The incisions on my foot are mostly healed but my foot is still really sore. the ball of my foot is swollen up and I still can't put any pressure on it. The toe is still swolen up and stiff. I have some movement in it but its not flexable at all. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday and am sure he'll let me take the boot off. 

Since the incision is healed I decided I could at least go to the gym and ride the stationary bike and lift some weights. Wetn 5 miles and did some upper body weights. I will be sore tomorrow.

Here's the latest picture:

Gym work again. 5 Miles on the bike and some weights....man I'm sore from Monday! :-(

Going to the doctor today and will probably get the boot off. That will be good but I'm far from able to run. The toe and foot are still pretty swolen up.

...But I am moving.... :-)

2 miles on the elliptical (I'm counting it as running miles). I have to put my weight on my heel but it seems to work pretty well. My HR was as if I were into a marathon 15 miles.

Then some weight lifting...

It's going to be a rough come back.

Don't get too excited...they're just elliptical miles! It will be a while longer before I can start running, Doc says no running for another 3 weeks and then we'll see. I still can't put any pressure on the center of my foot. ...BUT I AM MOVING!!!

Don't know what I did yesterday but my foot was really sore today. I went ahead to the gym for the elliptical as planned and went 5 miles as the elliptical doesn't really hurt the foot much. Hope it feels better tomorrow. It's good to be back moving and blogging.

I kept thinking ... maybe I'm just a wuss, then I realized that when I put my foot on the ground my toes on my right foot still don't touch the ground like my left foot. There's still a lot of swelling in the ball of my foot and it's sore!

Elliptical miles..

It has been a rough few days.... 

Callie and Matt's wedding went off without a hitch (well actually the did get hitched)! The rain held off all afternoon and evening...it was great!

Sunday morning was a little scary with threats of the new inlaws (in a rental house) possibly flooding and not being able to get in touch with them to warn them. Some other dear/close friends home flooded up 7' in their single story house with them barly excaping into the attic.

We spent the last two days trying to salvage some of their stuff and gutting all the sheetrock and insulation out of their house.

We know several other families whos homes flooded but thankfully no one was lost. Many of these houses were not anywhere near the river or even the 500 year flood plain.

Rough time in San Marcos area right now!

Pray!
