Thanks, babe, for your input. It IS painful, but the swelling is going down very nicely. I've been staying off my feet since it happened and I'm seeing the benefit of that. I rested much more comfortably last night. Didn't even have to take any Excedrin.

Still going to keep low today. Probably sit in the recliner, with legs elevated, and read or knit. Glenn's been sweet and has been doing a lot of extra "stuff" to help out. Turned the bed down again last night and helped me get comfortable.

Today I'm trying some pain creme from Tylenol called Precise. Slathered a bunch of it on after my morning shower. So far I think I'm feeling some relief. BUT...I'm going to be very, very careful the next several days.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I'm still kicking...but not as high.


Alix, I'm glad you have the electronics gremlins at bay. Maybe it was sunspots!!!!

They could see that red gleem in your eye as you walked away.

I took it very easy with dinner tonight. Salad from a bag, pre-breaded frozen deep fried shrimp, rice-a- roni, canned corn. In other words garbage. My family raved about it. Loved every bite. Went back for seconds. Very complimentary. Real food is wasted on them. GRRRRR!!!!

That seems to me to be the retired person's version of "Vacation." Hope you had a relaxing week!

Sounds like a classic case of spring fever!

Hopefully all this mess will be taken care of soon and you will be able to get all your stuff.
Thank you for the flowers.

I got lucky. My sister was working from home on Friday and managed to get the certified true copies. If she had been at work, she wouldn't have been near the right court house. She sent it by Fedex yesterday and I looked at the tracking and it is at the airport, here in QC. w00t!

Geeze, hardly even enough time to generate enough steam for a really good rant!

I'm glad to hear the swelling is going down. Being careful is a good idea.

If it hurts, don't do it. Mother Nature wasn't being a meany when she invented pain. She invented pain to tell us, "Don't do that! If you do, you will make it worse."

I know what's going on here! I watch movies! You walked temporarily into another dimension. You thought you were in your own home, but in that dimension things do not work like they do in ours. I hear that your alter-ego came into our dimension and was up in arms because everything was working. Bwuahahaha!
