Well, despite one day of accidentally over-doing it and bragging all over social media then paying for it, I think I’m officially past the stay-in-jammies-all-day stage of post-op bunion surgery recovery. Sure it takes a little longer than usual to get ready, but for the past three days I’ve had “events” and have found ways to style around my cast, crutches and even a wheelchair and I have photo evidence to prove it!
Event 1 – Book Club
(Okay, these aren’t, er, major, events but at this stage anything that requires me to get out of the house counts, so there.)
Event 2 – Dance Performance Numero Uno
My daughter’s final dance performance was on Saturday and since I was worried about walking too far on crutches and having my foot down too long, I rented a wheelchair from local Home Care and gained an entirely new perspective.
Event 3 – Dance Performance Two
My son’s final dance performance was Sunday at the Jubilee and again, I took my wheels and made extra sure I wouldn’t flash the even-bigger community when elevating my leg by wearing the only pants-option I have right now…
There you have it. I think skirts and dresses will be my post-up style staples until the cast comes off! Luckily I have one or two lying around! 🙂
