So I shattered my heel and cut all three tendons in my foot. Go in for surgery Doc says cast/ boot going to be onf for 6-8 weeks keep it elevated and iced. I was able to do that for my first 2 or three days then it was back in the shop well when I went back for my 1 week follow up needless to say with the extensive swelling I set my self back. You would think I would learn 4-5 days latter im back out there again. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US!!!!!!

You are perfectly normal.
After open heart surgery and a 4 week hospital stay I had my grand daughter out in the shop picking up stuff for me that I could not do. Couch potato's just sprout and die.....motion is lotion so keep moving my friend. Just take it a little easier. Put you lounge chair in the middle of the shop and turn on some golden oldies while ordering a pizza delivery.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I felt something pop in my right knee while crawling around under a Volvo diesel 3-axle tractor yesterday- - - - -doing an inspection of a trashed engine after a botched oil change. Now I don't know which leg to limp on! The left one's got two titanium braces and 15 screws in it!

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Cringe and wail in fear, Eloi- - - - -we Morlocks are on the hunt!

You need to go to a busy street intersection with a "will work for food sign". Those bums don't know which leg to limp with either. smile
I truly hope its nothing serious, BTW.

When I had surgery last year, they didn't want me to pick up anything heavier than a gallon of milk. I heeded their information and was back pretty fast as I recall. I still have the big C, but I think the major surgery is over with. Just tune ups, you know, points and plugs. The jab me with pointy things, and "plug" up the holes. LOL
