hi all,

I broke my foot 2 days ago from a sz.

It is in a boot and on crutches for 4-6 weeks.

It was the result of a T/C that started as my usual Complex Partial sz. and then went wild.

It kept hitting the wall and tile floor, and wound up beaking it.

There were pillows under the foot and under my head, and it did not stop the thrashing of the feet.

Do not know anything else becuase I do not want to know what everyting was. It was an EMS call and woke up in Straub Hospital after it was over, they took me.

They took some X-rays of it and confirmed that it was broken and put me in a boot and on crutches and sent me home to f/u with my orthopedic doc on the mainland when I can. I can probably get that done here, rather than flyling for 6 hrs to get back to PHX.

AWWWW Nancy, Not Again! I'm surprised ya got any bones Left to Break. Seems ya no sooner get back on your feet & your bod says OK Let's do that Again.

Yeah, I think I would just go ahead & get it done where you are. 6 hrs on a plane to fix ya up seems to me would be a bit much. Take care Sweetie. Love Ya!

P.S. WOW! I just noted your spelling. Unusual for you to have no Typo errors after an 'episode'. You did Good!

Love Candi
