Foot update

So it's been quite a while since the accident, but I'm finally in some physical therapy for the foot. Lately it's just been walking down stairs and walking for long periods of time that really bother the foot, but I figure it's better to get it done and have full motion than wait and hope it comes on its own.

The thing about physical therapy: they lure you into thinking it's all fun and games. First they let me stick my feet into a hot jacuzzi tub for fifteen minutes (heaven!), then after a couple exercises the assistant massaged my foot. It felt so good and nice... then they have to go and bring out the ice pack and ruin it for me. Oh well, c'est la vive.

(Oh, and I have to mention a big THANK YOU to my sister-in-law who gave me exercises long ago when we thought it was sprained. I started using those when the boot was off and it's definitely helped give me a head start. Hope you don't torture your patients with ice though!!!)


  1. I've heard physical therapy is no fun. I hope it gets you back on your "feet" soon! :)

    P.S. Doing lots of editing on Streets of Elangard. With all the England hype lately (cuz of the wedding) it's fun to take myself back to York for inspiration on Elangard Town. Ah... York... I miss that place!!! There's a video on my blog has the York Minster on it... yeah, total inspiration for King Morcum's palace. And the statue of Cesar? Yep... that's in the book too.

  2. Girl, you keep exercising so you can "put your foot down" when it matters. :)

  3. Two great foot puns! Love it! And keep on writing Amy! I'm excited to see future drafts :)
