I thought it was time to update those concerned about my well-being.
You see a couple of years ago I discovered a lump on the bottom of my left foot, as time progressed I was diagnosed with something called “Charcotte foot syndrome”. Thanks to the diabetes I deal with.
This condition causes weakness and disintegration of the connective tissue that holds the bones together of the feet. This normally only affects one side, nobody said I was normal because due to a sprained right ankle, horse accident, my ankle degraded and had to have my right foot amputated in early December. Hard to work horses on one foot.
I go in this Thursday to get the fitting started for a prosthesis. I am currently residing in Prineville at the Regency Assisted Living facility. This down time is one tough cookie to crack. One night out of a dead sleep slammed face first when there was no leg to support me in a rush to the bathroom, “I forgot”
If all goes well I’m told I’ll be back to work this spring. I do believe I have not done my best work yet. So thank you to all the well wishers and I’ll see you in the springtime.
Keep your eyes on the trail,
