The first photo was taken just two weeks ago, it was right before my cortisone shot. The next photo was taken about 3 days post cortisone shot.
This is the 3 days post cortisone shot again....and then about 10 days post shot.....
The improvement in my foot feels as dramatic as it looks.....
So in my excitement over feeling better, I decided to start training for a 5K. Randy was pretty much outraged and thought it may have been one of my worst ideas ever, and I have had some bad ones.
So I reluctantly called my doctor and left a message with the nurse, who called me back within the hour to tell me it was indeed a bad idea. She talked to the doctor who said running a 5K in March would increase my risk of re-injury and I should not run one before June and encouraged me to wait until September and suggested that I elliptical, swim, walk, or bike for a while first. So still no running for me!
On another note:
I'm super excited about Christmas! I feel like I missed it last year. I was so drugged and out of it. So I'm ready to celebrate. I'm really thankful for all the friends that have stood by my side through this last year. I'm thankful for you inviting me to limp along on all our fun adventures and never being annoyed at me for being so slow. You guys are the best! I'm thankful for how well you loved us and fed us and cared for us in the months immediately following surgery!
I'm so blessed!
PS Someone may want to mention my desperate need for a pedicure to Randy as a possible Christmas gift!
