Cast is off. Stitches are out. No sign of infection. Lots of swelling, but that will diminish.
Doctor was happy with my progress.
Happy, happy, happy.
I now have a 10 degree range of motion with my bendable brace. The goal: 180 degrees. I've got a ways to go, but I am determined.
My friend N. who has a new business of foot care for the elderly practiced on my feet yesterday. I felt very pampered. It was wonderful, except for the fact that my feet are so ticklish, I kept pulling back from her.
I explained to another friend what N. does.
"So, does she give you a pedophile?"
No. she most certainly does not.
Not even a pediCURE.
Simply a trim, a buffing off of callouses and a good soaking followed up with lotion.
It was a sweet gift of love and compassion.
AND, as if that weren't enough (and it was!), she brought us a delicious supper.
We are so blessed.
