I Broke My FOOT

So now I am in a Miami-J collar AND a post-op shoe. I have a broken foot and a black eye on TOP of my recovering from my 3 lvl ACDF surgery. Will the fun never end?
I was walking to my kitchen yesterday morning. I had my collar off because I was changing the pads. It was a little dark and I was looking for the little hallway light we have. So I was leaning to look for that and BAM right into the wall.
I hit really hard and was stunned. I went back to the bathroom and looked in the mirror and my eye was swelling shut and was already BLACK. My vision was really fuzzy. I didn't realize at that time that my foot was hurt. I was so freaked out about my neck. So I got dressed and went to put on a shoe and OH MY GOSH, I knew then I was in trouble. :''(
Hubby is out of town, so I limp to the car and drive to the hospital and tell them what happened and they got me right back. Good thing he was out of town or they probably would have arrested him the way I looked! :))(
They x-rayed my face, neck and foot. No orbital fracture, my neck is fine, but my foot is broken.
So I am in a post-op shoe which I ALSO get to sleep in and I'm back with a walker because I can't use crutches. And also back on pain meds. Plus, I just started back to work and I had to call and tell I couldn't come in AGAIN!
Good Lord!
