Winter has seemed long and cold and gone slow, now the accident seems to be going that way too. My foot swells up rather fast, I am still spending most of my time in or on my bed with my foot up.
I know this is just something I have to get through, cannot force my foot to heal faster, I can't change time and avoid the accident..and I have plenty of reasons to count my blessings and realize how fortunate I really am.
I have good doctors taking care of me and my damaged foot. My loan officer insisted on disability insurance for my mortgage and loans at First National so those payments are being made for me, and the driver at fault had good insurance..which has taken responsibility for this accident.
I have Mike Ferrin back in my life--after over 33 years...the first time he asked me to marry him, I was 20 and told him that his mom wouldn't like it..I thought he would someday regret it and I couldn't take a chance on him some day walking out or asking me to leave..I didn't think I was good enough..
Now, we've set a wedding date--hopefully I will be back at work and that I can get the time off...and this summer he will be moving here, my husband, and the man who makes my life far more complete than I ever thought it could be..
I will get through the long and tough days ahead, I know my foot is making progress, that in time I will be back walking and working and out in my garden.
Tonight I would like a long hot bath with a foolish book and M&M's..can't take the bath with this foot in fiberglass cast, no M&M's and the foolish books just bore me to tears lately..I am being discontent with my current sitation..and know it could be far worse...
