Day 2 Post Surgery Update:

I can’t thank you all enough for the kind words, thoughts and encouragement! They have lifted my spirits and helps keep me focused on what’s to be rather than what could have been! I can tell you already that Day 2 is a better day than Day 1! My pain is getting better. I’m down to taking only 1 pain med every 4 hours instead of 2! I’ve been told during these first 1-2 weeks it’s important to keep my foot elevated above my heart as much as possible. So, that means a lot of laying down which I’m just not used to. The adjustable tempurpedic bed we have makes it a bit easier though! 🙂 Friends and family have been treating us really well with all kinds of meals and offers to help….so THANK YOU!!! Troy has been super helpful bringing me coffee and breakfast in bed, working double duty at our businesses, bringing me things from work that I can do from home, running to the store, picking up kids, doing laundry, etc. THANK YOU honey, I couldn’t do this alone!!!

I have heard from numerous people that have gone through this as well, and have been so open to share with me their experiences! I tell you it’s a good thing I CrossFit because it certainly makes the routine mundane things that we take for granted, such as trying to bathe, getting dressed, or even getting around the house, much easier when you’re in great shape. I have no problem balancing on one leg, hopping around on one leg, or doing weighted pistols on one leg….all of which I can thank to my training in CrossFit. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I’m confident and willing to do the work! I will continue to keep my focus on what I can do and not what I can’t do! Thank you for your prayers and support!
