Three Months ago today....
I had my first foot surgery. I actually wore tights yesterday to church. My foot feels a lot better and it looks a lot better than it has. It mostly doesnt hurt. I bought some new dress shoes about a month ago because the toe box of my left foeet is now wider, and my right foot will be like that in a few months (after my next surgery for the other foot)

That's wonderful! I am so glad things are going well. It must have felt good to buy some nice shoes knowing you'll be able to wear them soon! Here's to continued recovery and success with your next surgery!

It has now been a little over four months since my surgery
this is a picture of how my foot looks now (as compared to the other foot; which will hopefully be operated on in July) Warning: slightly graphic image below
you have been warned

They are straightening your big toe? Amazing what they can do today isn't it. I'm glad things are going so well for you and it must be a big relief.

Oh your foot looks great and that the surgery went well. Good luck on the second one. Won't it be nice to wear nice shoes again.
