When One Week Turns Into Six…

I have stated in previous posts that I had foot surgery this week. I thought I was going to be off work for a week. Well I just went to the first follow-up appointment and it turns out I will be off for not one but six weeks.

The doctor said although it looks like the growth removed is not cancer, I still need to give it adequate time to heal properly. He told me today that I am not allowed to drive for about six weeks. The fact that the growth was on the bottom of my driving foot plays a big part in this. My doctor would rather go the cautious route and be sure I am properly healed before getting back to my normal life.

Now I just have to explain to my boss that I will be off much longer than anticipated. I am hoping that my ability to work from home will be in my favor. This longer recovery period will mean that my two surgeries will overlap. I think this will be a good thing because when I do come back I will be back for good. I hope my bosses see it this way also. So much in life is unpredictable I have learned one has to go with the flow. You can only plan so much but in the end it is God that determines what will ultimately happen.

  1. It’s good to hear that even if it isn’t what you had planned ~ that you are being optimistic and seeing the sunny side! 😉 You are right that we can make all the plans that we want but God is the one in control. My Priest always says “there are no coincidences”. I agree with him! Maybe you could take up some craft… like knitting or crochet?

  2. My motto is “Everything Happens for a Reason”. I might not know why this has happened, but since I have no control I might as well make the most of it. I will be kept busy doing work from home and of course blogging. I do think, however, I am going to get back to a favorite past time of mine…reading.
