Today my Foot Surgeon sliced open my foot-bottom. At 4:30 am I was not going to get up any earlier to put in any mileage on my Schwinn 170. I will now pause Jim's Trek Part IV at 19,555.4 miles; 31,471.4 kilometers.
Glad to see that the correct foot was labeled. Not sure why my initials are inscribed with a Sharpie…
|Definitely the right left foot-bottom.
Recovery room, after some sort of calcified thing-lump was removed. Picture this, one sort of oldish fart in a recovery room with three under-5s. Foot-bottom (me); tonsillectomy and adenoids; ear infection; and bead-stuck-in-ear. Nurse asked whether I needed something. My immediate response…”Get me the hell out of here.”
Doctor’s instruction – 3 days off foot, which means no walking, no dancing, no riding. Return visit to check incision and healing.
Home by 9:15 am. Pain killers provided… (but I haven’t had to take one as yet, and it is now 3:45 pm.)
And of course three of the four Pack are somewhat concerned. Each had its turn. Tinker will not come near the bandage.
