my foot is broken

I saw a doctor today and my foot is broken. I’ll get the x-rays up later, but the little piece of a bone on the outside of my foot snapped off. I was almost sure it was broken right when it happened because I pushed on where it hurt and I could hear the free piece of bone clicking against the other bone in my foot. I have a nice blue cast and I’ll be in it for at least 4 weeks. I’m going to see the doctor in about two weeks to get a checkup and make sure its healing straight.
Going to the doctor was kind of fun. I went to a privately owned hospital that is mainly used by wealthier Malaysian citizens and expats. It was all marble. Overall the visit was pretty cheap. Getting the x-rays was about 13 dollars and getting the cast and seeing the doctor was about 200. Its a lot cheaper than it would have been in the states. And I got a free tuna sandwich and instant coffee while I waited for my x-rays.
