“If you believe in a God who controls the big things, you have to believe in a God who controls the little things.”
Welcome back, friends! Last week here at Single Yet Engaged, I started telling you all about my ankle saga, and today I will catch up to where I find myself in the recovery process today! If you missed it, you can read it here.
Now on to part two…
I had to be at St Vincent’s around 10 AM. They took me right on back and got me all prepped for surgery. Dr. Waldrop came in and said “you ready to do this?!” And of course I replied “yes!!” His next words would be my theme for the next 8-12 weeks…
“No weight! no weight! no weight!
Elevate! elevate! elevate!”
There would be a time of no weight bearing for 8-12 weeks so that the bones could fuse properly, so his little phrase stuck in my head. The surgery went well and the next thing I knew, I was in the car on my way to Georgia where I would spend the next few weeks.
I was sent home with crutches and a handy-dandy knee scooter to ride around everywhere! I only had a few wrecks and hit every wall in the house at least once with it…but that’s it. No big deal, right?
Snickers even liked the scooter!
