I didn't know it was possible, but ladies and gentlemen, I've done it. I broke my cast.
Let me emphasize- I BROKE. my CAST.
There's a bigh hole in my heel, and up at the top on the underside of my foot, there's a lengthwise crack. And various lateral cracks and peelages.
Did you know this was possible? It is, and my god I've done it.
Also- Three days to go, and I'm getting scared about getting this thing off. I know, I've bitched and complained about it a lot, but I'm scared of how it's going to feel when the cast is gone. I dread waddling around without a bright pink cast on my leg even more than I did with my fiberglass appendage. All the unwelcome attention that I still haven't really written about is far better than what I've built up in my mind to be excruciating pain without any outward indicators of injury.
I know, I'm crazy. Hold me, readers. sniff sniff.
