Everything hurts/Doesn't work
Orthopedist: *palpates ankle and foot*
Me: "OW" at appropriate points.
Orthopedist: "...that's not where your ligament is. That's bone."

So the reason my ankle wasn't getting any better even though I was wearing the air splint religiously is that I do not *have* a sprained ankle, I have a broken foot. Or bone bruise. They apparently get the same treatment, so we're doing that treatment - seriously heavy-duty boot to stabilize my entire foot, not just my ankle.

If I'm not seeing improvement in two weeks, I get an MRI to figure out why. But I'll be in the boot for a month, best-case scenario.


Related: Am looking for a ride to the Beginning of Summer party, because haha am not navigating the T all the way to Melrose with a broken foot.

Otherwise things are good - I am SO EXCITED about some of the poems we've gotten at Liminality, it's been good to see K again, and Elayna's partner Aza is visiting. And I had a great meeting with my doctor today about my whole genome sequencing, which I am seriously geeking out about.

I have my final Pi-Con schedule, which I'll post tomorrow, and my preliminary Readercon schedule.

I still don't have a pony. Which is really an appalling oversight on Adam's part, I think.

Many more things, but my brain is tired. Tomorrow. *nod*

You have a gimpy foot, too? Me too. Quit trying to copy me just to be cool.

Also, ow.

Subdued yay for more accurate diagnosis. Best wishes.

I'm sorry to hear it. I was in one of those last year this time, you have my empathies. Hope it heals quickly and fully.

The Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) is a very nifty tool for visualizing genomic data, and just before I stopped working there, they had added a bunch of WGS functionality. You can do all sorts of things, particularly zooming in on particular sequences and looking at annotations and such like.

I suspect Adam worries the pony would step on the healthy foot and break some part of it. Thus, the delay.
