A Jacked UP Foot

GR&DF thank you for all the kind words about the Pumpkin Patch. Karen asked if it was in Half Moon Bay where they have a gigantic Pumpkin festival with about a bazillion folks all celebrating this wonderful squash. Although a fabulous place - my humble snaps are from the Pumpkin patch in the City located in the inner Sunset.

Yesterday was taken up with a day long visit to the Presidio Surgical Center. You may ask - "why were edgar and Rico visiting??" In a nutshell.....A few months ago Rico managed a major boo-boo to his foot - it was the right foot and what he did to it was an - Achilles Tendon Rupture - which ain't pretty and hurts like the Dickens!! He has been hobbling about and bitching about how much it hurts until finally he saw a Doctor last month - and that appointment led to yesterday - and under the knife he went. Here is a snap of the result...

We got there around 11 am and left around 4:30 pm. I got a lot of stitching done while I waited, but it was a long, dull day. Everyone at the Center was super and I can't recommend it highly enough!! After getting home and him into bed I ran out an filled his prescription for extra strength pain killers which should take the edge off, but it will hurt for a good long time while it heals.

There you go sports fans - thanks for stopping by - do come again!!

Take care,
edgar

Ouch! Poor Rico. My foot is hurting with sympathy pain. :( Seriously, I hope he heals quickly. Nothing stops garage/estate sale shopping than not be able to walk around.

Sending healing vibes to Rico and extra patentice to you. :)

Rico...Holey Schmoley! I've seen 700-pound linebackers go down like a sack of doorknobs with that injury. And they most certainly do NOT walk around after doing it!

Are you secretly a super-hero that doesn't have the ability to feel excrutiating pain, perhaps?

Happy healing thoughts winging their way to you from Middle America!

P.S. Don't forget to get Edgar a fabulous present for taking such good care of you...(tee hee!)

Hazel said...

Sending warm hugs to Rico and a dose of patience for you.

Wishing Rico a speedy recovery! Must be so painful. I know how he must feel as I have had 4 knee surgeries. He sounds like he is in good hands.

Julianne said...

Hi. Edgar,

I hope Rico recovers quickly.

You guys will have to have a party when he has fully healed. Meanwhile, I hope he is able to take it slowly.
