Cast on.. Cast off..Cast on?

It has been 6 weeks since major foot reconstruction. I was such a good patient and was really good about staying off my foot for the entire time that my surgeon said I could have a surprise...

(ooh gross), No pedi's for 6 weeks!! Yikes

I think my right foot is one size smaller than my left.

  • I took a great bath! I soaked and removed lots of gross "yuck" off my foot.
  • I "Mom cleaned" (my friend Sue's words), the bathroom today. It was the best thing I have done for 6 weeks. I might go in and clean it tomorrow too.
  • I went downstairs for the first time in 6 weeks and did a load of laundry. (I can't carry it up yet, but) it was fun. The family kept it very orderly in there.
  • I cooked an egg sandwich. UMMm good.
  • I went to DILLARD's...Lancome' week. And yes... I bought a new pair of Teva's. And earrings.
  • I went out to Quizno's for dinner with Jordan.
  • I took movies back on my own two feet and two crutches to AdreAnn across the street.
  • I dead-headed some coreopsis flowers.
Okay, I had a great day. Christina felt well enough to go with the youth to the open house of the Oquirrh Mountian Temple. She said it was really beautiful and they had a nice turn out!

Now, I will post tomorrow about the lady who got her cast off the same time I did. It is a story that must go down in the annals of history!

Would it be gross if I said that I just wanted to peel that dead skin off on your ankle? Okay, yeah, that's gross. :)

Glad you got to take a bath and you have some freedom now.

But the orange was so you! :)
I'm glad that you can start resuming parts of your life again.

Ha! yes Cari the skin would be tempting. I will blog about the lady I met today. Then we'll discuss.

and Sarah, I LOVED the orange cast. I am trying to think of a way to dye this one or paint it.

You could always hot glue some more pom poms on it. :)
