I had eye surgery 10 days ago and am not supposed to bend over or look down too much. So I was going to mow the yard and the first thing I have to do is get all the dog toys off the grass. So I started kicking them across the yard so I wouldn’t have to bend down to pick them up. Unfortunately I did not know there was a small, very unmovable tree stump behind one of the toys. So yes, I kicked the toy and my toe neatly connected with the tree stump and I saw stars for a few minutes. Lots of blood and limping. Another thing about the eye surgery–I’m supposed to sleep on 2-3 pillows to limit the swelling. I had 3 pillows under my head and 3 under my throbbing foot and the dogs are all looking at me like they need various things.

Six pillows were not enough.
