Yesterday I had my 6 week appointment with my surgeon. I got some x-rays and they looked good. I'm allowed to walk normally, but no running for 6 more weeks. I have another appointment booked for about 6 weeks and he'll let me know then whether I can start running or not. My foot is still quite swollen and it gets pretty bad by the end of the day. I could hardly get my shoe on this morning and it was painful to wear before long. Hopefully this will get better soon. I'm going to take it easy this week and start exercising again next week. Going to focus on biking and swimming until I can run again.

This is Orchid! A sweet little foster I have for the Alliston and District Humane Society. Something at the shelter was bothering her tummy, but she is doing great here. She is still on a no veggie and no treat diet. I may try reintroducing very small amounts of veggies soon.

So it has been 25 days, I think it is healing up well. You can still see a bit of the marks from the surgery but I thought the pictures weren't too bad now, you can see the incision pretty clearly. I've had some pain this week, again I think I might just be spending too much time on my heel. I noticed a little more swelling than usual on Friday, in the third picture you can see my foot is swollen. I am taking it easy today and hoping the swelling will come down. I'm not sure if I just never noticed it before, but I so think it was a little worse yesterday which caused me to see it. I generally wear a tensor bandage around it during the day and I wonder if it was a little too tight on Friday. My ankle was quite swollen when I got home from work. I hope it isn't anything to be concerned about. Just two more weeks until I can start putting full weight on it (I hope!).
