Fell and broke my foot! And surgery next week!



Recommended Posts

OMG! So, my daughters are here on vacation and I set up a mini vacation for us to do things and have fun. This past Thursday evening we were in Austin, TX, and going to be on a Segway tour. We parked and walked 5 blocks to the meeting spot. About 100 feet from the spot, there was a dip in the sidewalk I didn't see and rolled my right ankle and landed my weight in my right foot. I felt it snap and just cried. I was so excited to go on the Segway tour, but instead I wound up at the hospital with a broken foot! I got a huge splint and now have to wait until Friday to see an orthopedic doctor. Monday I see my surgeon for preop and Wednesday I have my bypass!

I have the worst luck!

I'm very depressed and still in disbelief that this happened.

Sorry! I needed to vent!

I'm doing ok. I will find out at my next orthopedic appointment if I need surgery on my foot. I'm almost feeling back to normal 12 days post op. I have my surgery follow up later today and get my staples out. Yay!
Overall, I'm hanging in there and can't wait to be able to go on my walks again!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
