Talk about a pretty foot...

Since I haven't put an update out there for a while. Here it is. Love the scar with the holes from the stitches. Love the two little scars that look like the top of a draw string sac. Love the purple color it turns if I keep it down for any period of time. Love the great big boot that insurance didn't cover, so it cost us $130. Love the sausage toes I have every night when I go to bed and should be icing it. Love being asked by strangers what happened. Love riding in the super slow cart at Walmart/Costco/Target/Albertsons- that is when they have them available. Love the millions of snags on my sheets from the Velcro on my boot. Love wrapping my boot in an ace bandage so that I don't add to the millions of snags on my sheets. Love the challenge of cooking while balancing crutches, pans, food etc and hopping on one foot. Love the support my family has given me and the patience they have for the past 10 weeks and the patience they will have for the next 7 weeks. Love holding my girls on my lap while I am pushed around in a wheelchair. Over all, there are many true loves and many sarcastic loves. But, all in all, I am improving and hanging in there. Thank you for every one's support and prayers for our family.

Wow Amy, I can't believe how long it has been and how much longer you still have. Hang in there. You've almost inspired me to post a picture of my lovely feet!
