We’re off on the road to recovery…

Posted: January 2, 2011 in Stubby the Wonder Toe

Good morning!

First of all, on behalf of the staff here at MOASTBFFG (well, me) I’d like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2011. I trust that we all had a safe fun celebration. Well, most of us, anyway.

See, Stubby and I were stuck in the Chair of Doom. I’m kind of ashamed to say that I didn’t even stay awake long enough to see them trot out Dick Clark. I feel bad for Dick… like maybe he should just be allowed to retire gracefully, but then again, maybe this is what keeps him going.

Anyways, I’m pleased to report that the sutures were taken out of Stubby on Tuesday and he looks considerably less, well, freakish. The doctors and visiting nurses have all commented on how well the healing is going. I’m encouraged. This has me thinking that I may be released from care next Tuesday when I see the two doctors. I’ll still have to take it easy for a while, but I should be able to drive and go back to work and maybe stop walking on my heel.

One thing that you take for granted when you are mobile is how much stuff can hurt with months of enforced inactivity. My toe is feeling great, but from having to sit around with my foot elevated all the time, my hip has been killing me, as well as my back. I’m not Mr. Exercise, but  I am normally doing stuff.

Another good sign on the road to recovery is that I’m able to do the steps a little more. For me, that meant I got to return to the Man Cave and play Xbox last night. The Management got me a copy of Halo: Reach for Christmas and it’s been awesome thus far. The graphics and game play are worthy of the Halo name.

That being said, I’m going to let you go. My New Year’s resolution is to continue on my path and hopefully reach my weight loss goals. I’m in the 275 pound range right now. Would love to be 270 by the end of January. I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks for reading. I’ll leave you with one of the funnier things I’ve seen in recent months.
