Since many of asked what is up?...I will try and make it brief.
I am 8 weeks past surgery. The pain in the foot is MUCH better, but when I had to wear the BOOT--it really did some RUIN to my back and hips. I also had something happen in my right knee....so I went for more MRI's....
There are some tears in the miniscus. I have to get referred to a orthopedic surgeon (VERY SAD FACE )...my right ankle has much wrong with it, but does not need surgery.
I am in different lace up (ugly) braces to keep the ankles stable. I am trying hard to find comfortable and supportive shoes, so far I am trying out the New Balance 927.
........I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. I can barely walk any distance without the pain in my back being excruciating, where I will break out in a sweat. We bought a wheel chair off of Craig's list for $100.00, just so now and then I can *get out*. I am not sleeping much yet, the knee pain seems to wake me up...aaARGH !!!!!
I had one really LOW, low day. I know it is the prayers of the saints that have upheld me.
Let me tell you what I dislike about ALL of this:
You become so self focused.
You can't sometimes help it as the pain controls you. The meds mess with your mind (at least for me) sometimes. I feel like it has made me so narcisstic. I feel like I fight it. I know life is NOT "ALL ABOUT ME". I don't want it to be. Then the flip side is I find myself getting very hard on myself...those nagging voices....come on we ALL have them.
Yet.....I still still KNOW, this is nothing in the scheme of things. Jesus is allowing this, it could all be WORSE and WORSER and even WORSER....I know this. So with all that being said. Can I end this saying : I am fine....I am saved and going to Heaven one day...and whatever the future holds I know it is for my good. I appreciate you all so much and hope to start catching up on all of your blogs. I hope this hasn't been too much information...
