Flash Forward Friday
So I am pretty excited about what happened at Physical Therapy yesterday, I put weight on my ankle! Yes! I am truly making progress and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It seems like this healing process is taking forever. I have been thinking about it and I think part of the reason that it feels like it’s taking so long is simply that we live in such a “now” society that I want healing to happen instantly. However, the Father, in His infinite wisdom, made the body perfectly and I need to respect that and the healing process. It’s funny that I can be so patient when I’m making bread from scratch or when I’m baking or cooking something. I enjoy the process, so maybe that’s why I can be patient when it comes to that sort of thing.
The thing that I have noticed though, especially in the last couple of days is that my calf and ankle are swelling. I have been trying not to take the pain meds simply because I feel like I’ve been pretty much taking them since the end of August. Yes, I know that is bad for me to take it for so long. I had a reaction to 2 different medications in less than a month. That’s pretty scary for me. I will say that I have been reading more since I have been down. I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy it. Happy Friday!
