Broken Leg Saga: Day 3 (after day I stopped keeping track)

I got my pain meds refilled yesterday. I haven't been getting much sleep because my thigh is still numb from the anesthesia block I received right before surgery (which didn't help much, but that's a story for another time). It feels like microscopic pine needles poking the muscle bypassing the 3 levels of skin as well as anything else. Also, at times there are shooting pains and ichyness (medical term) that is impossible to relieve.

During the day, these mild irritations are easily blocked by the never ending stream of distractions I experience, but at night however, when sleep is elusively dodging my capture, these irritants render me borderline psychotic. In my efforts to return to a somewhat regular normal day dwelling human sleep cycle, I refilled my pain rx and took one last night. Holy cow, I slept for damn near 11 hours! That was nice. I miss sleep.

Broken Leg Saga: Day (I stopped keeping track...)

I got good news and post-op x-rays at my doctor's visit last Wednesday.  I don't need a hard cast, and everything is healing well.  My staples were pulled out and I was advised to get a walking boot.  Hopefully I'll be able to start putting some weight on it next week.  There's no more pain.  Just an annoying itching here and there.  My thigh is still numb from the surgery which feels like it's frost bitten.  That is extremely annoying.  Here are some pictures.  Hope you can stomach them.
