I'm glad I still have some new things in my file to share with you as I haven't really been able to be upstairs enough to create since the accident. It's another two weeks before I can even start to put weight on my foot ( with the boot on). ugh Nothing is happening fast enough for me at this point. It's been over 7 weeks now ... and it feels like it's been every bit of that if not more. I ( strongly dislike) not being able to do what I want, when I want. lol I AM my fathers Daughter. lol
This is a card made using another one of Tammy Tutterows beautiful stamps.
I LOVE that these stamps are so easy to color!
I'm a member of an online group for people with foot and ankle injuries, and I have to tell you... its been a great source of info and support. Of course each person and their injuries and circumstances are different but it still really helps give you an idea of what to expect.
I quickly saw that I wasn't the only one having a hard time being patient with this healing process. I don't like feeling like a negative Nelly but some days are just frustrating.
One of the ladies said "I try to look at it as a sort of vacation". Now I love optimism and I think that trying to find the good in things is always best...... but lol There is nothing about this experience that I could make feel like a vacation. hahaha ( I'm thinking she has some really great pain meds) lol
So focusing on the positive.... I am going to share the best time I've had in quite a while. My sis and brother in law came Saturday night and brought dinner with them. Keith did all the grilling and Jan had made all the food. It was amazing!
It was so nice, we sat outside to eat. I felt like I was part of the living world! Such a good time. I can never thank them enough for all they have done for us since the accident. They are just amazing people.
Check out that yummy food!
Here is my other constant company. They can be real bed hogs.
I'm so glad we have this main floor guest bedroom, because it's been a life saver. It is actually the master bedroom and bath, but with Dans odd work hours we have always had our bedroom upstairs away from any noise.
We used this bedroom for mom when mom stayed here, and I was so thankful for it then. Dan put a tv in here also, so that helps pass the time. I'm getting around better now so I had be in the living room, kitchen ect, but getting upstairs to the bed every night would be impossible.
I had my first therapy session tomorrow afternoon. I'm excited to start. It's just one more step ( no pun indented ) to things getting back to normal.
I'm hoping you are all having a great Summer! Thanks for stopping by!
