This week I went outside three times and two of those times I was by myself. I know it sounds silly but it’s a big deal for me. 315 more words

Life Happened - Oli is Six

You would be forgiven for thinking that the Life Happened updates have been a little bit boring recently and you’d be right because I can’t walk much, don’t leave the house and don’t do much at all.. 213 more words

Foot Update

It’s been three and a half weeks since the osteotomy and two weeks since I had the stitches out and it’s looking much better

The scar isn’t looking nearly as fearsome and, provided I’m wearing the boot, I’m more mobile and am able to get about a bit more, but I can’t really do a lot of standing, more than 30 minutes and the foot is swollen and purple and I have to put it up but on Monday Kathy and Daisy came to visit and I sat at the kitchen table with my foot down and it didn’t hurt. 269 more words

Life Happened - A short walk

Week three of osteotomy recovery and I’m a bit more on my feet but still in the boot. I went for two walks outside on Wednesday and Sunday and I’m on my feet enough to do things like cook and wash up and put stuff away. 552 more words

Life Happened - Stitches and sofa time.

It’s fair to say that I’ve been completely out of the loop this week, I haven’t heard Adele’s new song, didn’t see the John Lewis Christmas advert and I wasn’t wearing a poppy. 260 more words

Recovering from surgery...

It’s been 5 days since the¬†osteotomy, honestly, I’m surprised by how easy and how difficult it’s been.

First up pain. It is painful, someone cut open my foot, shaved off some bone and moved my toe to a new position. 605 more words
