Call Me... Captain Ahab?

Yeah. My foot's a removable cast. It's to help my sesamoid (not related to the sesame seed) bone heal.

Oh. What the hell's a sesamoid bone? Well, check out the drawings to the left and above, as well as this article.

In any case, I've been clumping around like Captain Ahab, and will continue to do so for another two VERY long weeks. On the plus side, unlike a conventional cast, I get to take this stupid thing off when I shower, go to bed, or know I'll be sitting and watching TV for a while. It also allows me to ice the area, as it really swells up over time!
