My right foot was merely in the wrong place at the wrong time...but it led to an injury which, for a little more than two weeks, changed the way I did things.
As I told my doctor, "I'd love to say I hurt it playing basketball, but I'm not what you call a recreational athlete."
What happened was that, while I was getting back into bed (at 5:30 A.M.), the back of my right foot struck the metal bed frame. After efforts to stop the bleeding were unsuccessful, I went to the emergency room, where I got several stitches.
It required me to walk on a "post-op shoe" (which, to me, resembles an oversized flip-flop). It wasn't until this past Monday when I started wearing a shoe on my right foot.
It was never particularly painful, except mentally. Every night I changed the bandage where my stitches were, I had to look at the damage.
But I'm now on the mend. And I'm watching where I walk when I get into bed, especially in the wee hours of the morning.
Since this blog is on the personal side, I'd like to extend best wishes to former WTAP anchor (2006-2008) Elizabeth Green and her husband, Nathan.
This past Tuesday, they welcomed their second son, Southern. They have an older son, Saylor.
