Yes, it hurts (quite a lot), but now it is done - an arthrodesis of the big toe. The inner joint is now removed and fixated.
Isn't the arrow pretty cool ?
It is drawn by the surgeon prior to the surgery yesterday. It is part of the pre op routine to identify the right body part.
I was so close to have surgery performed on the wrong hip many years ago, so I do like the arrow very much.
As I am not able to jump on crutches I will spend a lot of the next 6+ weeks here in my sewing corner, in my wheel chair.
A good place to be, after all :-)
as well as some hexagons and some knitting for preemies, for Amandaprosjektet, which is providing hospitals with socks, hats,mittens and blankets for preemies.
The hexagons have 1.25" sides, so you see, the hat and the socks are not big.
