It is about time, some good news

Posted by Tammie on 11/05/01 at 17:30 (064176)

Today when I woke I was very pleased to see that alot of the swelling in my foot was gone,it was like a normal foot! Now I am not saying that it had no pain but the majority was not there!!!!!The first cortisone shot that I have ever had that might have actually done something good for my foot!!!! I had it fri and the Dr. told me by mon it should feel a bit better and oh my was he on the tract man!!!! I was glowing I am sure.

I had to work today, I was careful to wear my orthodic in the air boot thing and it felt nice not to toe walk and tho the day was long it was better then I had thought it would go! I see some swelling tonight and attacked it with the ice and pray that tomorrow I will wake with the ame happiness as I did today. Oh yes did I say that the sleep last night equaled more then 3 hrs? It did, I just wanted to share my good fortune today as It was a great day for me!

I have to wonder if a special surprise call from a friend or maybe a couple surprise notes of encouragement had anything to do with this happy moment, but what ever it was I am truly thankful and extreamly upbeat with hope AGAIN! Hope all of my friends here had as good of a day I did because boy does it make a difference, it has been 6 mnths since the first surgery and about 9 weeks from the second surgery still hope YES!!!!Hugs to all of u and hope the sun comes out for u to!

U know the just in case kinda thing, The swelling amazingly, after a full 9 hr work day,stayed to a minimum. I am so happy No the word is not all better no the feet are not totaly better as they tell me this but there is a change that is certain!Am I setting my self up for a disaster of let down, maybe but right now I dont care I will enjoy the moment! The SLEEP oh my I am forgetting what it is like to sleep more then a couple of hours. I better watch it or i might like sleeping to much heheheh!

I feel totaly renewed and refreshed , and entergetic I cant wait as today I will try to do some house things I had been shoving away as I just hurt to bad. I feel like a entergetic whirlwind. I will try to control some of it as I would like to maintain this happiness! Who would think one injection could work this magic? I had had several others thru allof this foot stuff none of them did anything, I wonder why this one did? And I am wondering if this can be forever? I must sound giddy as I write this as I certainly feel it. I keep staring at my much more normal looking foot it is even looking more pretty and not so ugly.

I just want to share so much as those who are in the darkness I had felt I want u to see that please never give up hope even a few days of happiness are worth the effort, at least I hope so! Since for months I have been whining with nothing good it is time I am able to give something positive back. I just hope this is not a dream and I wake up from a jolt, lol a bit of humor there (jolt).Well off I go now as I feel wonderful and I am going to enjoy thease moments,and attack some neglected chores. Hugs to all of u and I pray that each of you finds this joy even if it is for a moment when reading this,as tomorrow it may be u writing us with hope! Thank u friends from my heart thank u so much for helping me thru all of thease tough moments!

Great news Tammy. I don't think it was the cortisone. Nope, it was the prayers! Keep them coming friends.

A warm Hug to u to!!!!!!!!!!! I will accept all prayers naturally and for the cortisone? Well if it is that I dont really like them but if it works I will take as many as needed!Tomorrow is a work day for me , I have noticed today a bit more discomfort in foot,I am hoping it is the risidual effects of yesterdays work day, and not long lasting.After tomorrow i have 2 days off to recoup before my 2 in a row weekend! This will be the great test.Hugs to u and thanks!
