I am delighted to announce that I have graduated from shoebootie. I still have one more x-ray to come and I'm still using an elastic type tape -- a miracle product that replaces the old ace bandage -- and regularly icing my foot, but I am officially in two sneakers and I am loving it. I am scheduled to get my new orthotics in two weeks and I'm really looking forward to wearing shoes, real shoes and not sneakers.
I do have a round of rehab to look forward to, but it's probably my sixth or seventh go at physical therapy and I am actually looking forward to it. I know it will be much easier to walk when I am finished and my back will feel better, too. I will also then be able to return to my exercise classes and in one part of my life all will truly be right with the world. I know there will still be a few aches and pains, but not this set of aches and pains, and I feel very fortunate for that.
Please stop by tomorrow for one of my favorite parts of the week, Random 5 Friday. It won't be quite as random as usual -- the date of November 22, 1963 has been on my mind -- but it's just about my favorite post each week.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Sweet dreams and take good care of yourself.
