overdue update

I went back to the orthopedic surgeon today, who removed the splint and the staples from my leg – he was pleased with the progress, and gave me a moon-boot style removable walking cast. This is much better, as I can now take a real shower (though I’m using a shower chair, like a little old lady).

Pictures available of the foot here, if you really want to see them.
And finally, a photo of my Christmas gift from Donna – a necklace:

Love, love, love it.

  1. Your leg looks so painful! Lots of get well vibes and empathy going on over here.

    your necklace.. one word: AMAZING!
    that is probably one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I’ve ever seen.

  3. Thanks!

    And yes – Donna did an amazing job with picking that necklace out. One of the many, many reasons we love Etsy. I have never been a huge fan of traditional jewelry, and I’m now pretty much opposed to precious stones and gems, so I’ve been exploring other options for accessories. I love this necklace so much, and it’s so light weight, too.

    Plus, it says “Elaine Watch Co.” on it – and “Elaine” is my middle name, so that was a nice coincidence.
