Back to work!

It's time to go back to work and it feels as if I've been off for months...I went for my follow up on Thursday and thankfully things are looking good. My surgeon is really pleased with the surgery and the recovery has gone really well. Besides some swelling, my foot's doing great - I don't even need physical therapy. As you can see in the pic, the cut is a lot smaller than the others and thankfully it's off to the side of my foot so it doesn't hurt when I walk. Now we just have to wait for the swelling to go down and hope to see the results in about 4 to 6 weeks.

My biggest problem throughout recovery is the same as always, my leg pain. Unfortunately, the medicine that I was so excited about hasn't been working as well as it was before everything got messed up...I am hoping that going back to my routine, things will fall into place...what a sweet life it was when it worked!

On a completely unrelated note, my mom sent me this amazing video .... we should all strive to be a little more like this, help our brother/sister in need when they are HERE to see.
