New boot!


Yeah that's right, just one boot! I'm really going to be stylin' for the rest of the summer in my new boot. I think it weighs about 20 lbs. Argggg..... Tomorrow is the day for my surgery. I'm having a bunion and a hammer toe fixed. I also have a terrible neuroma in that foot, a bunion on the pinky toe, and misaligned bones that are protruding on the outside of my foot. He thinks that I have torn tendons where those protruding bones meet. Whatever, it hurts!!! He is only willing to do the bunion and hammer toe at one time, though. He thinks that will alleviate some of the other issues. I will probably have to go back to have the neuroma taken out later.
My computer and sewing rooms are in my basement so I don't know when I'll get to sew or blog. I'm sure it will be a few days, though. I don't know how easy the stairs will be to maneuver.
An up-date on my little great niece who I told you about in my last post. She is okay, but they did find a hairline fracture in her hip. It didn't show up at first, but when she wouldn't or couldn't stand and walk they took her back and found this. Poor little one!

Hope your surgery goes well, and sorry to hear about your niece. I've had bunionectomy my both of my feet. I'm so glad I did because I was in a lot of pain. I no longer have pain in my feet.

Hey Julia. I will pray that you will be up and about in no time. I am sure that the surgery will go perfectly and hope that you will take great care of yourself.
Checked out your other posts and you have a wonderful family! This time-out from doing other things will probably give you more time with them....
