Picture Post - ER Visit Round 2...

Before (Sunday)After (Tuesday)
So tonight was ER trip number 2 for me this week. Dont worry, nothing wrong, but on my discharge papers it says to return promptly if Pain or swelling increases, which if you look at that picture, swelling increased.

If you look up to the top here, you can see the before picture of my Ankle, which looks 10 times better then tonight. So I called my parents tonight cus I took everything off, and saw that my foot was the size of the goodyear blimp. So they came over to All Saints where I was and looked at it. Together we all decided to got to the Hospital again, and get it checked out. So this time since we were so close to Rio Rancho, we went up there. Well again, we missed the Urgent Care hours by 30 mins again, but there was also an ER up there.

So this time no one was in chairs, and it seemed like a light night in the ER so we got right in. They took all my vitals again, and pulled up all my stuff on the computer from Sunday. God I love technology, they had my x-ray and it all. LOL. Anyway, so what the Doc told me is that this is normal, and basicly I can thank physics for all of this. I busted some blood vesels in my leg (go figure), and bascily this is all blood draining into my foot. So I need to keep off it as much as I can, and keep it elevated as much as I can.

I am just glad this is normal, as I was starting to worry that something bigger was going on. So ya, looks like I will take the full 4 to 6 weeks to heal up. Damn. LOL

Well, I am beat from hopping my ass to and from, time to hop into bed, put my foot up and watch some TV.
