Happy Sweet Friday Everyone! I had the most amazing treat this afternoon, I can’t wait to show you the pics ;-). I’m glad most of you like Emily Blunt and liked The Young Victoria too, I’m a sucker for period movies like that, Pride and Prejudice, and The Duchess. For the record, Pride and Prejudice is the answer to every man who wants to understand women! We are not complicated, all the answers are in that Jane Austen Book!
Anyways today’s post is going to be a little bit different, I’m not going to share all my eats only my treat, because my mom took about a million pictures of me at the doctors office this morning and I think some of them are pretty funny so I’m taking the space to show you pictures!
Doctor’s Appointment number 2
I took both a vicodin and a zanex this morning in anticipation of pain and anxiety from stitches removal. I was so nervous I didn’t even really feel that relaxed with massive drugs in me.
Waiting… waiting… waiting…
First things first, have to take off the purple cast. They use a saw to take them off, it’s rather scary.
It was pretty involved, I was worried it would never come off. This is the saw they use to take off casts… it looks pretty legit!
They tell you that this saw can’t cut through your skin because your skin isn’t tough enough, while the cast is really tough so it will cut through the cast. I don’t care who you are, once you see that puppy get turned on and placed on your cast, your heart skips a beat and you pull away.
Finally out, but stitches still in.
I was okay until this point, but this is what happened when the doctor came in complete with latex gloves, scissors and tweezers to remove my stitches.
Okay, I’ll admit, I was being somewhat of a baby. It didn’t hurt that bad, only in one spot and even then it was pretty minor.
Instantly I was a happy camper after they were out. Everything I was dreading in this whole process is over! It’s only clear skies from here, I hope.
Looks pretty darn good I think!
Mom and I noticed I have some pretty intense biceps and arms muscles from crutching!
I had to get a good look at my soon to be Awesome scar before he wraps it all up again. I can’t wait to show this one off… such a great battle wound ;-). After about 5 minutes from stich removal my pain meds and anti anxiety pill really caught up with me and I was loopy/sleepy/done!
I was fighting off sleep, until Mom had the brilliant idea to do a comparative picture between my normal foot and my swollen one.
It’s pretty swollen, but not too bad. The doctor thought it looked so good that we’re skipping 2 whole weeks of un weight baring casting and going straight to a walking cast! I chose black this time, I think that color choice was partly drugs talking.
All the drugs and the lowering of my stress level made me feel like puking for about 5 minutes!
Good old back from the doctor’s photo. I was feeling so loopy getting from car to door was a little bit of a challenge.
I laugh every time I see these pictures. After I finally made it inside I slept off my meds all afternoon and when I woke my mom drove me all the way over to Monterey for some Self Serve Frozen Yogurt from MYO!!! Best Mom Ever!
I chose a combination of Coconut and Tart frozen yogurt topped with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries. I sprinkled a little coconut over the top with some almonds. Mmmm!
Since it is sweet friday a few of these mini peanut butter cups snuck into my bowl!!!
And as usual it was just this good! Lick your bowl clean!
What did you have for sweet friday? Have you ever had stitches out? Have you ever been loopy on prescribed drugs?
See ya’ll tomorrow!
