more drama

i had an endoscopy/gastroscopy yesterday and thankGod it showed nothing more than an infection and some inflamation. the doctor, who i was quite impressed with ... chose to take a look around that way before he chose to take the gallbladder. he was 99% sure that it was an infection in the gallbladder because the symptoms had subsided. he was right and my gallbladder is happy for it.

as for the ankle ... after the surgery i was wheeled over to the fracture clinic to the ortho surgeon on staff. he took one look at the ankle and shook his head. it should have been casted 6 weeks ago ... i should have gone back before this. so .. i was fitted with $175.00 worth of cast to immobilize the ankle for four weeks and then they'll take a look to see if i need surgery. ack. no wonder it was hurting so much, the dratted thing was disloacating and reinjuring with every step.

oh well.

the cast is one of those foam filled, air pocket things that weighs a ton. it's quite a sight, but at least with the ankle still, i'm not in as much pain ... now i'm just sore because i can move around a little more.

so i go to the hairdresser to get my nails done and my hair coloured. the technician gave my one foot a beautiful pedicure because there is so much attention on that part of my anatomy. i thought it was cute. and it's a pretty colour too...

I'm glad you at the very leat got a pedicure out of the whole ordeal. Makes one feel worthwhile and a good reason to stare at our feet, Hope you has some sparkles put on too. Try and behave, you don't want to ding up those toe nails. Gotta go batten down the hatches, big storms blowing in from the North.
