Pleasently Suprised

Nineteen days post surgery and I have to say things are going better then I anticipated. My family has been very supportive and without them this situation would be much worst. My wife and two boys have been willing to help me out anytime I ask for assistance. Also, I went back to work this week and was shocked on how nice perfect strangers have been. Everytime I have to deal with some type of obstacle (doors) there seems to be somebody going out of thier way to help me. Being acceptative of help takes a little getting use to but the kindness that I have been recieving is very heart warming.

The only thing that I am really concerned about at this time is swelling (ball shape) on the top of my foot that does not want to go away. I have been getting around with one crutch and heel walking on my boot in the house. I feel a little tingling in the incisison but no pain. I am a little concern that I am pushing recovery but I am following the instructions from my doctor.

Side note: A little something that has helped this process is finally getting serious about watching what I eat. I was concerned about gaining more weight since my injury so I started tracking my calories. Well it has been a good feeling to have “control” over something during this recovery. I have used “My Fitness” app on my Droid to help keep track of my calorie intake. I have notice the weight loss and it gives me something to focus my energy at rather then constantly being concerned about the injury.
