The Power Of Positive Thinking

I had foot surgery exactly 14 days ago. Bunions, 4 toes straightened. Owowowowowow! I had this done about 10 years ago, but wasn't able to get it done on the other foot until now. And the first thing that came flying out of my mouth when I woke up after surgery was, "Where's my cast?????????"

Yeah. They don't do that anymore. And 14 days later, I found myself walking with only one crutch as opposed to being off my feet and in casts for weeks and weeks. It might have been almost 8 weeks. And that is what my doctor insisted on.

But can I say how happy I am about this? It wasn't any less painful, but I'm walking already. It feels miraculous! Dr. Chan was beaming when I went in last week for my 1st check up. This was a difficult surgery because it had gone too long - he wasn't sure it was going to go as well as I was hoping. But it looks like I am a very lucky lady and everything looks great! So I was not working all this time, and today I got up and cut out some fabric and started photographing fun little things to post in my Etsy store. Ive been meditating on healing quickly. I know people have been praying for me. And soon I will be able to start wearing cute shoes again. (staying away from heels for a while).

It wasn't all about the shoes by any means..........but shoes make an outfit. We all know that. Onwards and Upwards!
