Part of the song goes: 'I am free to run, I am free to dance,' I love this song and when my doctor took my stitches out today and said I can wash my foot in a few more days and I can put on a shoe as tolerated and begin putting weight on my foot.
Well, I wanted to shout these words so out loud! I am free!!
But then I knew he would think I would overdo and probably cancel my freedom.
So, I came home and decided, I need a nap and what better time to put my shoe on and see how it feels.
My plans for today:
- Have lunch
- Put my shoe on
- Take a nap
- Use my walker with shoe on to put light weight on my foot
Yes, I am free to do as I want. But with freedom comes a huge responsibility and that is to do as the doctor says or I may lose my freedom for longer than I want to.
I made it when I initially broke my ankle living alone with 3 little ones and help from neighbors...lets see that was 8 weeks in a cast, 3 more months in a boot and months of physical therapy that I did not like. But I did what I was told.
I can do this, it will be a piece of cake!
Thank you all for your kind words, prayers and support!
