 Waiting for a cast
Longlegs (204.194.207.---)   12:24pm May 13 2020

I tore my Achilles doing home exercises. I finally got to the ER and was told that surgery was not an option as the hospital won't schedule me during the epidemic and they put my leg in an enormous splint with my toes pointing down and sticking out. I am to come in Monday to get a cast put on. I am told that my foot would be cast in the same position it is now in and that I will be wearing a cast for quite some time as Achilles injuries can be quite slow to heal. This sounds like a nightmare. I have already stubbed my poor toes while trying to crutch. Any tips would be welcome as I am afraid it is going to be a long hot summer in plaster.
