Today I check in for surgery at 11:30 am. I have a mixture of feelings as relief and fear! But I got to do this to get better. Wish me luck folks will post maybe later the outcome.

    You can do this! The road is long, but each day is better than the last and you’re taking the first big step toward a full recovery!

    Yeah, you did it!

    It’s all recovery from here, keep your spirits up.  There is a thing called broken leg depression, do something nice for yourself every day, cry if you need to, then maybe journal.  I wrote some of the silliest things a week or two after my surgery. Ppl wanted to know how I broke both my ankles, so I started making up elaborate stories.  Amuse yourself, I watched vintage tv, MASH, Brady Bunch.....it was comforting.  Chocolate pudding, flowers, clean sheets, a car ride, theses were my daily treats.  Take care of yourself!!!!!!

    Congratulations! The first part is done. I should be having mine the end of the month, I’m chicken!! My friend went in 3 weeks ago for back surgery and ended up with a blood clot in boathouse lungs. She just came home this afternoon. It scared me because I had a Thalamus stroke with a bunion surgery 7 1/2 yrs ago. Strokes and blood clots my two fears. I am suppose to have my left ankle fused. I hope you heal swiftly 🙏sent your way. Please keep is posted. God Bless you. Pray for my fear to subside, everyone. 😘
