Not for the squeamish or those eating breakfast.

Okay, I'm putting this under a cut/below the fold, since it may be more than people want to know. I will give a basic summary, minus the yucky details and say that the pins came outt, but I can't walk until next week. This is not what I wanted to hear, but that's life, and I want this to heal right. I can start taking it out of the boot, bathing it (yay for real baths without straddling the tub), putting lotion on it and moving it around. I still have to wear the boot when I'm moving around, but sitting I can take it out. That's after a few days, of course, which you'll understand if you click the cut.

If you're reading in bloglines or any other service where you get the full post, and you don't want to see the yucky stuff, stop reading here.

So, I didn't want to know this until the doctor took the pins out, but the pins were between two and three inches into my heel. It didn't hurt too bad, kind of an intense pull. But, man did it bleed! I haven't felt that much blood before. Yuck!

So, I have to have the doctors re-dress the wound at the pain clinic. Because, yeah, the dressing is probably going to be nasty.

So, that's the deal!
