As you can see, I didn't get a cast, but I do have to go see an orthopedist in the beginning of next week. I wanted to post the x-ray of my foot, but I couldn't open it on the disk the doctor gave me. Anyway,
I got back just before midnight, and went back over to my neighbors' house, where Kiira and Hana had already fallen asleep. I came home for a minute to let the dogs out, rinse my sprouts, and make my senna tea, and then headed over there to sleep with them. Since I wasn't at home in the morning, I didn't get to do my salt water flush, so I opted to start the day with a cup of peppermint tea; nevertheless, I am still amazed at how much is coming out of me! Where is it coming from!??!
When we got home, I made myself a lemonade, and then a while later decided to go for the orange juice. In my opinion, there is nothing quite like fresh pressed orange juice, even when one hasn't been fasting. I feel a little sorry for all the people who come off their Master Cleanses and start drinking boxed orange juice, even if it is the Not-From-Concentrate stuff. No problems with the orange juice, so over the next few hours I squeezed a couple more small glasses. I noticed myself feeling a bit hungry. Later that afternoon I started getting tired of the o.j. and decided to press one of the long awaited cantaloupes. Oh, my goodness... now this was heaven! (The fruit flies were in complete agreement.) I set a humane trap for the fruit flies using a bit of the cantaloupe peel for the bait, cleaned up the kitchen a bit and sat down. It had probably been less than 20 minutes when I noticed my lip starting to puff up in a hive. I wasn't getting the more usual and superficial body hives that I get, but rather the more annoying kind where they pop up more under my skin. Rats. Right at that moment a friend of mine called saying that he would be picking me up in 20 minutes to go for a boat ride, so I decided to pop a Claritin. Now I am a little scared to try the rest of the cantaloupes, because I have really been hoping that I am not sensitive to salicylate- cantaloupes are high in salicylate- and I would really, really hate to give up fresh cantaloupe juice! I guess I will just have to drink up while the antihistamine is still working today ;)
