Well that sucked

The icon shows what I was doing earlier.

I think I had a bad reaction to the anesthetic. My foot and leg (mid calf down) swelled. Badly. I wasn't going to bother changing the dressing on my toe because it hurt so much.

Then I went to bed. And I was in so much pain I couldn't sleep even with a vicodin in me. And I was freezing cold. So I hobbled out to the dining room, Joe kindly filled a basin with warmish/hot water, I cut the dressing off and stuck my foot into the water.

I started bleeding like a stuck pig and began bawling because of the pain. After about a 10 minute crying jag (during which Joe made me hot chocolate, wonderful man that he is) it stopped hurting so much, I dried off my foot (noticing part of the reason why it hurt so much is that he had to clip through skin this time) and re-dressed it with a much looser bandage.

I think the foot swelling combined with the original snug bandage is what caused the majority all the pain.

I'm tired, I'm cold (but no longer shivering), but my foot no longer hurts nearly as much as it did.

I'm hoping I can sleep now.

And I'm hoping the cat and kids stay the hell off of it tonight.
