We saw some animals. Very big.

She was a little disappointed that she was not tall enough for some of the bigger rides. But, the carousel is always a big hit.

She did get her first roller coaster.

And, she liked the four-wheelers.

We seemed to win lots of prizes.

She had an unfair advantage with this game but she beat a bunch of adults so it was okay.

Slowly Getting Back on Track

17 Aug

In case you were curious, foot surgery is really not that much fun. It has been a little over two weeks and things are starting to improve. I had some complications at first- not being able to walk being the biggest. I then had the pleasure of being put in a hard cast up to my knee. And, then I ended up in the ER with symptoms of a blood clot. Luckily, it was just a chest cold. Then, I finally got out of the hard cast and was having ankle issues. Now, I am finally on a upswing but still in a walking boot/cast thing for 5 more weeks.

Who knew one little bone could cause all sorts of issues? I now have franken-foot.
