Day #5

     I am slowly being driven mad by the fact I can not drive. I can't walk very far yet so the houses in my neighborhood are kind of getting boring to look at-ok the mailbox at the end of the driveway. My foot is slowly feeling better and I am not in much pain when I just sit. But my bum is tired of sitting. The pain I had before surgery is all gone. That is a very good thing.
      So why is not driving just making me crazy? When I do drive -to school, to get groceries and to all the after school activities - I complain I am in my car all day. And all I want to do is be home. Maybe it's not necessarily the lack of freedom to drive -but just the lack of freedom to do whatever I want to do. Whatever a healthy body can do. I will never take my health for granted again. This is a silly little surgery in comparison to most. My being inconvenienced for a short period of time is really nothing. I am thankful that it is nothing serious. 
     But I can't wait to go to the doctor tomorrow. And don't tell him I drove there by myself. He better give  me the  real ok to drive.


  1. Hello - you've changed your profile pic - how nice to 'see' you :)

    I hope your foot is heals well and thoroughly, and that the doc does give you the ok to drive!

  2. Glad to hear you are getting better! I just got done dyeing some fabric this AM, have to get ready for the workshop.
