It was the big unmasking today. For the first time in 2 weeks I left the house. It’s hard to describe the feeling – fresh air, sweet, on my skin. I stopped at the gate in front on my house and took several deep breaths. It was glorious.
I didn’t realize how worried I was about my wound. Would it be bloody? Was everything healing properly? Turns out it was! And, surprise! I can stand on it in just 2 more weeks! Wow.
But for tonight, I’m in a lot of pain. After removing my cast, I was fitted with a split that readjusts my foot to be more perpendicular. This is the most pain that I’ve had since the surgery, but I’m a big step closer to walking again.
