Counting? Who me?

Only six days till the appointment when I'm supposed to get the pins out. I still don't know for sure if that means I get to walk or not, but at least it means I will probably get to start moving my foot. Maybe it will mean I can take normal showers or baths instead of sticking my foot out of the tub and gingerly washing around the pins. If all of this talk about pins is making you squeamish, just remember, I have to feel them, you just have to hear about them. I have to say, going over bumps in the wheelchair is painful with those in. Not like the RSD doesn't make it painful, but the pins are a bit over the top.

Movement, when done properly, can help with RSD stuff too. It will be nice to get the muscles moving again, though I have no idea how long it will take to completely rehabilitate from the surgery. I know, I know, I should have asked more questions. But last week, when I talked to the doctor, I didn't get further than the words "blood clot" even when she said that she didn't think that's what it was.

In other news, I have one of *those* headaches. You know, the kind that make me wish that I was totally blind and didn't have to see light, and that make me very sick to my stomach... Yeah, I want this one to go away soon. Maybe the neck wrap will help... I'll try it in a little bit.
