:( & :)

There has been so much going on with my foot. But to make a long story short I have to do another 2 weeks of no weight baring. The stitches are out, the incision looks good. The bruising is ugly but will fade.

I can now shower which I did and loved it. They said I could put a little weight on it yesterday and when I did a huge electrical shock went up my leg. So I call the doctor to find out if that was normal or my MS acting up?

Dr just called and said the electrical shock is coming from the nerve. And that means IT IS NOT HEALED ENOUGH YET. So no weight baring for 2 more weeks.

Patience is not my strong point. But I will do as I am told:)

On a more happier note I stepped oh so very lightly on the scales this morning and I am down 3 pounds since Oct. 1st. So even with all the meals being brought in my home I still ate wisely enough to loss. 4 more and I am done. Maybe by Christmas.

What an exciting year this has been. Thanks for holding on tight with me on my wild and crazy journey. smile.

  7. How are you doing that with no exercise? You have amazing determination!

    Sorry to hear about the electric shock sensation. Makes me shiver to think about it. Do what the Doc says, no weight-bearing. By the time you're healed, you'll be so light, no problem.

    SMILE!

  12. There are all kinds of things you can do for exercise without putting weight on your foot. There's 1001 different kinds of crunches you can do, leg lifts, butt lifts. You can do triceps dips off a chair, all kinds of arm-weights activities, shoulder presses, etc.

    Heal up fast, and feel better soon! Congrats on washing the foot. That must have felt terrific!

    And thank you for always posting such nice comments on my blog. I appreciate your support so very much!!! HUGS!!!
