Some Days Are Better Than Others
And this is NOT one of them.
For those of you that have been following the very boring saga of my heel problems, today at my follow up appointment, I received the final verdict.
Sadly, it did not. I still have a great amount of pain anytime I walk, and especially going up or down steps.
In addition to that, I've worn an immobilization boot on the left heel for eight weeks now, with little or no results in that heel.
The verdict: There is nothing else the doctors can do other than major surgery, on one or both of my heels. As my doctor explained it to me, it is a very incapacitating surgery that has a fairly long and complicated recovery.
I came home and did some research to learn and see pictures of what this surgery entails, and I've decided I'll spare you the not so pretty photos.
It is what it is, and I will do what I must do. So there.
I'm trying to keep a positive outlook on things as they are. There are several other people that are on my heart these days, because they have health situations so much worse than mine, and if you are a praying person, these folks sure need your prayers:
I appreciate your thoughtfulness and I'm sure their families will too.
This roof is in bad shape and has been on deck to be replaced as soon as weather allows it to be done. However, the wind moved this project up to critical status, and currently the husband/lover/handyman is up there covered in tar and doing what he can with the help of a wonderful neighbor.
So yes, some days are better than others.
And we still have about seven more hours in this day.
