Default Hi SBD Chickies!

Wow, it's been too long!!! LOL, did anyone know I was gone???

It's Jenn! I am 4 weeks out from surgery now (I apparently tore my entire toe ligament, they lifted the joint in my toe so I no longer walk on it AND they had to cut 1mm of my bone so now my toe is shorter!), semi-mobile and ready to hop back on the beach. I've followed it about 75% of the way over the last month so there is no super hard reason to NOT come back! I can't exercise yet but that will come with time.

Life's been rough between the surgery and I was told this week that I am going to go from a full time employee at work to a contractor (meaning I lose $$$, benefits and go from 5 days a week to 3). I am devastated and there is a lot of politics surrounding it. However, I was told that if I can hang in there until Jan., I could come back full time. But I don't think I can afford that.

As you can see, I've got a lot going on but will be hopping back to SBD full time. I've got another week before I am off short term disability (or more, depending on my doctor's visit next Thursday) so you are stuck with me.

If you are into the gore of surgery, here is a link to my foot picture. I think it's a lot better incision wise, but it's so swollen and it hurts a lot of the time. If you are foot or gore phobic, don't click it!

Excited to be back with you all! Yay fall recipes!

Hey Jenn welcome back, yes you were missed. Thanks for the foot warning lol, but like a bad car accident I will take a peek lol. Glad you are healing and so sorry to hear about your job. Great job staying dedicated while you are recovering. Exercise may be easier once your foot is healed.

That's because I don't know Debbie! LOL

the original surgery was supposed to be for hammer toe (without the toe itself being bent) but he got in and told DW "no wonder she was in pain!" No clue how I did it. Just that I've been in pain since last NOVEMBER!
