Today I learned that I have suffered a stress, or hairline fracture to my 4th metatarsal bone in my left foot.

Huushi - that's why my foot hurt so much when we went for our walk. Because it was broken.

It started hurting on Sunday, but being the stubborn girl I am, I ignored it until Wed. Wed, I walked with Huushi and then I worked. It hurt like you-don't-even-know on Wed. night, and then Thurs (yesterday) the nurse at work looked at my foot, poked it, told me it was probably a stress fracture, and that I shouldn't go in to work today and instead to the doctor. I was limping so badly she sent me home early because it was quiet.

Today I went to urgent care because my doctor couldn't fit me in to his schedule. I sat there for a bit in a room I called X-ray purgatory because it was between the regular urgent care area, and the x-ray clinic. After a while in there, a doctor palpated my foot, and determined it wasn't a soft-tissue injury, and sent me for X-ray. Once it returned she said that it a stress fracture from how it presented and while the X-ray won't show it yet, if it hurts still in two weeks to come back. She prescribed an air-cast and gave me some T3s because it really hurts, and sent me on my way.

The aircast was $160 but my awesome insurance will cover it 100%. I'm very lucky to have good insurance.

Now, off to be social since I"m not at work. Must stay off foot. I'm quite the sight, gimping about with a walking boot, and a cane.
