My poor feet....

Feet up and iced!
I had my double foot surgery yesterday.  Had to have them done together.. for insurance reasons; but in all reality, they never would have gotten me to go back a second time. :-)  I was too busy the past week to be scared... until yesterday morning after my ride left and I was alone getting ready for surgery.  I started shaking and then, as usual when I'm nervous, I started talking.  So once again, I made lots of friends through out the day! :-)

The adventure home was first trying to keep my feet dry, because it SNOWED while I was at the surgery center.  Then almost falling out of the wheelchair trying to get into the car.. wow.  The nurse thought I laughed because I was a little loopy... nope!  Things like that happen all the time to me and I always laugh at my daily mishaps.  It's much better than crying or getting upset. :-)

On the way to the pharmacy for much needed meds; I was treated for ice cream.  As my 4 year old niece said on the channel 6 news last Friday 'video link here'... Yum!! :-)   

I was going to stay on the love seat in my living room, keeping my feet up and iced is easier there.  Until a Hugh raccoon came up to the patio door  around 11pm and stared at me for a very long time.  He or she freaked me out a little, so I finally went to my own bed and got some sleep, thank goodness. 

Today I am back on the love seat and watching the birds, squirrels and deer out my patio door.  Living in such a beautiful and peaceful place will surely help me heal even faster.  I so love my new home!!

It's hard for me to stay inside and not be running around busy most of the day; however I have lots to keep me occupied until I go to the doctor on Monday morning and then back to work.  

I have my laptop which I love even 2 years later; and the new Iphone 4s to play with.   I just got it a week ago.  I've never had a 'smart' phone before so this is super cool to me.   

Have any of you had partial joint replacement surgery in your feet, or any where else?  I'd love to hear your stories and recovery advice.


  1. Sounds like stay off your feet is the best advice. And no dancing.

  2. Ouchy!! Keep your feet up, for sure. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!!

  3. Stay off your feet...lay back and enjoy...the best you can. Alex is right; no dancing allowed!

  4. That looks painful! Take care and get some rest!

  5. Oh you poor girl! Well I would say get lots of rest, watch lots of movies, drink lots of tea, and eat lots of cookies. :)

    Get well my my friend!

  6. Nope no joint replacement but I need one in my thumb. What DeanO mean "No dancing?" You can chair/couch dance.

    and that raccoon just came to check on you, he heard you had ice cream. :)

  7. God will be with you always. Do not worry

  8. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Glad to hear that you can laugh at life's little mishaps...that certainly helps things go much more smoothly. Hope you're doing well! :D

  9. I feel for you. Hope you're having a speedy recovery.
