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!).

Peanut is enjoying some fresh parsley from my co-workers garden. These were taken not too long before she passed away.

Monday was my 2 week post-op check up with the surgeon. I had my half cast and stitches removed. Now I have a tensor bandage and an air cast. The air cast is mostly just for protection, I don't have it inflated. Some days are better than others for pain. Monday was bad as I went to work after my appointment and by the end of the day it was aching. Mostly because the stitches were removed and the foot manipulated a little. So far the rest of the week hasn't been too bad, although it is usually aching a little by the end of the day. I may be overdoing it a little but I really hate the crutches. I'm hoping to post a picture soon, but right now it looks much worse than it actually is. There is still a line of marker or something where the incision is making it look much larger and more ragged than it actually is. The incision itself is about 2 inches long and 1-2mm wide. There are stitch marks on either side. I am counting down the days until my 6 week post-op appointment where I will get x-rays and hopefully be able to walk out instead of hobble!

Sorry for the delay in posting, between being busy and losing 2 bunnies I just haven't felt up to it. But since I have to take it easy for awhile I thought I'd get back into it.
So, I won't be running for awhile! Over the last year or so a small lump on my left foot beside my little toe (bunionette) has started to bother me. It was getting more and more annoying so I decided to book the surgery. I had the same surgery on my right foot 12 years ago and it went really well. This is a picture of my foot about a week after surgery. I had the surgery on the 3rd of April. The dressing is a half cast on the left side of my foot to protect the surgery site.
I've decided to make some regular segments on this blog. Bunny Sunday or "Bunday" will be bunny pictures and Tuna Tuesday for cat pictures! They will be my own usually but I will also share adoptables from Rabbit Rescue and the Alliston and District Humane Society.
Thanks for reading!
