I've been a little quiet this last week, not only because I've been busy with Phydeaux, but also because of that danged toe that I broke more than a year ago, then rebroke a couple of times. Remember? That toe.
Well, it's never stopped causing me grief. It was x-rayed again this Fall with a preliminary reading that it was still or rebroken, but the orthopedic surgeon I was sent to thought I was nuts and showed me how it was healed. OK, "whatever."
Walking every day was killing me, up to the point of a sleepless night with some serious pain, discoloration and swelling. So, I'm no longer walking every day. :(
This last week was a true challenge, waking up each day with what looked like a very inflamed toe, but it's kinda hard to tell, and I'm sick of having it looked at by the doctor. That inflamed toe got worse and worse, though, and yesterday I was really shocked by how red and inflamed my poor toe is (and swollen, ugly and ow!). A soak didn't help; in fact, it was worse!
So, I'm pretty sure I've developed cellulitis, which is not a good thing for someone with autoimmune disease plus diabetes. And I'll have to get my toe looked at again (and will likely be told I'm nuts), which is never fun. :(
Hence ... I've been a little quiet. I do have TONS (okay, maybe 10) of new goodies for the shop. AND ... tomorrow is my two year "Etsy-versary" (opened shop 1/20/08)! I'm planning a big giveaway and some other surprises! Now if my toe would just cooperate ...
