Countdown to surgery

March 24, 2016

So, it happened again, albeit not as severe as the first one but bad enough that I am going under the knife again. Back in 2008 I had a rupture of my left Achilles due to trying to be a hero at softball. 8 weeks NWB and then the shock of having to learn to walk again, was something that I was hoping I would never, ever have to go through again. Then ,being in the Bledsoe boot for what seemed like an eternity was not fun either. There is a silver lining to this ruptured cloud, this time I will not have to go through this again, and this time the surgery will be on my terms.

I know how bad it was last time, and how lonely and helpless that I felt. I found this blog and will blog my adventures, not just for my amusement, but since this will be my second time going under the knife I feel that I should give back to the community that helped me through before. I know it is a long recovery, and something that  I never wanted to go through again but hopefully having this blog as an outlet will give me something to look forward to as well as the prospect of a new boot!!
