Unfortunately the gel did not help and I had another really bad night. Eventually at 3am I took more pain killers (along with a glass of wine) and I managed to get to sleep. Rachel was a star in the morning and got breakfast sorted and kept the girls playing quietly so that I could sleep in till 10am. What a difference 6 hours of sleep make. The swelling is almost completely down but I still get waves of intense pain. I look at this photo and wonder how so much pain can be caused by something that does not even look that bad. The pain still covers the front half of my foot. So it was good to have a quiet day today and the girls were very good.
