Let me show you something.
That, of course, is the foot to which my broken toe is connected. Wearing a real shoe for the first time in a month.
I had my follow-up appointment about my broken toe yesterday, and everything is healing nicely. I don’t have to wear the funky black sandal anymore, and can go back to wearing regular shoes as long as they provide good support for the toes. And it turns out that my running shoes as perfect for that. I was also told that unusual sensations (burning, numbness, even electric tingles) are a common thing for a healing bone, and that I shouldn’t be concerned unless they really hurt.
The best news, of course, is that I can wear real shoes again! And that, by April, I should be fully healed. I’m looking forward to that.
Oh, in unrelated news, how can a 15-pound dumbbell feel so incredibly heavy?
