Am I lucky, or what? Don't be jealous. You know you want one too. Actually, I did want this. I saw the podiatrist again today. My foot was not getting better. In fact, it has been hurting worse since I received the shot(s) last week. It was becoming so painful that it was keeping me up at night. So, he gave me the "cast". Instantly after putting it on the pain went away. Ahhhhhh....so much better! Who cares if it's ugly? At least I won't be in pain anymore, and hopefully it wil give my foot some time to heal. Never a dull moment around here!
