Getting excited that I can actually count on one and and really an additional finger (HAHAHAHA) the days left to get this old boot off my person! I have been waiting to say only a week left for awhile now!!!! Now, only 6 days left! Yahoooo!
Sometimes it's hard to find a bright spot in bad situations. Without trying to sound like Positive Polly Anna's best friend all the time....I think I will be ever grateful for this experience of a broken ankle...What? I'm crazy? let me explain. I have truly seen such kindness in people. Amazing friends helping us in so many ways...calling to check in on us, sending emails and amazing comments! I am forever honored and grateful! Then there is the perfect stranger...I cannot tell you how many times total strangers have opened doors, picked up stuff I've dropped, helped me into my car and the list goes on. People do have great and caring hearts....I am so blessed...
Next Wednesday, Sept. 25, I will go to the doctor and hopefully get the "Amen" that the break has healed and will continue to heal. I promise you all and myself right here and now... I will NEVER wear flip flops again and I will certainly NEVER walk into a mud puddle with them on! My days of flip flops are over and orthopedic shoes are here! HAHAHAHA!
I was talking to a nurse on Monday at the hospital. I was telling her how happy I was to have this boot off and I was looking forward to wearing my Tennis Shoes ON BOTH FEET and start PT to learn how to walk again. Well, friends she leveled me....She said that they would probably put me in a walking boot next....I was a little down about this new revelation for about 5 seconds when I remembered...I will be WALKING ON TWO FEET! Whatever it takes! I absolutely cannot wait to walk from really, one table to another to grab things in my studio. I mean ALL those little things we take for granted from watering the plants, walking over to pick up the phone when it rings, getting dressed, getting your own gas (personally, I could do without this little luxury...I hate to fill up my car!) sweeping the floor and mowing the grass! What bliss! I honestly, honestly cannot wait!
So keep your fingers crossed...Next Wednesday is PAR-TAY DAY! Wednesday is TWO FEET DAY! YAHOOOO! I will finally feel like everything is back to normal...or as normal as it gets in my life anyway....LOL! I may have to go slow and take care, but FREEDOM from this VELCRO-ed Hell...PRICELESS!
Y'all have a most excellent day!
Thanks For Coming By!
