Ello, my lovelies~

I simply haven't felt like doing much on my computer lately. Not checking Facebook, not writing or reading, not talking to friends...anything. I've been a bit of a hermit and quite enjoying quiet time on the porch with iced tea and a good book. 

But, I'm sure you're all still wondering how it goes with that surgery business of mine. I'm quite well thankful, aside from that pin in my big toe driving me up the wall constantly and a spot of bone pain here and there.

Last Wednesday I had some of my stitches out. I had hoped to get them all out, but the doctor decided it would be best to leave a section in, as the incision wasn't as sealed up there.

But I have some delightfully gruesome photos for you, so you can share that experience as well!

This is how it was wrapped right after surgery. I wasn't allowed to touch it, so I was SO GLAD when the unwrapped me for the stitches. 

And here's a shot of my foot. It looks a little corpse-like and rotting, don't it? 

Stitches. My incision was a bit curved so I wonder how the scar will turn out. 

This is the overall shape of my foot now. The huge bump of a bunion is gone and now my foot looks very strange. Like it doesn't belong to me anymore.

Steri-strips! And the it was wrapped up again! 

It two more weeks, at the end of May, I'll have the pin out and then hopefully I'll be able to put my pressure down on my toe. I'm getting rather sick of hobbling around in my surgical boot and putting the most weight on my heel. My feet and legs will thank me when I can shuffle evenly again. ^_^

Two Days out.....

Yes, I'm still alive. Mostly. It's been well over a week since I've given the lot of you a decent update. Mostly because last weekend I was scrambling to get my stuff from university put away and clean up my room. Then I was getting my "station" all set up. And then I had surgery on Wednesday. Needles to say, I was a little doped up that day and then yesterday I was super sick and vomiting everywhere.

But I'm fine today, so now I'm writing.

Instead of telling you how my surgery and all that went, I'll just link you to the Youtube video. Enjoy!~

Youtube is Slow

So my video has been uploading for the past two hours now. Seriously? Youtube is ungodly slow tonight and it's kind of irksome. Oh well, I'm satiating my annoyance with some good Bleach fanfiction. I'm an Ulquiorra/Orihime shipper, ya know? ^_~

I had an extremely good day and I'm hoping it's going to be an extremely good night. I had a math final at 7:30 this morning and I thought I was going to do horrendously at it. Despite getting about .2 hours of sleep though, I managed nicely and I feel confident I at least passed it. 

After that I took my camera around campus and did some video recording (that's what is currently uploading, rawr) and then I went to the mall with my friend Katie. We bummed around, bought some stuff, had lunch, and then left. My feet are killing me and I'm exhausted, but it was worth it. 

Last night we had a tornado near campus. Well that's what they say. Apparently some guy caught footage of the funnel cloud, but nothing actually touched down. What a shame...if I had known that I would have stayed up on the 8th floor lounge and continued taking photos of it. Instead, I got swept up in the panic of my hallmates and ended up downstairs in the basement kitchen. Woot....

I tell ya, these Minnesota folk are jumpy. ^_^

I need to be working on my philosophy paper, but GODS I just don't want to. However, I am going to get it done tonight. The "Night Watchmen" are patrolling tonight and they'll be handing out free Red Bull to anyone who puts a white flag outside their dorm room door. I'm participating, because I'm not turning down free energy. Heh. 

I can't believe that this time next week I'll be cooped up on my mom's couch nursing a very, very angry foot. My surgery is only a week away and it feels incredibly surreal. I'm nervous, sure, but not really scared. I more or less just want to get it over with and then heal up. 

Well I'm gonna get back to glaring at Youtube until it does my bidding. In the meantime, here's an example of what operate I'm having done next week:
