Plates of Meat – Part Two

Got my head together now, the shopping is done, house clean and tidy, lists written.. the only thing I havent done is the ironing which can go f**k itself frankly ūüėÄ

I am now back¬†at the stage where the operation itself¬†doesn’t faze¬†me in the slightest, it will be like a long dentist visit, I am still wrestling a little with the recovery though. This is for two reasons.. one is just good old-fashioned¬†vanity, I have always had lovely feet, they are one of my best features.¬†The Mothership made us wear Clark’s¬†“Mary Jane’s”¬†and so my toes are all in a perfect diagonal line.¬† By this time tomorrow my big toe will be the same height as it’s neighbour ūüė¶¬†¬† I know it’s silly but I really hate that although I will have to buy new, smaller shoes.. *perks up a bit*

The other reason is worry about my neck. I am to use crutches for 8 weeks. Although my feet hurt 24/7, most of the pain I suffer is in my neck, it cripples me. Any use of my arms or head sets off the pain.  Quite how I will cope with crutches is beyond me.  I spoke to my GP about it last week who is chasing up the physiotherapy I ve been waiting for since August.  He suggested I speak to the hospital tomorrow, which I will do. 

My lovely neighbour has offered to source a wheelchair so that she can take me out,¬† she is TINY, quite how she will cope with pushing me I don’t know! I have visions of her puffing and panting, beetroot red with effort and me ending up stranded until a big strapping man can be found to save me.. ooh, now there’s a thought ; )

I’ve taken some pics of my feet as they are now, I’ll probably blog from the hospital tomorrow and definitely take more photos as the weeks go on.¬† It will be a big help I think for others having the same operation.

Right, I’d better go sort that ironing out!¬† *searches for a big hole to drop it in*
