Comment : Broken fibula - day 5
Posted by Nicola Scott on Sun 2:26pm 3 March 2002
Just surfed in, happy to know I am not alone in my suffering (and boredom). Fell down stairs thanks to dippy cat who fooled me into thinking he was having a fit when he was simply cavorting about (on his head!) with his toys. I have broken left fibula just above ankle and now suffer the indignity of pissing in a jug in the kitchen as it is easier than dragging myself upstairs every time I need to go! My cast feels as though it is crushing my inner ankle bone - is this normal?
I am using a borrowed laptop to ease the boredom (worked for about 48 hours - now suicidal again) and am rapidly develpoing repetetive strain injury from too many hours on my ps2.
My cats think all this is fantastic - they are making the most of my inability to leap up every time they threaten mischief. Tempted to chuck them out in the wilderness to fend for themselves for the next two months or however long it will be (have been given various info ranging from 4-8 weeks in cast).
Sank to an all time low today and watched a repeat of the A-Team! Give me a gun and let me end it before Knight Rider and Streethawk start to look tempting!
