  1. Hang in there my beautiful friend. Remember that sometimes it feels like the pain will last forever. But nothing in life stays the same. That’s one thing we can count on in life in change. Your foot won’t hurt forever. I love you! You’re gonna get through this!

    1. Thank you Sarah! I hope you’re right. I’m not going to lie, I’m a negative nancy and moaning molly about it right now. Doom and gloom baby.

  2. First, I never noticed how awesome your picture was across the top. Is that from your wedding?

    Next, no doubt eventually you’ll bring the pain to heel. I handle bad situations with humor…. I hope you like laughing. Because that’s the best way to heal. Sorry, I’m putting my foot in my mouth. I think I’m done now.

    Praying for you 🙂 Remember, if the kids act up a cane against the back of the knee is an amazing motivator. Also, you need to obviously get an epic cane. Like with a crystal or something as the head. Then you’re walking with swagger.

  3. I had surgery on the pad of my foot when we were in public school and I remember it feeling really weird to put weight on and touch even after I “able” to walk on it again. It was worse right at the beginning of the healing process but it got better quickly enough for me to walk without too much discomfort. It still wigs me out for people to touch it and sometimes it just goes numb – for shits and grins suppose – but all in all it doesn’t cause me a whole lot of discernible discomfort on a daily basis.
    I don’t know if that puts your mind at ease at all but I thought maybe it would help to hear that what you’re feeling isn’t completely out of line. It definitely sucks but it’s fairly normal; at least in my experience.

    Would physiotherapy be helpful at this time (while hubs is still local)? Even just to make sure that you’re not going to cause more issues by walking on your toe. I can’t imagine having to learn a new way of walking on a previously injured foot without some assistance from a professional. The time crunch makes it all very stressful!

    1. I asked my doctor if I could get a referral for a PT and he said it wasn’t necessary because I can weight bear “as soon as I’m comfortable.”…whenever that is. I’m gonna ask again when my stitches come out.
