I usually put the writing at the bottom of my photos, but I thought I would pre-warn you all, if you don't like blood (only small amounts) or stitches or anything hospital related really) then don't read on, it's not pretty! Ok with that out of the way, on too my foot. I had my stitches taken out today, FINALLY! It has felt like forever in the bandage, I cannot tell you how sweaty my foot felt (gross but true) So here is the little story of photos of my trip to hospital at 9.00 this morning. The first one is just me being daft haha.
In the car a few days ago (just thought I would include one of the many embarrassing photos I take of myself on a daily basis)
Behold, yet another embarrassing photo of me! I like to mess around and pull some extremely unattractive faces as soon as the camera come out.
WARNING - VILE PHOTO!!! This was just after they had taken the bandage and gauze off. Fresh air to my foot at long last. But it's not a pretty sight, lets be honest. My foot is a bit swollen, and well you can see for yourself that I have a big line of stitches down my toe.
They also made a small incision on the top of my toe to put the pins and screw or whatever htey use in, I didn't even know they had this!
This is just after having the stitches taken out, I'm not going to lie I shouldn't have looked as I din't like blood or anything like this at all, but curiosity got the better of me. This resulted in me having to lie down as I admitted to the nurse I was feeling so good and thought I was going to faint (it has happened before) Getting the stitches out wasn't too painful other than a few bits where they were stuck in scabs over the wound YUCKK! But with a bit of tugging they were out yayy!
As you can see my toe is now significantly shorter than it was, and compared ot my left toe too! I thought that they just cut through the bone, but no... they took the whole joint out, which is why it is quite a lot shorter. It isn't as much shorter than the other foot as it looks in the picture, I think I had my foot at a funny angle as I still can't straiten it properly due to 2 weeks of not using it. I am bit sad because I found out that I still have to wear the special shoe for 4 weeks longer which means I can't go in the sea on holiday :( That is my favourite bit! But nevermind, it could be a lot worse, I could have had my toe removed or not even have a foot... so I am thankfull really :)
It is my birthday tomorrow so I am going out for breakfast with my Mum, then having a tea party with my friend Lily (Alice in Wonderland themed) So I am really looking forward to that. In case anyone was wondering why I haven't done a post about my hair yet, well that's because I still haven't dyed it yet. The hair dye is out of stock online and they only sell it in the big boots and superdrugs. But I'm not up to walking around a lot so I can't get it yet, but don't worry I will do it.
