I'm done...for now

I AM DONE :-(
FOR NOW :-)

Last Thursday morning while on the job, a VERY heavy object fell and landed on my right foot causing several fractures of metatarsal bones between toes three-four.

The result is now soft cast & ice baths every three hours and I need leg raised above my heart to reduce extensive swelling.

If lucky, crutches next 6-8 weeks or 12 weeks if mending not going well.

No Wee for me till December or 2017 :-(

Ugh!

Be well.

Rob

Wait right foot?

You're golden. Still can shift, don't need that back brake anyway.

Walking cast, good to go!

Bugger. I take it you weren't wearing steel cap boots?

Steel toes don't protect the area he had injured. The only protection you have in that area is boot laces.
