I knew that I had broken my foot, and that healing would take some time, but I was completely shocked by the doctor on Monday, when he let me know that surgery was required to piece my bones back together. Because it was an emergency, he added me to the end of the surgery schedule on Wednesday.
Having never had surgery, I was freaked out about it, but it was a hard blow emotionally too. See, I had been getting myself through the worst of it by telling myself that every day I was getting better, and suddenly I was having to start the healing process from the beginning again.
Today, I feel basically good, but am still immobilized. This means that cooking is out of the question for the time being. I’m hoping to feel strong enough to make Thanksgiving as usual. So I’m not totally sure what to do with this space in the near-term, but I’ll try to find something. I may just aggregate interesting posts from around the webz.
Thanks for your well-wishes, and thanks for hanging in there with me!
