What a Difference Sleep Can Make!

Last night was the first night I got more than a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. I’m sure it was a combination of being tired from the early morning at the doctor to the meds to deal with the pain of having been out and about. But it was amazing.

This benefit is mostly for my current outlook on life. The pain in my foot is still the same. I walkered myself to the kitchen this afternoon (yes, I didn’t wake up until 1:40pm), and my foot protested the entire time. Probably the wave of blood that flowed into it, but it wasn’t worth the trip. I felt like a lazy slug and like I should get some exercise. That feeling probably won’t overtake me in the next week or so.

They have my foot a a weird angle. For my foot, anything remotely flexed and held is weird, but even aside from that, it feels stuck out to the side. I’m not sure if this is contributing to the discomfort, but since it isn’t major discomfort, I’ll address it with the next cast.

There is a lot more room in this cast than the old one. I’m not sure that’s a great idea. I should have asked them if I could put lotion on my leg before they put this cast on, but I didn’t think about it. Now I am suffering from the itchies. If I focus on something else I don’t notice.  I read that I can try a hair dryer on the cool air setting. I am definitely considering giving it a try.

I posted about what my leg hair would look like after weeks of not shaving because my leg was in the cast. What I apparently didn’t think about was shaving the leg that isn’t in the cast. Getting clean isn’t the easiest these days and I have not yet figured out how to get myself into a position where I can easily shave my leg. I can think of lots of ways to try, but they may result in me ending up on the floor after hitting several things on the way down.

It’s getting pretty hairy up in this piece:
