Anyway, I took a quick shower and then took Will and Alyssa to the Disney Store. They have been obsessed with the Cars movie, and have a pretty big collection of cars. After that I decided to stop by my Dad's office (he's a doctor) to have him look at my toe. It got kinda messed up from running, and it recently started getting swollen and purple.
I totally thought I would just need a topical ointment, but apparently it is a major infection and he had to numb it up (serious pain... I screamed) and then slit my toe with a scalpel to let whatever it was get out. Now I don't know about you, but I might be the worst patient in the whole world. I do not have a high threshold for pain, and this really really hurt. Will and Alyssa were in the room with me and poor Will was crying cuz he's never seen me in so much pain.
I guess blood was collecting in my toe. My dad said he doesn't know how I've been walking on it, let alone running. Anyway, he seems to be really worried about it turning into cellulitis (just a side note, no woman should ever have to have something that sounds like cellulite) which I guess is pretty bad, and put me on 2 strong antibiotics and told me to soak my foot a few times a day.
So I guess running will have to be put on hold for now until I am all better.
Well, all that happened between 4 and 5 yesterday. And my niece was having her erev shira (kinda like a play, choir and dance all together) at 7. I really really didn't want to go. I was very nervous about the pain in my toe, and all I wanted to do was stay home. I called my brother to try to get out of it, and he told me that if I'm hurt I should stay home, but that she'd probably be sad.
So instead of sitting down and resting my foot, I had to make dinner for my family as fast as I could, get changed, and go to the nearby public school, where they were performing. When I tell you it was long and boring it is an understatement. She only sang 2 songs, and the rest of the time was so boring that me, my mom, Jessica, Emily, and my niece Aliza were all texting the whole time and playing on their itouch. It didn't end till 10!!!! And the only reason I stayed was so my niece would see me at the end.
My kids were bored and tired, and all we wanted to do was leave. But we stayed. And when it was over I gave her a big hug, told her she was great, and after talking to us for 3 seconds she said she had to go and went off with her friends. Pretty typical for an 8th grader I guess. She was very excited about the "cast party" that they were going to which would end at midnight. Ummm.... aren't kids supposed to go to bed at night? That's all I wanted to do. Even my little first grade niece was still running around with her friends....
I must be old.
