Also showing the effect that skin is rubbed off if I ever try to wear a shoe.
It's day surgery! I was operated on in the morning and by 5 pm I was going home, but here I was briefly dozing in the hospital after a healthy lunch: tuna sandwich on brown and a fat free yogurt.
The foot is encased in bandages and a protective velcro shoe.

Have also done - but only a little- crochet on my 2016 navy crochet skirt : this is it thus far:

Look! She's fast asleep.
And a rather cute teacosy to finish on today. It's day 3 and the pain is slightly less than yesterday- kind of a bad day- but I have been up a while and need to get the rest and leg raised time quota in so back to bed for a bit.
