Broken Bits

So, I have a hairline fracture in some bone in my left big toe. (great toe?) Mostly it is a soft tissue injury, which is why apparently why I still can't move it all on my own. I can move the toe by touching it with my hand, but not all on it's own.

So I've taken some motrin with (ahem) a glass of wine. Yep, I'm evil, shoot me, but I'm in pain. I swear Nicole I'll be compliant with the calcium & D starting tomorrow. And Anonymous, really citrical? Most of the stuff in juice I've seen seems to be from dairy products, a no no for me, but I'll look again. Next time, leave a name, even a pseudonym, cause I feel silly calling you anonymous! Ha ha from a woman with a fakey name on the internet! groan...

So I'm back to icing and elevating and taping it to my other toe. And limping.

The next time someone tells you that shrivelled up ovaries are no big deal if you don't want to have kids, feel free to point out this blogpost to them.

Swiss cheese bones suck.

  1. Sorry for the anon earlier. Here is more info. I'm not trying to endorse any particular brand, they were just the first I found when I searched:

    Tropicana OJ:(http://www.tropicana.com/TRP_HealthProfessionals/OrangeJuiceResearch/OJR_CalciumFortified.cfm)

    Minute Maid Apple Juice (click on nutritional information):
    (http://www.minutemaid.com/products/Variety_Juices_and_Drinks/AppleJuice.jsp)

    Propel Calcium (their website doesn't list the source of calcium but I checked a bottle)

    Hope that helps! :)

  2. Ok, I have some assvice for you. Have another glass of wine. And don't break anymore bones!

    I hope you are on the mend soon. At least you will have a good excuse to sit with your feet up this weekend!
