Hi friends! I want to share with you the finish that is the first of THREE of these I must make for my adult children. These are in memory of Winky, Madeleine's eleven year old blue parakeet that died just a couple of months ago.
I was given this ornament by our friend Sally 💗
And I was given these gifts by our friend June 💗
I continue on in daily pain with plantar fasciitis. It has developed in my left foot also now.😬
I have two physical therapists. That is the way they do it at this particular site. You alternate seeing two different people. I have Alyson and Luke. I like them both, but...LUKE. Good grief! One exercise he had added was heel raises. Then he had me do them with the front of my foot elevated. Then he said if I wanted I can add a back pack to my back with a milk jug in it for resistance. Is he nuts?! Listen, kid, you told me I will get well on my own even without PT!! I do remember that! I am still thinking of bailing out. I am not kidding. He is no longer doing the "foot manipulations" or rough massage or whatever you wanna call it. The stuff I thought seemed worth going to the appointments for. He had me doing leg presses last week! I have never used a leg press machine in my life! I am scared of what we will do next time!
I am very glad I saw Alyson on Monday. She asked how it was going and I told her that Luke asks me to try to keep slowly increasing the treadmill time. I told her I realized I cannot. It is hurting me. I told her I decided I am backing it back down to 11 minutes twice daily and that is it. Any more than that and it causes pain. She said you are smart. You must listen to your feet. We don't know what your feet are telling you. I think we are pushing you too fast too soon. We also discussed shoe stuff since Alyson suffers from plantar fasciitis herself. Then she asked me, "What is the best thing I could do to help you today?" Boy did that make me happy. I told her the foot manipulation stuff. So she did that. After I got home, I cancelled my appointment for Luke for today! HA! 😁 Don't know what excuse I am giving, but it is cancelled.
I thank you for stopping by today my friends! I am very glad you did. 💗 I hope you have a great week! It is REALLY COLD here! It will be only 17 degrees today.🥶
Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. John 12:24-25
