Cheers to Getting Better

Thank God everything in life passes...and I am sooo thankful that the excruciating pain I felt a couple of weeks ago is gone. My old pains are back and I can't tell you how happy I am to be just having my regular pains...LOL. Sometimes life really puts things in perspective for you!!!

It has been 3 months since my surgery now and I continue to reach dusting off my car (literally) and going for a ride. My car sat for so long that a spider decided to keep it company and build its home there!

In honor of my 3 months, John and I went to celebrate by having lunch at Olive Garden...OH MY! How I missed their food!!!!!!!!! To say I pigged out is an understatement. After our wonderful lunch, we went shoe shopping because I am tired of wearing the same pair of sneakers every day. I asked one of the shoe store employees to give me one of those foot measuring things so I could figure out my shoe size once and for all. shock wasn't to find out my NEW shoe size, it was to find out how little my original feet really became.

In high school, I used to wear a 6.5. Well, this weekend we found out, my right foot is a size THREE!!!!!!!!! 3...TRES...III...TROIS...TRE!!! Isn't that a child's size? No wonder shoe shopping has always been a dreaded event for me...and my new shoe size is a 6, which is nice, it's average. It should be easier for me to find shoes from now on and I left the store with a new pair of sneakers :)

Having surgery and recovering during the summer is definitely not one of the easiest things...I am constantly icing my foot to keep the swelling down, it's so hard to match my cute summer outfits with sneakers or my boot, I am definitely not wearing flip flops outside in this heat...but on the upside it's one summer of my life. And I'm hoping by next summer I have two pretty new feet to flaunt. celebrate that my funky mood is gone and that I am walking and that life is good and 3 months went by quickly and my next surgery is on the horizon and the excruciating pains are gone and my new size 6 foot and that I'm lucky to be alive...cheers to getting better!
