Well, it’s been a while, but I’m still just as excited as I was on the day it happened!

I’ve been in TWO SHOES (with not even a sliver of a wedge!) since Monday, January 14th.  That was also the day I saw my surgeon, who was very pleased with my progress.

Physical therapy has been going great!  Last week, I started “landing”.  Still not able to do a single heel raise.  But once I’m up on my toes with both feet, I can shift my weight to my right (injured) leg, and do pulses and can balance on my right toes for a few seconds.  So continued progress that I’m happy with!

I’m doing some light yoga, started hiking again a few weeks ago, and have done a barefoot walk on the beach.  This Friday will be 17 weeks post-op.  The time is finally starting to not seem so slow-going any longer.

I constantly remind myself to stay positive and be grateful.  And have shifted my mindset to this injury happened “for” me, not “to” me.  It’s not always easy, but when I think of all of the positive things that have happened in my life since this occurred, I know it truly did happen for me.

The road ahead will probably never be the same as it would have been without this injury, but I’m ready for it nonetheless! :)

  1. Hi Tima,

    That is a very insightful concept, to start believing the injury happened “for me.”

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. The positive thinking was very infectious.
