Phew. My right leg has finally jumped on the band wagon (hopefully for good) and decided that it’s time to fully heal. Swelling has gone down and the sore is finally healing over. Today marks two weeks post-op, which is kind of hard to believe. Aside from the occasional ache every now and then, the intense pain has stopped and I am ever so grateful. Hopefully by December 2, I will get the go ahead from the doc that the cast is no longer needed and I can get back to life. Yay! For right now, riding my bike is the best I can do with the cast on. It’s actually a heck of a lot easier than walking and obviously quicker. Needless to say I think my little legs are on the mend, for real this time 🙂

On an even happier note I have now raised over $1700.00 for the Paley foundation. The outreach from my friends and the Charleston community has been amazing. My favorite coffee shop here downtown made a very generous donation and I am without words to express my gratitude. Truly amazing. With 13 days left to raise money, I am confident that my goal of $2000.00 will be reached. Want to help? Go here and make a difference.
One thought on “On the Mend”
Wanted to send you a huge THANK YOU for opening up your life to all of us. My 3 yr olddaughter is a patient of Paley. She has pffd. This past Feb she had hip/knee surgery & she will be undergoing her 1st lengthing Sept of 2012. I am grateful for your honesty. I have not been able to pull myslf from your blog since finding it. Although it is heartbreaking to see the LONG journey my daughter has ahead of her it is reassuring to hear it has been worth it to you. I wish you nothing but the best and look forward to reading your book. We just started a blog for my daughter. All my best, Rachel http://haydengracesmith.blogspot.com/
