Down Time At Home

So my foot was getting better but then it got worse. On Wednesday morning I was feeling much more at ease and thought that the swelling on my right foot was going down. It didn’t help that I was wearing shoes to go to work and the swollen foot feels very tight when I have to stuff it inside my shoe. Mom came home on Wednesday morning along with my sister and basically ordered me to partially fill a small bucket with hot, salted water and dip my foot inside it.

So I did but the bucket’s bottom was smaller and my foot was lodged in it so tightly. When I finally took my foot out it was swollen bigger and it looked and felt much worse than before! And it hurt like a motherfucker. I was so pissed off. When it was 5 pm and time to go to work, I had to basically stuff my foot into my shoe and it was painful to walk and even just stand or sit. I struggled through until 3:30 am and then hobbled my way over to get an Uber and come home. It felt so good just to take my shoes and socks off. I applied a lot of pain relief spray on my foot but sleep was hard to come by.

The next day I had to go to the hospital. I waited till my sister and father came home as I needed a pair of slippers and they bought one for me on their way over. Finally by 5pm I went to the hospital and got my foot looked at. I had medicines for 3 days and took leave for Thursday and today. I have kept my foot up most of the time since then, over a large pillow and I am watching movies to pass the time. I should be ok by Sunday or Monday at the most.
