Big Foot Sighting - Day 4

Last night and today my ankle hasn't been hurting as much. There was a raw/rubbing feeling on the left side of my foot and when I took off "Big Foot" this morning I saw the largest blister I have ever seen.

And what is "cool" about this blister is that besides the large blister you can see, moving up the leg is a super thin strand of micro blisters. Ouch.

My beloved doctored up my leg with a padded surgical bandage. I also kept "Big Foot" off for a couple of hours.

I did a stupid thing this morning which necessitated "Big Foot" needing to take a bit of a "sunbath" on the front steps for a couple of hours.

"Big Foot" is supposed to be removed for a shower...but I thought maybe I could just hang my leg outside the shower and all would be well. It wasn't.

"Big Foot" got soaked. Ugh.

The nurse had warned me not to take apart "Big Foot" entirely "or you'll never get it put back together again". Well it had to be taken apart to dry properly and dh had no problem putting it back together...thankfully.

I can't believe that you were allowed to take off the boot! How will it heal properly? That blister must be sore!

You should keep the boot on because if the bone is moved then it won't heal properly! I will phone you later.
