After bilateral foot surgery the first smile was unexpected. I could see space between my big and next toe. This I had not been able to do for years. Visions of thongs flashed before my eyes. The possibilities could be endless. Another smile – the pain has not been too bad. I just have to remember not to cat stretch on waking. That causes the pain I had anticipated I would have all the time. Huge smile — I don’t. However, there is a lot of adjusting to do. I cannot walk. I have a special boot that allows me to hobble but just moving from one room to the other is an effort that then requires half an hour of rest. Trying to do anything is laboriously slow. Luckily, another smile, my mother has lent me her mobility scooter so I can still go on dog walks. As we are trying to sell our house we are avoiding the park as I simply cannot wash Muffin after every visit and Bundy seems to bring back so much sand. Yesterday we decided to walk on paths. Muffin heels beside the scooter perfectly. Big smile – our training has paid dividends. We did, however, overwalk poor Bundy to the point he sat and refused to budge. We were stymied. Our smiles faded. B
But then I managed to entice him to ride along with me. A little awkward for us both but it worked a treat. You can even see Bundy’s smile.
Mine was just as big.
