankles.

Shawn: I will have scars too. :)

Todd: No sympathy. Wow, my ugly ankle is famous on your compy.... I'm so. Proud, or something.

Mom... I'm glad my color is better too.

Grandma: Not bravery. All I did was bite my lip.

Elyse said...

Ashley: DON'T BREAK YOUR ANKLE!!!!

Do I look (like you can even tell what I look like from that picture... XD) like what you thought I would look like?

Someoneelsebefor said...

sort of.I kinda thought your hair would be darker,and more straight.i thought you would look more goth/punkish.I dunno why though,lol.What do you think i look like?

Elyse said...

I have no clue! I don't know if you'll look like Megan or not. Because my cousins don't look very much like my family.

Father Cory said...

Now I'm a manly sorta guy, and I don't get queasy over much...but that made my stomach flip. Seriously. If you were to look up "seriously and disturbingly gnarly" in the Britannica, you'd see that picture.

Elyse said...

Thank you F.C.! Some people *coughtoddcough* have no sympathy. Just be glad my Dad didn't have his camera the first time they took it off. After seeing that I had to lay down so I didn't faint.
