My Feet

Beckam wakes me, its 8:00 a.m. and I think to myself I want to sleep more but I don't, I get up.
Gabe and Bryn are out on a running with their Dad I'm wishing it was me, it was my plan this summer to run and play soccer games with the kids but something else happened I got Planter Fasciitis and it HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if that emphasizes it feet feel broken every single morning I wake up. It would take me up to 2 hrs to get them warmed up to the idea of walking. I would have to hold onto anything I walked by and sometimes limp.
But I finally went to a physical therapist and they diagnosed it and gave me some ideas to work with and heal it. I'm on the mend. Its bearable to wake up in the morning and walk, it only takes me 10 min to get my feet warmed up  now I've also gotta get used to the idea of having to wear shoes ALL THE TIME even in the house.
I'm sitting outside this morning taking in the wonderful morning air thanking my Heavenly Father for giving me a solution and looking forward to being able to run with the kids and play soccer again. I can't wait but unfortunately I have to.
There is a sock I should buy to wear when I sleep. It looks very awkward. Greg and I decided to make it with tape. So, we got a soccer sock and tape it all up, it felt very awkward thru the night but was worth it when I could walk the next morning. The next night the tape job came off so the next time we opted to use duck can do anything with duck tape. It worked perfectly. Just gotta get the sock now but I'll need 2 of them.

Doesn't this look awesome?!

I'm sorry Jess. There is nothing more frustrating than when you want to do something and your body won't let you. I hope it gets better quick!
