How historically accurate is it: Not very; entirely machine sown and the aforementioned eyelets.

First worn: Not yet, is to be used as an under-dress/chemise of a Medieval Gown I am making.

Total cost: the cloth was around $15, maybe $5 for the notions and I never pay more than $2 for a pattern.

I will work at getting pictures up latter as it is late and the computer is giving me fits but I wanted to have the entry made before the deadline.

Got the cast off today and the Podiatrist put me in a walking shoe instead of back in the walking boot & told me that was all I would need for work. After leaving his office I did few things which included about a half mile of walking & by the time I got home my calf was killing me. There is no way I will be able to get through work tomorrow in just this shoe so I plan to use the boot at work and slowly ween myself off of it. I am not allowed to wash my foot until tomorrow however & I am so looking forward to doing so.

Alright so there is a total rupture of one of the tendons in my R great toe, which is why it keeps popping out of joint and is hurting. As it has now been twice the amount of time that is required for a soft tissue injury to heal I will have to have surgery to repair it. No my Podiatrist would like to scheduled it for next week but given how long it took to get the MRI approved I asked if we could do it next month...for some reason the 14th was rather open so that is when my surgery is scheduled.

He said I do not have to ware the walking boot any more but given the muscle atrophy that has occurred I will keep using it lest I injure something else. I will however start doing some ankle strengthening exercises as after the surgery I will be stuck in a walking cast for 6 to 8 weeks and then back into the walking boot. So I shall give work-med a week and then begin the campaign of daily calls until they a) have the surgery request and b) approve the surgery.

Now the doctor said I will need to take 5 to 6 days off after the surgery and that after I should be cleared to go back to work with out restrictions so I will request a week off tomorrow.

So I went in for the MRI today @ 10 am. I was able to ware my own clothing as it did not have any metal in it and basically take an hour nap. I then took the images over to my Podiatrist so he could look at them before my appointment next week. Until then...

my phone, my poor phone

While running my earends and preparing for Christmas my mobile fell out of my pocket in the icy, slushy parking lot without my noticing. When it's absence was noted much later and while at home I began calling it in the hope of locating it and it range through several times to no avail before it suddenly started going straight to voice mail  After thinking rather hard I recalled the last place it had truly been in my possession and rushed back to the grocer to look in the parking lot and inquire at customer service if it had been turned in...it was in with the auto's and had obviously been run over but it was found, thank goodness. Now I shall make use of that insurance I have been paying for and get a new one though this one is more than four years old so I doubt the replacement shall be the same. The worst part is that I shall not be able to call the work med while it is out of order as the number is on my phone...

Work Med
tardis, phone box, tenth doctor, weeping angels
Well good news, I saw the work med again and they have decided I will need to see a specialist for my foot & transfer me to my Podiatrist for good. Now I just need to get that MRI approved and all shall be well I'm sure. To think my injury happened a month ago yesterday and still hurts like the dickens. Onward and upward then...
