"Can you keep your foot up during the day?" she asked and I guess my smile gave away the answer before I laughed and said, "umm, not really."
That's how my day started at 7:30 in urgent care, foot propped up so the doctor could see where I stepped full on onto a nail sticking out of a board last night in the pitch dark. Yes, I tell my kids all the time to wear shoes outdoors, so not following my own advice I had it coming. I'm pretty sure thought that it would have pierced my rubber boots too.
Swollen foot, sore arm (tetanus booster) and sore wallet ($141 antibiotic) later, I'm actually having an enjoyable day immobile. Making Christmas craft gift lists, reading lots of library books and having nice discussions with the kids, enjoying some science experiment videos via youtube and looking forward to laying a very mobile sixteen month old down for his nap in a bit.
