Y'all are waiting with bated breath for the report on my injured foot, I know, so here it is. The open wound finally scabbed over July 15 (after the injury in June, after staying open for a couple weeks) and the scab fell off a few days ago, leaving a pink scar. The swelling is probably down 90%. The pain is much reduced. I still get5 shooting pains at the injury site sometimes, but they usually only last a minute or two. There is residual soreness inside with bending, but that is slowly fading, too. It still hurts, but is much improved. The pain from the pinched nerve is now much worse than the foot pain--WOW! That's exciting.
