Sunday 1/2/11 I managed to fall and scrape my left leg real good. I’d post a picture but that would be disgusting. Being diabetic I take extreme measures to keep my feet safe and protected, so I thought. Sunday night my wife left the laundry basket at the bottom of the stairs for me to carry up. I turned the light off in the living room and forgot about the basket and managed to fall right over it, or more likely through it.
Since the basket is made from thick plastic it broke and took about 8.5 inches by 1 inch of skin below the shin and when I got up I stepped on a sharp piece of broken plastic and cut under my right foot as well. So I did a great job of putting both legs in danger.
I just got back from the doctor a few hours ago and she said the infection hasn’t spread and my foot looks good so I am on Cephalexin now for 10 days and this will hopefully heal quickly.
It makes walking to work really interesting…
