Ugly feet...

the Dailymile is running a contest. Share your ugly feet! 

well, I had ugly feet! they're still funny looking, but not so bad. 

I had a bunion on my right foot. Here's the journey of my new foot! 

The night before surgery, bye bye bunion! bye bye foot pain!

Just got home from! Its really numb! and hasn't swollen up yet. 

Day 2! Here's the swelling! and the freaky colours! Oh my! Still numb!

Have to add some humour, the toes got cold! 

1 week, still swollen, still funky colours. Not much pain (as long as I don't throw a hissy fit over a cupcake and refuse to take the painkillers....) 

Stuck on the couch for 2 weeks.....no one would look good after that! especially since the kid kept taking my ice packs....

6 weeks post surgery! time for the pins and packing to come off! YAY! EWWWWW! and now it feels fragile. 

Wow! cleaned it up and it feels so much better! strange not having all the bandaging on there. Felt mighty naked for a while. There's nothing holding the foot together anymore! no pins, or bandages or padding. 

Cover up the pinholes, don't want anything getting in there. 

6 weeks after surgery, WOW! its so straight! 

8 weeks, finally found a pair of shoes! Still extremely swollen and tender.

A few months later I did the Walk to End breast cancer - slow and steady I managed to finish the 60k (with a couple of rides of course). 

Umm, ok thats not true. I managed to fracture it during the walk. 

Then I learned to run......
