Flash Forward Friday

So I am pretty excited about what happened at Physical Therapy yesterday, I put weight on my ankle!  Yes!  I am truly making progress and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  It seems like this healing process is taking forever.  I have been thinking about it and I think part of the reason that it feels like it’s taking so long is simply that we live in such a “now” society that I want healing to happen instantly.  However, the Father, in His infinite wisdom, made the body perfectly and I need to respect that and the healing process.  It’s funny that I can be so patient when I’m making bread from scratch or when I’m baking or cooking something.  I enjoy the process, so maybe that’s why I can be patient when it comes to that sort of thing. 


The thing that I have noticed though, especially in the last couple of days is that my calf and ankle are swelling.  I have been trying not to take the pain meds simply because I feel like I’ve been pretty much taking them since the end of August.  Yes, I know that is bad for me to take it for so long.  I had a reaction to 2 different medications in less than a month.  That’s pretty scary for me.  I will say that I have been reading more since I have been down.  I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy it.  Happy Friday!
