Update on injury.

Took myself of to Howick to see the Dr and had my foot X-rayed. Seems that apart from severe bruising I also have an "undisplaced fracture of the fith metarsarsal", (your guess is as good as mine). Actually it's one of the long bones that run the length of your foot to your toes, this one joins to the small toe.(the fracture runs lengthwise and not across). Not much can be done about it but it will heal with time, takes about six weeks. In the mean time I may not take part in rough physical sports, such as rugby, kick-boxing, etc. (All my favourite sports ~;)) I can still go fishing though, as long as I wear supportive boots. (I was wearing them when I hurt my foot!).



Herewith picture of my cute feet. Just to prove that I'm not bluffing.

Next thing you know they'll tell you to give up tap-dancing!

Looks like you'll need a boot a couple sizes larger for the left foot. Ouch....

I'm sorry to hear you injured your foot. It seems the older we get the easier it is to injure ourselves just doing ordinary thing. Keep well. I hope the foot heals very quickly.

Oooh, yes, the left is definitely large than the right. Do take care of it, Phillip.
