Well, I guess it was too good to be true. Apparently, one's ankle cannot be sawed on with sharp instruments, pried open, manipulated, and then stitched back with sharp needles without eventually protesting LOUDLY. Pain has moved in and refuses to leave the building.
My heel is burning like it's on fire, and my toes are numb and red. I wonder if this is normal? I can't get comfortable, and I'm wondering if I'm in danger of overdosing on Vicodin!
I guess if I can coherently write this, I'm probably not in much danger...
