All my dreams of becoming a world famous "foot model" are now gone . . . for good! Unless I want to try had have cosmetic foot surgery! Steven Jacobson pointed out the obvious "fit" in me filming a Franzia commercial . . . in a vat . . . stomping grapes with my feet!! I'm sure they would have paid me big bucks! I'm mean having a "well-know" Franzia drinker with sexy toes stomping grapes to make more wine!! A match made in heaven.
But alas . . . looking at my right foot now it's clear that my life will need to take a different direction. A direction that won't invole making a living with women lusting after my feet!!
But as far as the surgery went . . . things ARE looking good!!
My doctor is telling me that the bone is healing nicely but I have to give it another 2-3 weeks minimum (x-ray showed the bone on #4 still has healing to go). So I have to continue to keep my weight on my heal but can slowly start transitioning a little more weight to my forefoot after another week or two . . . depending on how it feels when I try it. If it hurts . . . don't don't do it!
But bandaging is gone, I can get my foot wet now, and my cane and surgical shoe are now HISTORY!! See 'ya!!
I'm sporting some super cushioned flip-flops to allow for swelling and some odd kind of foot splint that keeps my toes pointing down!! lol Whatever!
Here are two pictures . . . one the day before my second surgery and one taken this morning! (Don't get all freaked out about how red my foot is now . . . it just finish getting a really hard scrubbing!!! I'm betting tomorrow it won't be nearly as red!!) A little swollen but not bad at all!
