Wanted to share that I graduated from the boot and my surgeon has finally approved physical therapy on my foot. It took almost 10 weeks to get here! Walking is painful but improves with each step. I’ll tell you what’s really painful is a physical therapist manually/electronically breaking up scar tissue from surgery…yowza. The good news is that I’m no stranger to foot pain after many years in pointe shoes. It’s just a new kind of pain now. I’m far from being able to dance or ride, but that’s okay because while waiting on my foot, I started physical therapy on an old hamstring injury from ballet. It’s been challenging and rewarding. I LOVE my physical therapist! He’s knowledgeable, athletic, and a beast of a sports trainer. He’s got me doing core and Pilates exercises to strengthen in a whole new way.
My goal is to come back from this injury stronger and better than I was before. And I will. I’m a big believer in stating what you want to happen before it’s even a reality. Great things can happen with a good attitude. When working on a goal, never question yourself, no matter how long it takes you to get there. Simply move forward with confidence one step at a time. Sometimes you have to be creative in making progress. And I think that’s a good thing!
These days I’m appreciating the simple things like standing and walking so much more than I could ever imagine. And I thank God every day for the health of our family. Each day we have is such a gift.
Tis the season of thankfulness!
