As you know, if you've been following my blog, I
had foot surgery about 11 weeks ago. Here are the
before and after photos. Boy, do I ever need a pedicure!!!
Even though, I still have quite a bit of swelling and can only wear my "lovely" tennis shoes, you can see the difference the surgery made. Actually, I do have a pair of brown Sketchers that I can wear for a little while.
I didn't realize until looking at these photos side by side how much that bunion did stick out there!! You can barely see my scars. That one on top of my foot is from where he fixed my second toe. It was pulling up and over, as you can see.
My niece is getting married in a few weeks and I was hoping to be able to wear a regular shoe by then, but I don't think so. I decided to buy dark brown long, flowing pants and not worry about my shoes. I'm going to wear the pants for the rehearsal and the wedding and just change the tops. I'll probably wear the Sketchers. The other alternative is to wear a decent shoe on my other foot and wear the smaller boot that I was wearing on this foot. That's what I did for one dressy event we went to lately. What do you think?
My niece will understand, and probably won't even notice what Aunt Julia wears. She'll have enough to think about without that.
I have a cute little skirt made for Riley and almost have a pair of pajama pants made for Little Man. I'll get photos of those posted soon. Then it's on to my friend's nieces outfits. I've put that off long enough, now.
My father in law is having surgery on both hands for carpal tunnel syndrome as I type this. My husband took him. He just had knee replacement a few months ago.
