The Surgery

*Note: This post has absolutely nothing book related in it. Well, it has just a tiny bit* :-)

If you've seen some of my posts or watched some of my videos, you've seen/heard that I'm having major surgery done on my feet. This post is to inform everybody if they'd like to know. :)

I have really horrible feet. I've had it since I was born. I have no arch in my foot and my feet lay inward, and when I walk/run/stand for a long time, they begin to hurt and swell and I can't walk on them for the next two days or so. 

So, we've found somebody who can help. I have no idea what this surgery is called (mainly because it's a super long name), but this is what the surgery will do to my left foot:

Fuses two bones to make them one
Add a bone to get an arch in my foot
Stretch my heel cord

And, because of everything that will be going inside my foot after the surgery, I can't put any weight on my left foot, or it could basically ruin my foot. 

So this is my process:
8 weeks with no weight on foot
8 weeks with specially made boot/cast on my foot

And then...
we do the right foot and the same process happens. I don't know when we'll do the right foot. All I know is this, I'm probably going to be missing 18 months of school. Of course, the teachers will come to my house and give me homework (blegh...), but I won't see any of my friends for 18 months.

But the good thing about having the surgery is that it will fix my foot and I get to read all the time! So hopefully, there will be even more reviews on here!

So as you read this right now, I'm having surgery done on my foot. This post was scheduled on January 15. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this, even though it doesn't deal with books. 



  1. I hope everything goes well!!

    1. Thanks! Everything went really great! Now I'm just in bed reading books all day long! :D

  2. Interesting book of surgery. I have seen amount of people who proud their self for chosen weight loss surgery. I am thinking that weight loss surgery is like door of happiness for every women or men who hiding their self from mirror.
