Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
How are you all doing today?
Things are continuing as normal, well, at least as normal as they can be at this point. I ended up at urgent care this past weekend to have them check into my toe. While I had thought it was getting better, I woke up early on Saturday morning in extraordinary pain. I couldn’t walk on it, so it was a call to the nurses line who recommended going to urgent care.
The x-ray showed that part of my bone had broken off, but everything looked like it was still aligned (official reading: There is an acute intra-articular fracture of the medial base of proximal phalanx of the fifth toe. The smaller marginal fracture fragment is offset 1.5 mm, slightly rotated. Joint alignment is intact. Joint space width is preserved”)
The theory is that I had a hairline fracture, but something happened with how my foot moved at some point which finished the break. So, I guess at least I have strong muscles and ligaments in my foot?
Other than that excitement it’s been a bit of up and down this week. I’m dealing with some things around my layoff, and prepping for the summer term (which starts in a few weeks). But I also got word that I got an internship position at my local library for the summer, and was encouraged by one of my professors to apply for a leadership position in one of our Student Associations, both of which are really exciting opportunities.
No matter what happens, my summer is going to be a busy and interesting one. Though my area is starting to explore the possibility of entering some early stages of opening up again I will be largely remaining at home and remaining at a distance from people – I don’t want to risk it until we have a lot more clarity about transmission, treatment, and risk factors.
How are you doing? What have you been up to? What are things looking like in your area?
