This Friday, I reflect on my gratitude for continual feeling of my feet. It’s been 4 months since my surgery. They aren’t 100% yet, but they are a ton better.
A few advancements that I am particularly grateful for:
–I have few limitations. I haven’t attempted hiking yet, but I am fine in walking around town and have been okay in our recent travels. It’s nice not to have to plan the whole day around the length of time I can walk or do errands.
–I have graduated into sandals for walking short distances. This is a big deal. For the exception of the month I was in my special orthotic shoes, I have been wearing the same black tennis shoes for 3 months solid. Let’s just say its a welcome change to have new options.
–I got a pedicure. It was done by the podologue*, who I have been going to since the surgery to help with side effects, etc. of the procedure. This last time she asked if I wanted her to add color and I gladly accepted. Not that I get pedicures anymore (they are about 100 CHF in Geneva) but it’s been over 6 months since they’ve been painted even at home.
Bon weekend, everyone!
*Yes, this is the same lady who I tried to go to for foot surgery and she said, “I can only cut your toenails”. I am not sure if she recognizes me from that instance. I still haven’t confessed that I was the one who tried to get her to operate on me.
