I will add a half hour a day until I'm pretty much out of the boot for the day and then I have to get to walking a mile without pain. When I can power walk a mile without pain then I can slowly start running. It will be about 2 more weeks.
Miraculously the plantar fasciitis pain is gone. When I step down after sitting or laying down for a while, no pain. That is amazing. I still have some numbness that I had before the procedure and a little pain on the outside of my foot. The pain on the outside of my foot was there before but I didn't pay much attention to it because everything else hurt so much. I'm going to adjust my SOLE inserts so that I have a little relief on that side. I do have a little aching after being on my feet all day in the SICU on concrete. I just have to elevate it and it goes away.
I'm going back to the podiatrist in 30 days. He is watching me carefully because it's a new procedure and he wants monitor any success or failure of it. I am also suppose to call him if I have any problems whatsoever.
Das Boot ala shoe cover
Resting on a chair in the ICU.
I haven't taken many pictures or have much going on in the last week. It's nice but boring. Lots of things going on and lots of working.
I have continued to eat very clean and tried a few new recipes that are delicious! Mostly Whole30 with a little Almond milk ice cream mixed in.
Work - I did get a job in another hospital in town working in their ICU. Only one day a week and maybe more. It will be guaranteed and I think it will help the stress of making sure I have enough money. I have been super lucky this week to put in almost 2 shifts in my favorite ICU with my friends.
Refinancing, paperwork, taxes, divorce....kids.
Karen Walker explains why I'm not too interested in delving into the details.
I really want to run! Guess I'll hobble on over to the gym again tomorrow and put some time in on the bike. Patience is a virtue, I should try it! I'm still reading Chi Running and working on a plan back to pounding the pavement. Next week I'm hoping to pick up some Pilates classes!
