She's Baaack

Last night, I was released from the hospital. 
I had surgery on my foot Friday morning. I must say, I am a bit taken back. Okay, A LOT taken back. I didn't anticipate for the pain to be this real, and unbearable. We cannot find a medication to control the pain, or even to take the edge off. 
I cannot sleep. and I cannot move by myself. 
I need help doing literally everything, from getting out of bed, getting dressed, going to the bathroom, etc. I don't like feeling so helpless. I can't put any weight on my foot for 8 to 12 weeks.

From what I understand, I had 3 bones in my foot cut, 2 bones shaved down, bone's put in, 2 tendons, including my Achilles, were cut and stretched. I had screws put in, my heel re-adjusted, and a part of my foot fused.

Whew. Bare with me as I may be slow posting new pages on my blog.
To make matter's better, I am moving July 31.
So BARE with me, I haven't forgotten about you!

I'm so sorry for the pain you're going through! I hope you can enlist some friends and family to help with the move! Not that it's the same but I moved while in the third trimester of pregnancy and that's the only way I made it through.
