Yesterday was the Big Reveal of the now Nailless Big Toe. My toe had more gauze on it than The Mummy! I removed the specially made baby sock and began unraveling the gauze after I had cut into it with scissors, couldn't find the beginning of the roll. When I got down to the pad on my toe, I had to soak it off in the shower. It was stuck on there pretty good. I managed to get the last tiny bit off without making it bleed. Had to pat it dry and then put on the wound gel. The instructions say some stinging will occur. Big understatement!! Then I rebandaged it all by myself. That is one very tender place and will be for some time!!!
Today I was able to slide it under the strap on my new flip flops. Not much protection but I don't think I can get my Crocs on. Will put socks on tomorrow and try the Crocs again. No way for a tennis shoe to go on at this point in time. Will be sandals for quite awhile, which is what I usually wear anyway. Just want to protect that tender toe!!!
Libby called me this A.M. to say she would be going back home Saturday morning, a week earlier than planned. I hate to see her go as we have had such great times together but she is so very homesick! She has been here almost 7 weeks and that is a very long time to be away. Besides her dogs miss her so much and her DH!! She has been pretty much stuck inside the last 3 weeks and that is not FUN! I have sure enjoyed her company while she was here. But alas, she will return in June for Stephanie's wedding and will not be wearing that dang brace!!
I am going to the Blooming Arts Festival in Bartow this weekend. there will be beautiful artwork, crafts, food and old cars and OLD men!! HA HA!! Our favorite Chinese restaurant, The Great Wall, will be open for lunch. They have a delicious buffet just waiting for everyone to dive into.
I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!! We all deserve it!
