Yesterday marked another milestone in the recovery process. Though it was a relatively small moment, it was a moment, and I am learning to cherish each step I take toward a full recovery.
My first major victory was my ability to put weight on my left foot. After that, I celebrated the removal of my stitches and the ability to shower normally. Next, I was able to walk on both feet and touch my toes without feeling pain. Now I am even able to bend my toes a bit. This made me feel especially victorious because it facilitated another accomplishment. Add this to my list - - I was able to bend my toes enough to polish my nails :)
Though they're not there quite yet, I am very close to looking upon normal feet again. Hooray.
