Light at the end…

…of the tunnel!  I see it!  I really see it!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally got my cast off.  I thought it had been longer since I broke my ankle, but we added it up and it has only been 5 1/2 weeks.  I guess when you are laid up, it just seems like foreverrrrrrrrr!

So here’s the deal pickle!  My orthopedic (named Dr. Hacker)  I know funny huh?, said that I should be walking WITHOUT the crutches in about 2 1/2 more weeks.  I’m super excited!  Actually just having the cast off is awesome!  My leg can breathe!  Now I’ll be starting physical therapy on Monday to get some flexibility in this leg.  Dr. Hacker said I could hang around the house without my walking boot but if  I go anywhere or run around the house, I need to have it on.  But I noticed the more I hang around with it off, the more I work the foot for some mobility.

Many lessons learned…

Ok, how many times do you think you have someone figured out and then they say or do something or NOT do something and you realize that maybe you don’t know that person as well as you thought?  I don’t get it and maybe, just maybe that’s not how it’s suppose to be.  But I’m the kind of person that what you see, is what you get!  I don’t try to be someone I’m not.  With me, you pretty much KNOW who I am.   If I’m your friend, I’m a good friend.  I’m loyal and always there for you!  But when someone I feel acts out of character, I just don’t know how to respond to it.

I can’t tell you just how many things God is showing me during this time of being laid up. This is just one of them.  It’s amazing what He’s teaching me.  God’s been dealing with me on all levels of my spiritual walk.  There’s not a whole lot you can do while you have your foot up in the air, so it’s been very humbling to say the least.  I’ve even realized just who really are my friends and those that I THOUGHT were my friends who really aren’t after all.

I’m learning my strengths and weaknesses!  This is not easy!  Yes, keep showing me Lord my strengths, but please don’t show me my vulnerabilities and weaknesses!  😛  Continue reading ‘Many lessons learned…’

Old Navy…

I just love this new commercial by Old Navy.  I am cracking up at the manicans! N-Joy


I’m doing well with my cast.  Tomorrow morning I have an appt. with the electro-physiologist to see if they will do surgery on my heart again.  I’m really hoping this doctor will take the agressive move and try.  I’ll let you know how it goes.

Rich went to get his search dog this week and the entire family is really excited.  I hope to have some pictures to share soon.  Oh wait…I forgot,  some of you asked about all of the hardware in my ankle.  Well, here’s a picture I took from my cell phone in the dr.’s office.


Yes, these are both of my left foot!  *GRIN* peacedude

Have a great MONDAY everyone!

Until later….
