one year later!!!

Hi everyone, it has been six long months since my last post! My one year ATR anniversary was on June 8th and things are looking pretty good, although portions of my scar are as ugly as @#$#. My pregnancy went really well, except that the extra 42 pounds I put on [...]

Preggers again!!

Hi everyone,  it has been quite some time since my last post and things are progressing nicely.  I can do two legged toe raises easily and can get my heel about 1/2 inch off the floor in a single toe raise on my bad leg.  I have even managed to run across the street several times [...]

New Pain at 16 weeks?????

Things have been going fairly well the last four weeks at PT.  I am walking with a limp but much less than before, and I can extend my knee past my toes while my heel is still flat.  The surgeon told me yesterday that was fairly good progress in terms of flexibility considering I was [...]

Feeling Down and Out

hello all,  I have been fairly upbeat and optimistic over the last 15 weeks and not yet even had a good cry over all of this nonsense.  My husband is a “suck it up”  kind of guy and isn’t particularly interested in listening to me vent about how frustrated I am.  In the past week [...]

I have Osteo what????

Hi everyone,  things have been going fairly well at PT and I am making slow but steady progress.  Immediately following my surgery 13 weeks ago, I  had significant loss of sensation down the right side of my right foot all the way to my pinkie toe, and still cant feel anything.  I have also had [...]

Oh how wonderful it is!!

Went to my PT appointment yesterday and was told to ditch the boot, so I celebrated and bought myself a brand new pair of running shoes on the way home.  Boy did it feel weird to have a shoe on that foot.  It didn’t hurt, just felt really weird.  I wore the shoes all evening [...]

When did you start to drive again??

I have a right ATR and am 12 weeks post-op today.  I have 3 kids, and a million appointments a week (3 just for PT and then all the kids activities)  My dad has been driving across the city almost everyday and been taking me to all of my appointments but I feel really bad.  [...]

Long drive but worth it!

Well, after deciding to stay home and tend to my brand new PT, my husband and kids convinced me to go on vacation for a week.  It was fun but exhausting.  After driving 3.5 hours from Sudbury to Toronto, we took the four hour flight to Calgary Alberta and spent the day,  The rest of [...]

Wow, that is really really gross!

Hi everyone,  finally got the cast off this morning after a total of almost 11 weeks in fibreglass including pre-op.  Now I get to deal with the snakeskin that seems to have grown on my leg and especially my heel during that time.  When I got home an hour ago, I took off my boot [...]

I win, I win, I win!!!

Yes, I did it, I am walking FWB before my baby. Ha!  Ha! Ha!  But it was pretty close and he still wins the cuteness award big time.  Anyway, the fibreglass finally comes off it two days and I get the boot! Yay, and in six days I finally start PT.  Ten weeks in a cast [...]
