Recovering - week 7

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

The home stretch - my foot is doing good, I'm very excited. I go back to the surgeon this week for more x-rays to see how the bone has healed.

I've been a prisoner in my sneakers for about 18-19 hours per day (really need to get more sleep, lol). Granted, it's nice to wear them at work although they don't really match any dress pants that I own. My office has been very patient with me during this process. Thanks to them for being so patient!

I'm walking well enough to have re-aggravated my gimpy knee. Ok, fine, I broke the rules and took my dogs for two longer walks. One yesterday and the other one the week before. So while the foot feels mostly good, the knee, not so much but I really need to get moving! TWO MORE DAYS UNTIL THE X-RAYS.

My knee guy spoke to the foot guy and I am good to start rehabbing the knee this week, so there are two pt appointments set up for this. Yay! Or so I say now....when I'm there, maybe not so much, lol. Torture.

Happy to report that the incision has finally healed! Whew! Only took 6 1/2 weeks or so. If I do any type of foot surgery in the future, I'm going to be high maintenance and sit like a princess on the sofa and see how long it takes for it to heal then.

So...I'm very excited to go back for x-rays and see if I will be 'set free'. I had an appointment last week where the scale indicated way to much weight....so if nothing else, there has to be an elliptical or something in my near future. No more of talk about weight gain, lol!

Attaching a picture from a week ago. My feet got to hang out by the pool and soak up some sun. See, there are a few princess moves.....

Weeks to walking: 1 week.

Weeks to running: 2 weeks.

    They are looking purdy! I'm counting the days to when you're able to start running again.
