Two Shoes

Sometimes it's the small things in life that make a difference. This morning I put on two shoes for the first time since March 21st! I know that my foot is way more interesting to me that it is to the rest of the world so I've been waiting for good news. This is good news.

I saw the doctor yesterday. The x-rays weren't quite as good as she'd hoped, but things are moving along. I have what is called a Jones Fracture. As it turns out, they can be kind of tricky and often take longer to heal than some other kinds of breaks because they are in a part of the foot that doesn't have a strong blood supply.

She wants me to wear my running shoes with some special insoles for two more weeks. Then we'll talk about running again, starting off very slowly. I wish running shoes were a tad more stylish. I guess I shouldn't complain, at least I'm out of the boot.

I broke my toe about a month ago and am itching to get out of this orthopedic shoe! The doctor says at least another week, then sneakers. Oh, how I'm dying to wear flip-flops! I can definitely relate to you and I, too, long for the day when I can go running again.
By the way--I love your yarn!

Congratulations on the 2 shoe thing! I have been there may times due to surgeries on my feet, I count 6 times right now! It feels so great to walk evenly again. Take care and let it finish healing before you go crazy!
