Givng It Up!

No, not my space!  But people have been asking me what the deal is with my foot and arm.  I have been hesitant about telling you about it because frankly, it’s embarassing.  But here goes!
Second night in Puerto Vallarta, 2:00AM, strange room, pitch black dark.  I wake up to go to the bathroom and instead of going left, I go right……. and walk through a sliding glass door!!  Small cuts all over but I severed an artery in my foot, and of course, it was my Charcot foot!!!  Becky called and three great security guards show up and try to control the bleeding.  Then they called the hotel doctor and I was wheeled to a small room and received 15 stitches.  And as usual, with my Neuropathy, no anethesia.  I spent the next day in a wheelchair but was up and (limping) about the next day.  Still ended up having a great time!  I saw my Podiatrist yesterday but it will be another week until the stitches are removed.  Here are my embarassing pictures:
My foot!  LOL

The doctor made a ‘house call’ the next day/ And the security guard who stopped the bleeding.

Fot the rest of our time there EVERY hotel employee knew what had happened and was my ‘best’ friend!  Oh, and on the plus side, they didn’t charge us for the smashed door!
Becky bought new furniture for her office last Friday so I dragged out the hand truck and we began assembling and arranging it.  She had this huge bookcase that she wanted moved to the spare bedroom so I loaded onto the hand truck and began backing it in.  Well, hand truck slipped, I lost it and I was pinned against the dresser!!  Besides major bruises, I came away with THIS!!

Not the greatest photos but you get the idea.  Two of the wounds tore off skin to the bone.  So when I was at my Podiatrist yesterday I had him treat this too.  I just told him to pretend it was a foot!!  I got antibiotics and was instructed on how to treat it.  He’s such a great doctor, surgeon and friend!!  But I don’t understand why he rolls his eyes whenever he sees me walk in!  LOL!!
Becky had a new 4-drawer file cabinet delivered yesterday and me????  I hid in the garage!!  I am now wrapped in bubblewrap!!
