Howdy 👋I'm combining 2 blogs into one today because I can :-P its my 2 week anniversary today since my OI surgery...let's celebrate 🎉💃
This morning I woke up feeling like I'd slept less than an hour...Monday nights pain had escalated 10 fold and I was almost in tears :-( I hate that we can't quite pinpoint the cause but the staff are AMAZING and doing everything they possibly can to keep me comfortable. We can't determine if it's bone pain or tendon pain or a bit of both but Munjed (my surgeon) is calling in tonight after his surgeries to see me so hopefully we'll suss out a plan!
I had a FANTASTIC day today though!!! My brother from another mother Justin took his first steps 🚶🚶🚶 2 weeks to the day of his single above knee Osseo surgery, he's up on his new leg and walking up and down the parallel bars! Was so excited to be a part of his first steps and to see how easy Osseo is for putting on and taking off the leg! It has me super excited for the next stage for me 👣
I had visits from the lovely Bill & Nina Chalk who we were lucky enough to meet at the Victor Chang Ball back in 2014.I also caught up with Jason post his stage 2 surgery this morning and he's doing so great 🏋
I truly love the family I've made throughout this journey so far and I know we'll be lifelong friends xxx
