Another surgery...

Life kept me from updating for another year, but now I'm waiting to have surgery and thought it might be a nice opportunity to revive Curly Bones. I've been struggling with pain and discomfort in my right ankle for several years now and I finally found a surgeon willing to help. In August I will be having a "Hindfoot Triple Arthrodesis" that will help align my right leg with my foot, fuse multiple joints and if all goes well, keep me pain free! Anxiety has kicked in, but I know it needs to be done. I'm hoping to spend this Summer running around with my kids and having as much fun as possible because recovery is a minimum 6-8 weeks non-weight bearing and life will quickly come to a standstill. We plan on renting a recliner that I can sleep in, have several pieces of medical equipment from previous surgeries and I'll have plenty of entertainment from books to revisiting old TV shows. I even bought a loom in the hopes that I'll enjoy learning how to loom knit. I loved posting about our experience with IVF and had some great responses from other families who struggled with fertility, now maybe I can be a bit of a support for others going through tough times with autoimmune. I'll do my best to update about my experience as much as possible and hopefully it'll be therapeutic along the way.
