Usually my first step in the morning causes excruciating pain as the bones adjust to being moved, but this morning I had a pleasant surprise that my first steps did not cause this pain. It has stayed this way all morning and I only have had an occasional ache or a burning pain in the top of my foot. This, unfortunately, was the cause of me deciding to have this surgery to begin with. Hopefully, this is only a mending process and not a foreshadowing of things to come.
I took advantage of the brilliant sunshine and sat outside on my patio for several hours reading a book, watching my dogs play and just relaxing in the sunshine.
