It's the last day of January today. Or, for my loyal readers in New Zealand a/k/a family members, the first day in February. Even though it's just another day on the calendar, I like the idea that tomorrow my surgery will be something that happened last month. I need every milestone along the road right … Continue reading Day 15: End of a Month
The headline from today's follow up is that everything is healing really well but I'm in a (new and more fancy) cast for another week. I'm a little disappointed that I can't swim this week (or wash or shave my lower right leg) but I'm happy to know everything is on track. My original cast … Continue reading Follow Up Appointment

(And also made me a little sad … Continue reading Day 9: Getting Out Some More

As best I can tell, my heel is healing pretty well but I really won't know how the incision looks until my appointment … Continue reading It’s Been a Week!
I dreamed about running last night. I had just recovered from my surgery but was already trying to join a new track group. I was trying to park as close as possible so as not to tax my capacity to run by walking too far to get there. Then I discovered I had forgotten my … Continue reading Day 7: Running Dreams
