What a day! I might have forgotten my pirate costume in the rush to get out the door but I had an awesome day anyway 😁
.
My initial prosthetic (which is only to make sure size and shape are correct) weighed a tonne when it first went on, but by the end of the day it was comfortable.

Those first steps made me feel like a baby deer 🦌 can't wait to go back tomorrow πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ

3 weeks ago today I took the biggest health step of my life, now I'm ok but I'm not all right πŸ˜‰ (don't worry, there are puns afoot) cue the life story:
I was born with a severely clubbed foot which led to multiple surgeries and a fabulous friendship with anaesthesia. At the age of 17 I inquired about an amputation and was told "we don't amputate health tissue". I was then referred off to a new surgeon in Dublin.
This surgeon gave me a surgical option of an Illizarov frame. This was 4kg of metal scaffolding (lovingly named Norbert) attached through the bones of my foot and leg that I lugged around for 9 months, while mm by mm adjusting the angle of my foot.
When Norbert was finally taken off I was left with a foot thats function closely resembled that of a brick. I ended up giving up sports. Most nights I went to bed with an ankle so swollen my calf looked like it just turned into a foot. It was nothing but pain and suffering for 6 years. Pushing through the pain and immobility to try to keep as active as possible (I'll admit that the 20km hike through Mount Doom was not wise). When I finally got back to the surgeon I was asking for anything that would give me as much functionality as possible. I leave her clinic with 4 options and the contact details of 3 surgeons who can give second opinions. My options where:
Do nothing
Fuse the joints
Go back in the frame
Amputate

When I told the surgeons what I was originally told about amputation I got "This is not healthy tissue. You cannot function with it and the joints are arthritic." So with that in mind I gladly went forward with the amputation.
While seeing a psychologist is not required for amputation, I went to get as mentally prepared as possible. I spent several months doing mental exercises where I imagined myself without the foot, as well as other exercises. I firmly believe that by being as psychologically prepared for the surgery as I was is what helped me end up with minimum phantom limb pain. I am ready and rearing to take on the world now

So turns out that Magic: The Gathering cards can't be washed...who knew? #mistakesweremade #checkyourpockets #mtg #magicthegathering #magic #cardgame #wizardsofthecoast #whoops

Our little Cabbages went to get spayed today. I brought home a burrito that's stoned out of her trolley!
Now that she's started to wake up she is not happy about the cone of shame. There has been some adorable sulking, and scooting around in circles trying to lick herself...to no avail.

Taking productivity to an 8 today with some homemade white chicken chilli and a baby blanket #knitting #knittersofinstagram #homemade #domesticgoddess #chilli #babyblanket #handmade #handmadewithlove #pompom #bubble

First weekend with our new pup. She's had an abundance of cuddles and love ❀️ she's so chill, she doesn't want to get off the couch for anything (which suits me fine)

We've been really lucky with her. She's had no problem eating and drinking, going to the bathroom outside, and she was quiet as a mouse in her crate last night.
