The Letter F

I'm in a mood, so let's go off on a tangent. Before we do, let me remind you that the dogs were suspects in this case, at least according to more then one doctor.

F is for foot, which Mrs. Author has had in a cast for eight weeks.



F is for fortitude, required for surviving the holiday season in a cast.
F is for fracture, the diagnosis responsible for said cast.
F is for factual, which the diagnosis was not.
F is for fisticuffs, a lingering desire of mine.
F is for foul.

F is a word that I used far too frequently today when the MRI showed that there was never a break.

BUT...F is for freedom, the new state of that foot. And my wife's mind. Be free Sunshine, because F is for FUN and it's your turn to have it!

Oh, and Nigel would like to remind you that...

  4. Someone fucked up. May I suggest an arse to kick? For best effect with cast still on foot!
    Is the foot as good as new now? Have the bruises disappeared?

  8. Our Mom had the opposite situation, broken wrist, not just badly bruised - we can certainly understand the Frustration this Fiasco Fostered - just don't let it Fester - go have some Fun.

  11. I see that Nigel made it back from NYC. He did much better than I thought. Maybe he's onto something grrrreat there.
    Heck I thought F was only for MY version of Speaking Frankly. Of course, you took it to a whole new dimension. hehehe

  13. F is for fabulous factoids about a flippin fashin' situation. Delivered with fun by a farting, friggin' fun Friend! Nigel, not Mr. Author. Buggers, make sure you clean the ring out of the tub before Mrs. A gets in.

    CAMA for call a malpractice attorney. This just plain sucks. I wore the identical cast for most of the summer and it was NOT FUN. Mrs Author must be furious. I certainly would be. Hope that tub really belongs to Mrs Author because it looks VERY inviting.

  23. Flustered, frazzled, and flabbergasted - 8 weeks in a cast and there was no break/fracture - unbelievable! On the bright side, that funky thing is off and now everyone can enjoy some fabulous freedom :) Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  24. holy crap, NO fracture?! That is Fing unbelievable. You need me to mail a box of poop to someone?

    ReplyDelete
  25. OMG por Mrs. Author! I really feel for you. I tripped over a stupid purse and had to wear one for weeks on end... :( Sorry, we still love you!

    Nigel, you look so relaxed in the tub. LOL!

  26. FUN Mrs. A, that is what I am sending your way! Cause fun is mt favorite word and you were such a trooper during the holidays making it so very special for all of us all the while in a cast. It is now your turn to party like a rock star!!!

  28. Where did this doctor (?) get his/her degree? WTF University? Craziness, total craziness. My Mom had to be in a cast/brace (just like that one) for about 8 months once so she totally gets it! FCOL! For Crying Out Loud!

  29. F is for fourth-grade, clearly the level of education of the doctor who read the original scan.

    And F is for fix, as in, I'd like to fix his wagon.

    But F is also for fantastic, because you won't have lingering problems, or need physical therapy, or worry about re-breaking it, since it was never really broken! :)

  30. So the big question is DOES MRS AUTHOR FEEL BETTER NOW???? That is what really matters.
    I think this calls for a night of dancing with Mr. Author!

    F is for connecting said Foot with so-called Dr's backside!!!
    Glad Mrs. A is okay, but the False diagnosis would have her Fuming, and the physician Fearful of Flagellation!!!
    (I know physician doesn't start with an F, but it sound like it does :-)!)
