The doctor called me yesterday and told me the radiologist said that it didn’t seem like I had a hairline fracture after all. I most likely have what is called a periosteal reaction. Caused by irritation or injury to the bone. (Hence the weird bump.) Same fix as a broken foot, but I suppose it’s better than actual break.

If my foot still hurts in 4 weeks, then they’ll do another X-ray and perhaps a bone scan. Should prove interesting at Disneyland! My friends suggested I get a motorized wheelchair in Disneyland and then we would get to skip to the front of the line! YEAH!

So, you know, that’s the silver lining?
