Wheelchair-1 Lesia-0

Kayla handed me the keyboard (good thing it's wireless.) I just wanted to let you know that my "good" foot was injured doing water aerobics. I torn or pulled some ligaments, after trying to stop a bad Charlie Horse in the arch of my foot. That one is slowly getting better.

But then I had a bad accident with my electric (very powerful)wheelchair and my "bad" foot. Here's the ugly story, the best way I know how to explain it:

I was trying to open a bathroom door at a store. I had my leg at an angle as to not to hit my "bad" foot. Going in, I smashed my "bad" foot leg between the outside of the wheel of the chair and the door jam. And in the process of trying to maneuver my chair, away from the jam, I run over my "bad" foot. It was turned inward and twisted upward, as I was running over it. Now that took some major talent! Needless to say I hurt it's pretty bad. I SCREAMED very loud and swore like a sailor! The employees of the store were speechless. Good thing Kayla was there to comfort me and wipe away the tears. She thought I broke it by the way the foot looked after I got free from the door. But I knew it wasn't broke just hurt badly.

If you didn't know I have Tarsal Tunnel on my "bad" foot. I have surgery scheduled for Oct 4th, unless my "good" foot can't handle all my weight. If not I will be canceling the surgery (no weight baring on it after makes it hard with a bad "good" foot.)

I was nervous enough not being able to have weight on my "bad" foot after surgery for 3 weeks, but NOW with an injured "good" foot; I am way stressed. The timing stinks!

So now you know... ARE YOU SO CONFUSED???
