All American Surgery Update - Five Months

I will be honest with you, friends and random internet strangers. The last few weeks have been some of the most difficult I can remember. I am so frustrated to be nearly half a year out from the surgery and to be struggling this much, and it is 100% because of the screws in my ankle and heel. Anytime I do much beyond barely walking all day, there is swelling and a lot of discomfort.

That wouldn't be so bad if this wasn't the busiest time of year for me at work combined with what is about to be a very busy time in my personal life. At work it is my favorite season. We have 3-5 school programs each week, with as many as 110 fourth grade students learning and exploring my museum. It is the reason I am in this profession, and there is nothing that makes me happier. Added to that, in June we have 2 major events, plus I'm planning an exhibit, plus a number of smaller events. so there is a lot happening!
