Seconds after posting my last entry the phone rang and the sweet little nurse was on the other line. "Mrs. Key the radiology report shows a break and Dr. Daily needs you to come back to the office."

I have an impacted fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone and soft tissue swelling to the head of the first metatarsal bone.

The boot they have me wearing is atrocious! I just do not think I can wear this for six weeks. Why?!?

The first thing I did when I got home was google this break. Google made my mood go from bad to worse! Lets pray that I do not have a Jones fracture to the fifth metatarsal.

However, I am trying to find positive out of this situation. For years I have wanted to visit with a podiatrist about a issue I have (with my left foot). An issue that is caused from wearing heels!
