I'm a free man.
I went to a specialist yesterday. The foot is healing marvelously. I no longer have to elevate it all day so I can get up and do things. I am to continue soaking my foot twice a day. Continue to take the antibiotics until they run out. Wrap the toe.
The only things I can't do are swim and go to a hot tub party. I don't have a desire to swim nor the body for a hot tub party so I am good to go.
The specialist also came up with an idea to prevent this from happening again. After the swelling is down in the toe and it is back to normal she is going to make a rubber casting to put over it to protect it. This is the first time any doctor has even considered a long term solution. And it happened yesterday on the anniversary of the accident. I am really pleased that the doctor is going to try a long term solution.
I missed everyone, hope everything is good with all of you.
