Tidbits

The thoughts that fill my head when I am asked how things are going:


...Somedays, my foot just aches.  It hurts to the touch, it aches when I walk, I feel a rainstorm coming.  But other days it feel like a cheerleader ready to jump up on my toes and throw arms and legs in the air.  So it brings us back to the same old question: is the bone healing and how much discomfort is too much?  After all, the greatest fear is that of the unknown....
