Are you one of those people who loves shoes? I am, but I don't get new ones often. Here is my latest purchase, only it's shoe, singular. This was all because of my fall down the stairs on Christmas Day. I was going out to the car to get my tea, and that's all I remember. I managed to knock myself out, and I was covered with bruises from head to toe. Fortunately I was at my sister's house, with 2 doctors (my niece and brother-in-law) handy.
Initially, it was my back that hurt the most. My foot was the most colorful, but the pain didn't really start until Wednesday of this week, when I went back to school. That meant I was on my feet a lot. Each day my foot became more and more painful. This morning, I went back to the doctor. Turns out I have a fractured metatarsal. No wonder my foot hurt. I'm going to stay home for a few days, but when I go back I'll be sporting this new shoe. It's not exactly cutting edge fashion, but it is giving my foot a lot more support.
