So it's Wednesday, December 21st, just short of 3pm & I'm perched on the couch, leg propped up and iced. If you follow me on IG or on my YouTube channel then you would know that last Friday I had foot surgery, better known as a bunionplasty, or to us non MD's, bunion removal surgery. I slowly acquired a bunion on my left foot that had been getting progressively worse over the years and as the pain became unbearable, I knew surgery was the only option.
So I say this with love:
TAKE CARE OF YOUR FEET! And yes, I realize that sounds both weird AND obvious, but it was something I neglected to do! Taking of your feet -and your body for that matter- is more than just bi-weekly pedicures, exercising and eating healthy. And though I take pride in doing all of those things, I failed to realize the importance of wearing good quality -and TRULY comfortable- shoes. And no, good quality does not necessarily mean expensive!
So for the next 8 weeks or so, I'll be wobbling around with a boot and crutches slowly trying to regain strength and balance in my left foot. And though I've definitely had a few moments of regret, I know it'll be worth it in the end.
Thank you all for the lovely get well wishes + comments as they truly mean the world to me.
Happy Holidays! -C
