I recently had corrective surgery on my left foot. I got stitches out yesterday, which means I finally got to shower today. I get the pins out in a couple more weeks. I'm going to post two pictures here, the first with stitches the second without (and after being washed). Note the lovely colors my foot displays.
I hope to post a picture of the x-ray soon; when I do so, I'll explain the issues I have with my feet and my midget toe :)
I recently volunteered to scan a bunch of pictures for my mother. She wanted digital copies and I think it's important to keep the pictures, so I volunteered. There are a few pictures of me, and in most of them I have some kind of awesome outfit on. I have done my best to spare the feelings of others and I have mostly cropped them out. My sister makes an appearance in several of these shots, I don't think she would mind too much that I'm sharing these... I guess we'll have to wait and see her response. My brother and mom both make appearances as well, but the main feature of this post is my awesome fashion sense. Please, take a minute to really take in the many wonderful elements of each outfit. I'll point out some of my favorite things about each.
This is the part where you all breathe a sigh of relief because I have better taste in clothes now, right? Well... I realized as I was putting this slideshow together that what I'm currently wearing isn't much better.
Alrighty folks, here's the news. I did a post not too long ago that mentioned the issues I've had with my feet rebelling against me. I had surgery on Thursday to correct a couple of the issues, namely two hammertoes. In order to fix this, they had to shave down the bone at a couple of the joints and put a pin through the bones in my toes to make sure everything heals properly.
I am not supposed to put any weight on that foot. With the pins where they are and everything just starting to heal, it hurts to even think about bumping my foot.
I've often regaled listeners with my tales of gracefulness in life. Usually there is a comparison between me and a baby giraffe on ice. That being said, I am terrible at crutches. Also, since I have strangely not-quite-flat feet, it is difficult to balance on one foot for more than 10 seconds. I have managed to slam my foot into a couple things and to fall on my recovering foot while trying to rearrange my crutches. It takes talent.
On the bright side, I have an amazing husband who has been here helping me, cleaning the apartment, taking care of the pets, and making delicious for the last few days.
Also, after I recover from this surgery, I may be able to walk like a normal human being. Aaaand! After a couple more surgeries, the majority of my foot issues will have been corrected.
I know you all love to hear about my feet, so I'll keep you updated. Maybe I'll draw you pictures later. :)
