i'm having the pin removed from my toe - when i popped it it's hitting a tendon and rubbing it - so permanent inflammation because of it - and he also seems to think i'm developing a touch of allergic reaction to hte stainless steel... joys.
surgery on thursday supposedly i'll be at work on friday - though i'll probably be in a heap load of pain. fun. i'll be in a semi-driving boot for 2 weeks. we have exams the next week so i can sit and prop it up no worries. no travel over the holidays - which is one of hte reasons i did the surgery when i did it - didn't want to have to deal with momster b'itching we weren't coming to see her. we were thinking of a cruise due to our 15th anniversary but couldn't figure out when or where or what to do with the girls. so surgery it is!
That was one of the things I hated about pregnancy: no Advil. It seemed messed up to me that Advil wasn't safe (because of potential bleeding issues), but that it was just fine and dandy for fetus & me to take Tylenol 3 with codeine. 'Cause codeine isn't addictive or anything.
Anyway, I'm glad you have a good reason to stay away from momster. Not glad that you have to have surgery again, though. I hope it all goes smoothly so you can recover quickly.
