And my front and side yards are covered with the orange wild lilies. definately a summer attraction. I love these flowers as they are so easy to grow and transplant.
Yesterday was a bad day. We had some running around to do in the morning. The longer I was on my foot the worse the entire darn leg felt. You find yourself favoring the leg with the broken toe. So then your calf starts hurting. So you favor the calf and the toe and your hip and back complain. Oh the importance of good posture.
The toes is numb and swollen. Unless I hit it. So yesterday I hit it again on Ricks big old shoe. Put me through the roof with pain. And throbbing, oh my. And it hasn't stopped since. So I laid around the rest of day with ice on it.
I have been having trouble with this same toe and foot. This is the same toe I broke a couple of years ago. Then I got arthritis in it. So this isn't helping. I have gotten 2 different suggestions. One says I should go see the doc in case it isn't set correctly. It it needs to be a lined better or even have screws put in it it will heal better reducing my chances of getting arthritis worse. Plus I would get pain pills. The other suggestion is to just tape it like I am doing and suck it up for a few weeks until it heals. That the doctor would probably just tape them together anyway.
The weather looks nice out right now. I am going to still try a bike ride. It might make my calf feel better. I don't use my toes to ride, just my middle foot so it might be OK and it would do wonders for my mood.
Well, just wanted to whine a little. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
