I got more x-rays and my hard cast on today...the nurse gave me an option of colors and I was SO tempted to go with bright pink! Until I thought about how many outfits it would clash with, which would serve to make me resent my cast even more. I went for light blue, which I hopefully won't come to despise since we'll be inseparable for the next 6 weeks. As stressful and hard as this all is, it has given me some good time at home with my parents and brother, who are taking great care of me. I am trying not to take any more Vicodin because it totally messes with my emotions--makes me go from laughing to crying in mere seconds! I just want to be back to my normal self and will therefore be sticking with Tylenol from now on.
Luckily, the day before the accident I purchased this top and one just like it in a different print at Forever21--they are the easiest things for getting over a cast! My outfit choices are going to be a bit limited for the next month but I'll just have to, in the words of Timm Gunn, "make it work!"
