The clouds outside of my Texas home are bunched up like soiled cotton balls, Mother Nature trying to brew up some rain clouds but not quite¬† sure she wants to do that …..I know because there are spaces of bright blue and off from the southwest the sun is shining through….there must be a big [...]

Hello all,

Well hi there….here it is Tuesday of Week 3…peeking around the corner to the Wednesday start of week 4. I’ve been away for a few days….count that as a blessing for yourselves! Actually I spent the weekend with my mom in San Antonio (which was wonderful….aside from the fact that I missed dad [...]

Hey Everyone…
So yep as I hinted to in my short earlier post, yesterday was Week 3 post-surgery and I went and had the stitches taken out….snip, snip, snip…..didn’t hurt at all. That was preceded by the heavenly removal of that stone vice that was around my foot and lower leg. The cast is gone! [...]

I’m sitting here as I have been for the last 3 weeks with my foot propped up on pillows and a cold pack under my knee…..and occasionally mentioning that my hip on the ‘good’ side is hurting from all the abuse it is taking holding up my body when I move or use the walker/knee [...]

Last night while talking to my mom (who lives 2 hours from me), I learned that she and my sister & brother-in-law were going to watch my great nephew play soccer this morning and then going back to my niece’s house to play cards….and here I sat with my casted leg elevated in pretty [...]

Today is the 1st day into my 3rd week…woooo hoooo! Next Wednesday which will be the completion of 3 weeks. I go to get my stitches out and hopefully into my boot. I know it will feel awesome to get out of this cast. The days that have past since I last posted [...]

Wow, this immobility has really gotten to be today. I am on the 2nd day of the 2nd week and you’d think by now that I would have this all figured out and know that this was just temporary; that before long I’ll look back on this and laugh. But boy oh boy, [...]

Today was the day I was looking forward to having the cast removed even if just for a little while so my foot could breath and my toes could wiggle….and the doc could say "it looks great–healing just fine". Well all those things happened but when I planned my trip to the doctor’s office [...]
