Footloose And Not Fancy Free



"Pain is inevitable.  Suffering is optional".  ~M. Kathleen Casey

“I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”  ~Agatha Christie

I bet if you are looking at my pictures, you think I have Pink Eye!  But no,  instead I have blurry vision, a side effect from the nose cauterization.  And it is not getting any better, so I will be calling the doctor tomorrow. In other breaking holiday news; my foot was really hurt during P.T. and the E.R. wrapped it and gave me strong steroids. Fortunately it is not broken, but lots of swelling inside so I need to go to my other doctor to order an M.R.I., as it looks like something may be torn. And what did YOU do over the weekend?


“I’m not trying to get my way in the world’s way. I’m trying to get your way, your Word’s way. I’m staying on your trail; I’m putting one foot In front of the other. I’m not giving up.”
Psalm 17

I'm fairly certain that what you did for the holiday weekend is not on the "approved" list!! So sorry that you are going through these issues. Love your attitude, however.

Best,
Bonnie

I'm so sorry for all you are dealing with right now, Ginny. I'm praying for a swift recovery for you. Take care!

Ginny, sometimes putting one foot in front of the other is so hard. My toe problems on my "good" foot are minor compared to what you are experiencing. But it is painful enough to make walking an even greater challenge than before and enough to be an almost constant reminder that you are in need of all the prayers and good thoughts that friends and loved ones can send your way. Continuing in prayer.

Ginny,I will add my prayers for healing with those of others.

Ruth Kelly said...

Ouch. I have been there for at least problems with my knee where I was wrapped and on crutches. I pray that you may heal quickly with our Heavenly Father's help and good healthy food.

Are you saying that physical therapy hurt your foot bad enough to go to the ER?????? That is terrible. And blurry vision? You must be miserable. I am so sorry. Hugs and prayers. sandie

DawnTreader said...

Oh you poor thing. As for getting worse by physical therapy - I've been there... :( I can only hope and pray that you'll find better treatment and that your foot as well as your blurred vision will get better soon! ♥

Hi Ginny, You are in my prayers. Glad you still have a tremendous sense of humor. Hope you feel great sooner than later. Have a wonderful day tomorrow!

Oops Ginny, that's not such good news with your foot. Take care.

Greetings,

Sad you are having so many problems. Getting older is not for the faint of heart.

Bobbi and Gracie said...

Oh Ginny, No! I was going to say I hope you have some good books to read, but you can't even see, right? I will be praying!

LV said...

My word, what a terrible way to spend the holiday. Trust things are better soon. I think I could go without any of my senses, better than my eyes. I need a check up on them.

reana claire said...

Poor Ginny.. are you in pain again? Hope you are feeling better now.. when we reach a certain age, we ought to be careful.. and on the brighter side, we have Someone up there to look after us! Take Care and speedy recovery!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my gosh Ginny, what a horrible way to spend the weekend. And your foot got hurt during physical therapy? That is not at all funny.
Tell those doctors to get busy and made you better.
