Poor Mom

My poor Mom has a boo-boo on her foot!

How can I help you, Mom?

She stepped on a piece of broken metal in the yard last week and had to get a tetanus shot. Her cut was still draining a little and was hurting more today. Mom had a follow-up appointment with her foot surgeon today. She showed her "newest" injury to the doctor and he was very concerned. He began cutting into the foot (ouch!) and used words such as: "you really stepped on the metal hard," "this is deep," "possible infection," "could be an abscess." Mom was quite surprised. She thought it was a simple cut/scrape. The doctor put her on more antibiotics, asked her to stay off of her foot for a couple of days, and insisted she call him Thursday and let him know how she was doing.


Maybe I was a little hard on her about not answering the telephone yesterday.

Thank you, ML. The doctor really seemed more concerned that usual and insisted that I call him back in two days. Let's hope it will clear up with the antibiotics. A special thank you to all of the kitties, woofies, and beans that has been sending well wishes since my surgery. This too shall pass. I hope! I hope! Praline really does give me reason to laugh and smile when I get home.

I stepped on a huge splinter a few years ago and had to hobble around with a funny Styrofoam shoe for several weeks. That meant no dancing, which was very sad! Hope your mom feels better soon.
