|Great news on the car-injury!

The car is still injured (okay, totaled), but I took my foot in to see the doctor. I would've loved to have removed it and left it overnight, but, I had to go in with it.
The doc told me that the numbness, cold, and tingling was due to inflammation pushing on the nerves and veins. "The hospital didn't give you any anti-inflammatories?"
They just told me to stay off of it.
It seems I should've had anti-inflammatories all along. Then she gave her prescription:
"Don't baby it. Don't push it."
With a sprain, it's a balance. Keep it elevated when I can, but she says being too delicate with it could cause problems later down the line.
"Can I drive?" I asked her.
"Well, maybe not on 270. Try it in a parking lot first."
WHOOOOP! This is the opposite of what everyone's been telling me. Life just got so much simpler.
S. looked at my beaming face and said, "I have this image of having to tie you down."
