A chip off the old bone

I went to see the doctor today to talk about foot surgery. This was going to be a very simple procedure to remove a bone chip which was sitting just below the skin, but now, after the MRI, it's going to involve cutting the bone, repositioning it, and a cast and crutches and a lot longer recovery time.

All the complications are probably due to walking on the foot for two and a half years while it's been f*cked up. And much of that is due to having no health insurance for a good chunk of that time.

It's a good thing that we have the finest health care system in the world. Imagine if it was a really *crappy* system. (Yes, that was sarcasm.)
