As I write this, it is just a few minutes before noon and I feel so extraordinarily out of it. I did make it to the hospital last night and the doctor
says it is not a fracture - but he advised me to see an orthopedist. Apparently it is a bad sprain and it appears I might have damaged something
called the bursa in my left foot. I brought up the swelling issue I had recently and he seemed to think that was also a bursa issue.
If nothing else, he did check my blood sugar for me and I am not having problems with that it appears.
The fogginess I feel is from the narcotic pain medication that they administered last night. This actually irks me in a way. I didn't complain about
pain, act like I was in any severe pain, nor did I ask for pain medication. Yet the doctor ordered it and it was administered without me even being
aware ( I did have an IV but did not know it had any narcotics involved ). This irks me because a few years back I showed up at the ER with the worst
migraine I have ever had and not only would they not
give me any pain medication - they seemed to act like they thought me a druggie or
something. It was kind of humiliating ( After a long period of time, and a shift change, one doctor did administer a medication called Tramadol that I
think is non-narcotic. But it did make the headache better - which is all I wanted anyway. The fact that it took 6 -7 hours of BS to finally happen
angers me still. )
Anyway - I woke, about half an hour ago, totally confused and disoriented. I do not remember coming home last night - at all. Nor do I have the first
clue of how I made it into bed. I woke, fully dressed - sans shoes and socks - with half a plate of food on my nightstand. I have no clue. I am
positive nobody coddled or nursed me, so I can only assume I was wandering around, cooking, in that condition.
As for the ankle? It doesn't hurt at the moment and the swelling seems to be less than it was last night. The bruising has localized to one area, the
outside of my foot, around the ankle bone itself. I am limping, but not nearly as bad as I was 15 hours ago.
