foot report

I went to the doctor yesterday and she sent me to have my foot X-rayed, but since it was the end of the day Friday, she says I probably I won't get the results until Monday.  She's on call and will call me if they call her and if it's broken.  I got a copy of one of the X-rays and I can see no break.  

Last night my foot was so bad that I got in the night to soak it, took an extra strength (prescription) motrin, wrapped it in in an ace bandage and went back to bed.  This morning it is significantly improved (not as swollen or painful), but it tends to get worse throughout the day.  

In any case, it happened Monday and got worse every day until Thursday, and yesterday (friday) was slightly better than Thursday (except at bedtime), and today is slightly better than yesterday, so if it is not broken, it may be slowly on the mend.  I hope so, because I haven't been able to walk for several days.

Not only that, but I have to soak my butt in hot water several times a day, and my foot in cold water, pretty soon someone will tell me to soak my head!

(my fibro is much improved and my arthritis isn't too bad.)
