Things aren't great with my foot. But they're better.
That big toe that I could always pop turned out to be an issue. It was fun to freak my mom out all those years...
A month since my injury, my foot doesn't always throb when it's elevated. Those shooting pains only wake up after I walk on it. Every morning doesn't find me in pain.
I know it needs more rest, and I'll work with a podiatrist to get some good orthotics to relieve pressure from the specific area. Friday's MRI says that I have "dancer's toe", and not "the end of the world". I can work with this. That wonky toe pulls on tendons that run through my arch, under my heel, and make my Achilles and ankle sore. It seems to be a common thing.
Funny, cuz I only dance in the kitchen when I'm cooking.
I'm NOT a graceful swimmer!! For all my splashing and floundering in the lanes, I'm enjoying this journey too.
Never give up.
