find a way

Day by day my foot is getting better and healing. I am now able to hobble around without crutches and without much pain. I am still trying to be a model patient though and not overdo things. I am excited to report I have found a good setup in my exercise room. Note the cool […]

nancy foot surgery

Well, so far so good with the foot surgery. I was pretty uncomfortable over the weekend, but the pain pills made me so sleepy that it is all a blur. I actually didn’t find it all that hard to sit still. Today I awoke and had no pain, yay! I am able to move around […]
