Bummed about my footwear...

This is what I'm going to be looking at whenever I glance down at my right foot for the next month. I have a diagonal fracture of my little toe all the way across the bone. Taping alone apparently isn't enough. I'm bummed. Sigh. At least I got a doctor's reprieve for walking on the beach. I'm going to relish those moments. It's designed to have no give on the bottom. Sooo uncomfortable. This is hard for a girl who loves to go barefoot...

Sorry about the foot, Ellen. :( What did you do? I had to wear an entire leg cast a couple summers ago for a stress fracture. It was no fun!

I feel your pain!! I've got something going on with my ankles... I turned the right one over Saturday, and it still isn't better... Now the left one hurts, I assume from trying to give the right one a break!!
My sister had to wear the full boot on both feet when she was pregnant with her second son. I guess it runs in the family!
Hope you're feeling better soon :)

Oh NO!!! Is this the same toe you banged at my baby shower???

I hope you have a great weekend anyway! I am super jealous of your good family time!

Yeah, Sarah, its the same toe. I tripped over something or other then, and its kaput. I'm a little less bummed about it today. =)
