Partly, there hasn't been much happening of anything which makes a good photo, and partly life here is more than a little complicated. But hey ho - such is life. Onwards and upwards and all those things.
Anyway, last Thursday, I went back to hospital for my 6 week check up. After a couple of x-rays, I have been given the all clear. The operation has been a success. I am so relieved as my foot is still quite uncomfortable and walking any distance is slow and awkward. But I can drive again now - although only short distances at first.
I have got to be careful for the next 2 or 3 months as there is a high risk of a stress fracture. So no standing on tip toes or running. But I can go back to my Pilates classes, which I always find so relaxing. And no more visits to hospital required unless I have any queries or problems.
The swelling apparently could take a year to totally go, but "hopefully" (the consultants words not mine) will be pretty much back to normal in 6 months time. Next summer I will be back to wearing flip flops and heels - if I want to. :)
I won't bore you with the shoe shopping experience, but it wasn't quite what I was looking forward to when going to buy my first pair of shoes post op. But I'm now the proud owner of size 7 trainers and ankle boots (I usually only wear a size 5.5 - so one is flapping around a bit! ) Anyway, at least with the weather turning my toes are warm.
Who else wants to put the heating on?
Just in case you fancy looking - here is my mended foot - complete with screws!
Hopefully, later this week I will be able to share something prettier - some crochet maybe?
