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 😀
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 😦 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*
