Truly I am. The response to my Gofundme page has been amazing. Since Saturday I’ve gotten three quarters of the way to my goal. It’s really incredible the way friends and family have stepped up to help me through this difficult time.
I saw the Foot Surgeon Monday and she said I’m looking at about another month of recovery and healing. I’m chomping at the bit to go back to work but it’ll have to wait a few more weeks while my foot heals up where the abcess was drained.
I’m really touched that so many people thought of me. Even with my insurance this still ended up costing me a pretty penny and I’m overjoyed that I don’t really need to agonize about much outside of getting better.
I’m still off my RA meds while I’m finishing up the antibiotics, so all I can do about that is ibuprofen and the occasional prednisone. Even the prednisone I’m being sparing with as it can inhibit healing. Thankfully I haven’t been flaring up too much lately. That, and my darling Shannon has been so amazing and accommodating throughout this process. I’ll be alright, just gotta stay focused and be patient.
To everyone who donated or shared the link, thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.
