I'll take the hint...

...and not create a beauty blog. It's been four days and I've gotten more than 50 hits on my site since I posted my interest-generating post, and I didn't get one comment. Let me know if you just didn't get a chance to comment on it.

I finally have a cast on my left foot. Purple. It's cool having all these colors to choose from. When I was a kid, all I got were these plain white plaster casts. It wasn't until the fifth grade (when I had my 15th surgery) that I finally got to choose a cast color. I chose hot pink. And believe me, there is no soft pink.

So now, my foot is more comfortable. Pins will remain in for another two weeks, then I'll have another non-weightbearing cast put on for two more weeks. After that, I'll have a walking cast for about a month, then a cam-walker (air boot). Geez, I hope this is the last time I have to have surgery.

I told my doctor that if I ever have to have surgery again on my feet that I want both feet and ankles replaced. I was being sarcastic, but he said that they're working on perfecting that kind of surgery, and I'd be an excellent candidate! WOW!!! Can you believe that? I just hope it doesn't come to that. But if it does, maybe I'l be able to run again for the first time since I was about 10.

Happy Healing! By the way, purple is my favorite color.

Thanks. Blue is my favorite color, but I had blue when I had my right foot done. I'm travelling on the color spectrum.

Erica,

Hope you continue to make a rapid recovery, and that this is indeed the last surgery you need to have.

As for the beauty blog: I'm inclined to say, "If you build it, they will come". Why not give it a whirl?

Perhaps the lack of interest so far is because your blog is mainly frequented by "Lutheran blogospheronauts" - I'm sure Garrison Keillor would have a few words to say on the subject of Lutheran attitudes to beauty products :-) - and if you set up a separate beauty blog it would acquire its own audience.

I guess you're probably right. I mean, people will look for what they want.

As relates to surgeries, I really hope I never have to have anymore. Bone surgery is excruciating! I've never broken any bones before, but this has to be worse. At least now, I'm on the road to recovery and doing well.

Why do you need to keep having surgery on your feet? What's wrong with them?
