Talk about a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week!!!
So I recently moved back to Washington, DC and was going to spend a few months bartending at a new nightclub in the city. The grand opening is not until next week so we were just open for our preview parties -- aka practice runs. I was pretty much busy training and working every single night which is why I haven't had any time to update my blog.
On the SECOND day of work I broke my foot. At first I didn't realize it was a fracture, and since it didn't hurt much, I wrapped it in an ace bandage and continued to work on it for a week. It was ridiculously swollen -- first, a baseball size lump appeared on my foot, and then the rest of it swelled to the point of me having kankles, bruised toes, and not being able to put on any shoes except for my Uggs.
Finally, at the urging of my friends and family I went to see a doctor. I was super irritated because the receptionist failed to tell me that they only did x-rays on Saturdays before I went in and the doctor barely glanced at my foot before saying I would need to go see an orthopedic surgeon.
So I went to go get x rays at a radiology center and called the doctor a few hours later to get my results but turns out his fax was machine was broken and they told me to call back the next day.
Frustrated and impatient, I posted my x rays on Facebook to see if anybody could read them and tell me something and I got all kinds of contradicting feedback! At first I got my hopes up because I was told by two doctors that it wasn't broken, but later a radiologist and orthopedist confirmed that I had a 5th metatarsal fracture, but that I could probably get away with wearing an air cast or boot, which allows you to still walk around.
The next day I went to a podiatrist who looked at the x rays and told me my foot was indeed broken, and due to me working on it for a week, the fracture had expanded and I was almost at the point of needing surgery. He ended up putting me in a HARD CAST (no boot!) and now I can't go to work, drive, or walk for SIX WEEKS. So so so so so frustrated! To top it off my first doctor never even bothered to call back with my results -- I want a refund!
It's only been one day in my cast and I already have cabin fever. I feel like John Locke from Lost -- it's ridiculous how I can't even do the simplest things like walk up the stairs! And today I did the most ridiculous thing -- I was bored and decided to work out. I was sitting in a rolling chair (my makeshift wheel chair) and lifting free weights. I leaned over too far and somehow the chair toppled over and I fell on the ground -- and one weight fell on each hand. Now my fingers are blue to match my toes. *Sigh* I don't know how I'm going to make it through 6 more weeks.
Well I guess the good thing is I'll have plenty of time to blog haha. I definitely have a ton of stuff to catch up on and plenty of reviews and giveaways!
