Truth should be everpresent.
Yesterday we were taking beans to the market to give samples. I had cooked them in the crockpot and had them by my feet for the trip to town. Going around a curve some of the liquid came out and covered my foot and leg. I had to go to the ER to get treated. I have first and second degree burns. The doctor said if it had completely wrapped around the joint I would have had to have surgery. God is so good.

My word! That is terrible. I hope it heals rapidly. I have been guilty of carrying hot food at my feet in the car also. I think I just learned a lesson not to do it at the expense of your misery. Take good care of your foot dear friend.

I was able to go to church yesterday morning but it started to swell after lunch and I decided to stay off it and keep it elevated. Had to take something for pain last night. Hurting to hold it down today. I can walk on my toes to the bathroom but have to keep it moving so the fluid does not collect in it or it hurts bad.

I hate having to lay here in the bed. All I can think of is what I need to be up and doing. Our last day is tomorrow in the parking lot of the extention office for the market. Saturday will be our first day at the new pavillion. I need to have lots of beans ready but I am laying here getting behind. It is so frustrating because I had just got caught up after the last time I had to be away. Seems I can't stay on top.

Oh dear. That is a serious burn. I know you are frustrated to be unable to get things done, but with a serious burn like that it is more important to allow it to heal properly and not risk it getting infected. Group hug

I have been in the bed most o the day. Hurts too bad for my foot to hang down. But I had to go out at one point to take tge ponies off their ropes and put them away. It was thundering and about to rain. I got them put up before it started to rain. But the rain was a blessing because we needed the beans to be watered and God did it for us!!!!

I am glad that you had 'self watering'. We could use some here, but you needed it.

I am better today. Still can't let my foot hang down but I can walk more as long as I keep moving. I guess that keeps the blood and fluid from pooling and putting pressure on the damaged nerves. I took trash to the road today and that was pushing it. The doctor told me to do whatever I thought I could. I waited until Steve went to the field to do it though. He thinks I should still be staying off it 24/7 but I know I need to be up. I can't let it get stiff or it will be worse later. I am keeping it dry and changing the dressing once a day after coating it with silvadene (sp?) creme. Most of the fluid has drained out of the blisters and that is getting uncomfortable.

Progress! Slow, easy and steady! I had to smile though about you waiting until Steve was away to do some things. Can't blame him though for being over protective after what he went though with his leg.

That is true but life with Dr. Kildair is not easy. LOL When he came in fdom the field he was done for. Not only is he doing work he is not used to having to do, but he is also fighting some kind of cold or virus. It is really hot out today and he was soaked with sweat when he got home. He stripped out of his wet clothes, layed down and fell asleep. So I put a thick sock on my burned foot and went outside to feed the animals. Got it done without too much pain and I am glad to save Steve that much work.

I could really use prayers today. I am getting depressed from all the frustration coupled with the pain meds. I feel like I may explode or sink into a black hole of despondency. I hate this. Thursday cannot come soon enough.

I get that when all my meds try & react with each other, especially when the gabapentin doesn't work. Then my feet hurt. Try & read something special. That can help! Blessing.

Thankyou both. I got up and went outside. I filled the pony's water tub and watered the beds I planted and the few things I still have growing from Spring, 21 all together. Also watered the few containers. Yes, it hurt before I finished so I came in, took my meds and put my foot up. Mentally I feel so much better. My doctor told me to do what I felt I could do so I did!!

Being back up and around always helps my mental state. We folks who like to be active just don't do well confined to the couch or bed. Right?

Felt pretty good this morning but hurting now. No infection but the really painful part across my ankle is holding a lot of heat.
