Good News – Bad News

Good news first.  Thanks to all of you wonderful people around the globe I now have 1000 followers! Yippee – tosses confetti into the air.  While some of you are more interactive than others and I absolutely love when you comment, I appreciate every one of you.  I have been around the glove via your blogs and have learned how to say like this post/liked this post in many different languages 🙂

I enjoy reading about your days and lives and from your travels I have one out of this world travel Bucket List.  I’ve gotten some terrific recipes for some great food as well as recipes for things like a cough or making my own soap.  I will endeavor to continue to make my posts enjoyable and inspiring and maybe even educational but I might have to slow down on that for awhile because of the bad news…

I broke a toe this morning and am in a lot of pain and not able to walk very well without assistance or crutches.  Oh I did a number on myself.  You know those movies where the bad guy tortures the good guy by breaking his fingers and the fingers go at funny unnatural angles? That was my toe!  After the initial shock of pain I popped it back into place and taped it to it’s buddy to prevent it from drifting out to that bad angle again.  Then I called DH and waited for him to take me to the urgent care place.

He had to carry me as putting any pressure on the foot at the time was very painful.  X-rays, taping, funny ugly shoe thing, and pain pills that make me woozy later and here I am.  I’m thankful for the laptop being upstairs because getting downstairs to the computer where my images are stored isn’t going to happen for a few days possibly.  Seems it takes bones 4 to 6 weeks to heal.

Well this certainly puts a crimp in my photography and other plans – oh well.

    For your good fortune and misfortune, I say congrats & rats! For those of us who only recently became members of the Dashfield 1000, perhaps during your recovery you could go through your photo archives and repost some of your past favorites? Would enjoy seeing a few of those. Best wishes!

  2. Glad to hear that you reached this milestone (Woohoo!)

    So sorry about the toe. Take care, feel better and when you’re back at it I’ll be here with photo/song humor. 😀

    Congrats, Teri, though we 1000 should be congratulated for exhibiting such fine taste.
    So sorry for your mishap. That sounds terribly painful. I hope you can get the rest you need for it to heal quickly. Take care.

    Oh my, not good, I do hope that your toe heals quickly – get plenty of rest. Congratulations on your 1000 followers, that is truly an awesome milestone, I know you can’t wait to update your Media Kit with those numbers! Happy Resurrection Sunday.

    Congrats on 4 digits!! Bummer on the toe!

  7. AB says:

    Get well soon!

  8. Wow, congratulations, you are reaching four digits followers! And wish you speedy recovery…have a good rest this weekend 🙂

    Ow ow ow, just hitting a toe against something is a pain unlike any other, and to actually break it? Ow ow ow!!!

    I do sympathize — I’m also wearing a foot shoe encasing a thick wad of bandages from foot surgery last week … uncomfortable, but not nearly as painful as your broken toe!

    [raising a glass of water in one hand and a pain pill in the other] … Cheers?! to getting better very soon, to laptops that can easily join us wherever our feet say “STOP MOVING NOW,” and to wooziness and patient husbands!!!

    • Left or right foot? Mine is the left. Foot surgery has got to be more painful than a broken digit and you have my get well soon wishes! I absolutely love your toast – here here! And aren’t the husbands wonderful. I’m a bit worried though about what he may cook for Easter dinner though since we had to cancel reservations out 😉

      • Cindi says:

        Mine is the right foot. Between the two of us, we’re (virtually) immobile!

        (But seriously, I’ve had very little pain from the beginning, and I’m a week and a half post-surgery so it’s only getting easier.)

        Hope your husband’s Easter dinner is memorable, and you are feeling better VERY SOON. 🙂

      • Well between us we have ONE pair of working legs – lol. It’s day two of walking wounded here and it still hurts. I’m sure DH will do fine with the dinner (but me and the crutch will hobble in to check)

    Congrats on all the followers. So sorry to hear about your toe. My vote is for you to take the pain pills then write a blog post…..a new category ‘Teri’s loopy posts’. Wishing you a quick recovery. I’m counting on you for my flower fix 🙂

  11. Debra says:

    Sorry to hear about your broken toe. My dh broke his a few weeks ago. Not a good thing at all. Hope you heal quickly. Congrats on reaching the milestone of 1000 followers! Awesome! Have a nice weekend.

  12. Sonya K says:

    I hate to hear that you broke your toe. I broke a toe some years ago and it was a little bit of a hassle getting out at first. I hope you heal fast and are able to stay off of it to allow it to heal.

  13. Nancy says:

    Yea for you and nay for you… Yea for 1000 followers and Nay to the toe! Feel better soon… and to make life easier…post some past posts… for us newbies!

  14. chris13jkt says:

    Congratulation for the 1000 followers, and I hope that your toe can heal pretty quick, Teri.

  15. Rats! No more pain!!! I do so very-very-very-much want you to heal quickly and in the meantime, not be held back too awfully by injury and/or discomfort. Be well.

    Meanwhile, I am so impressed and wish you thousands more devoted followers, because you do deserve every one of them!

    Hi, T. I’m sorry that I missed this earlier on. (I’ve been busy . . .) I hope that you’re doing better. My thoughts are with you.

    Congratulations and commiserations; hope the toe heals quickly. Take care 🙂
