Looks like my leg could use a biscuit. 😉
Thank you to everyone who has been so encouraging in this fight with CRPS (RSD) to win my life back. I’ve been posting details and updates on my Facebook page when I have the energy for those who have been asking about the progress. ❤️ That, ladies and gentlemen, is a 9 inch calf. To put in in perspective my healthy ankle is only 8 inches and my knee is normal size. My thigh is 3 inches smaller than the other and the leg is inches shorter due to atrophy. I’m 5’7” and now weigh 106 lbs. That’s how much this disease has already stolen of my body. Oddly enough instead of crushing me this motivates me.
One day soon this will be my “before” photo. 😎
It means the world to have you here beside me on this journey. I got a second, more aggressive, spinal block yesterday, (I’ll update on Facebook when I know the outcome) and so far I’m still biting through leather belts from the pain. But I still have no regrets that I’m having to gonthrough this challenge. This has brought life changing lessons I’m learning and a gratefulness for the little things that I can’t wait to get back to... like being outside. I feel I can better understand and relate to others having been through this. God’s got a plan and I’ve got a healing... on His time... waiting for me. I don’t doubt that one bit.
Thanks for sticking with your girl. ❤️ Much love, Misty
