Amanda and I spent this morning at the hospital, where she had foot surgery for the third and, hopefully, final time! She had still been experiencing pain in her foot, but it wasn't completely unbearable. We decided to see an orthopedic surgeon this time, as the podiatrist had just recommended inserts for her inserts. The new doctor said the bone had not completely fused together and recommended a bone graft from her ankle. This meant 8 weeks off her foot! She was at first resistant, but we thought it would be better to get it done than spend the next 60 years wondering why she didn't get it done when she had the opportunity.
She won't be able to work for a while, but the bright side, is this gives her a little extra time to finish up her graduate school applications!
