Stumbling into the New Year

The last post I wrote was about not rushing into starting things for this year. This has turned out to be a very ominous post. A week after my post I started to have toe and knee pain related to my foot deformity. It turns out that I will need surgery. Now, I know what you are thinking…what a bummer but I try to be in good spirits when I receive unexpected news. As people with chronic illnesses, we understand that something little can always be a bigger issue.  I am hoping that this will lessen some of the chronic pain that occurs on a daily basis. Whatever the case, I plan to make the best of this situation and hope that I will be able to start my resolutions after I recover. I will leave you with this quote “Look ahead, because life is before you, not behind you, or else you stumble!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan

  1. Best to you with your surgery. My daughter having CMT1a had reconstructive foot surgery last fall and it went well. She is planning to have her other foot done in a few months. The pain and inconvenience to Life was worth it for her. Hope it helps you too. Surgeons have amazing tools and technology available to help create successful results.
