A First...........

My first, and hopefully my last, broken bone.   

Last Thursday I took a spectacular fall not far from our house.  The potholes in the street were full of fallen leaves and I stepped in one and broke a bone in my foot.  The 5th metatarsal which is on the side of the foot and leads to the little toe.  The orthopedic doctor says I can walk Rascal if I wear this little shoe. 

You know how you hope nobody saw you when you fall?  I was really wishing someone did see me to help me get up but I don't think there was anybody home in our neighborhood.  Getting up was even more spectacular!                            Diane

Oh Diane, I'm so sorry to hear about this. I hope your foot heals as quickly as possible. In the meantime, take it easy!

Sorry to hear this. It is scary when there isn't anyone around to help. It's good you can walk around with the little shoe. I bet Rascal was surprised and confused to see you on the ground. Take care and feel well soon.

I'm sorry mom! You poor thing. From the picture it looks like Rascal isn't sure about the boot either. :) Love you - and heal fast! bean
