Yes I’m back, and yes my foot is in a cast…

I’ve been quiet, but I am back from my amazing trip! I have lots of pictures to share, along with some vegan travel tips I picked up along the way, and I promise to get my butt in gear and share those soon. Of course, if you follow me on instagram you’ve already seen some of the pictures, like these:

Here’s another picture you probably haven’t seen, because it was just taken yesterday by my podiatrist… That my friends, is a fractured metatarsal. It’s basically the side of the ball of my foot, where the fracture is.

Yes I'm back, and yes my foot is in a cast

What does this mean? Well, for one it means I’m going to miss yet another ski season, as I’ll be in an air cast for the next 6-8 weeks. And that’s just if all goes well, it could actually be longer! But, I’m really just grateful that it happened after my trip.

And if you’re curious as to how I broke it? Well that’s easy. I fell down the stairs. Graceful I am not :)

The good news is that my cast allows me to stand comfortably long enough to cook, and I happen to have a whole backlog of recipes that I need to share anyway, so I plan to get this blog back into gear. So, hobble along with me and get ready to check out some really yummy appetizers just in time for the Super Bowl!

    I broke that same bone in my foot a couple years back, so I know how it hurts. Stay off it as much as you can!

      Thanks Mary, I fully intend to rest as much as I can :)

    I have loved seeing all of your photos on Instagram! It looks like it was an amazing trip! What a bummer about your stair accident! What is an air cast like? Will it be more comfortable than a cast or orthopedic shoe? I hope so! I hope that everything heals quickly for you!

    • Barb January 21, 2014, 2:45 pm

      It’s fairly comfortable… it’s one of those walking boots? Anyway, it takes the pressure off the bone, so that helps!

    So sorry about your foot!! Having a fracture sucks so hard. Mine first one from August is healed I think, but now I have a new one on the side of my foot. Somehow it happened as the other was healing, even though I was wearing an orthopedic shoe. Now I’m in a walking boot. Hoping this one heals faster. I wanna be able to run by spring. :-) And I hope you heal quickly!!!!

    UGH! I’m so sorry to hear about your foot! This seems like a good time to enjoy those pictures and write about those memories – what a trip!

    Ouch! get better soon!

    Can’t wait to hear our travel tips- the trip looks amazing!

    You and that damn foot! I can’t believe you broke it again. At least it happened after your trip, though I imagine that wouldn’t have stopped you from going :)

    It looks like an incredible, completely enviable, once in a lifetime-sort of experience just from these few teaser photos! I can’t wait to hear all about it. But ouch, sorry about the foot. Here’s hoping you have a speedy and painless recovery.

    Welcome back and I cannot wait to hear more about your trip!
    I am sorry about your foot! I am sending you lots of healing vibes!

    Oh Baaaarb! I cannot believe you’ve hurt yourself–by falling, no less! I feel your pain and am prone to these things, as well. It gets better, I promise. It took eight weeks and I am fully back to my running self! I’m sending the healing vibes your way!
