Bunionectomy 101

Day two post surgery and I doing great! The pain is manageable and whats better my hospital experience was wonderful. I told the doctors all about my dreams as I was coming out anesthesia and asked my anesthesiologist if I could hire him full time for when I can’t sleep at home. (Ben took a video of me which I will not be sharing with the class) While I was asleep I dreamed that my family was in the room with me making sure the doctors did their job correctly.

So after all my worrying my greatest fears were unfounded and nothing went wrong. My doctor put three screws into my bone and was able to move my toe over 6mm and you can already see the difference. Im sure  I will be going stir crazy after two weeks of laying in bed but i’m sure i can find someway to entertain myself. Ben has been by my side night and day making sure i’m not walking (which is big no no unless i have to go to the bathroom) and giving me all my meds. Aiden is doing his best not to jump on my foot and so far he’s done pretty good. I have felt very blessed these past two days and am thankful to have been covered in prayer during surgery. Now heres some pictures for a good laugh
