What we conquered!
My surgery ended up being just over 2 hours. The removed a significant amount of my Achilles and then a section of tendon from my foot to rebuild it. Doc J promised to send me a picture of him (I begged to keep it, but was told every time- no.) He did text it to me and it was amazing.
I remember how scared we were, it was a tough summer. My body reacted to the stress and pain by sucking on the pounds, 30 to be exact. But, I'm not scared anymore, at least in the same way. Instead, I am scared that my body is going to backfire on me. I've been so naughty to it and I need to stop. I've noticed that I am not feeling good most of the time and I hate that feeling. It's time to take back my life. I do have 6 more months before I'm released, so I will be careful. But, I am going to take a stand and make sure I am more in the moment with what I am doing.
