Foot surgery update: Part 2

Today is the 2-week mark since my foot surgery!  I am so excited to be done with this process and even more excited that in 2-3 weeks I should be able to run again.

Today I had my appointment for my 2-week post-op visit and my stitches were to get removed today.  Since the surgery on December 20th, my foot has been wrapped up and the stitches were starting to itch (a good sign that the wound is healed).

Ben drove me through the snow and ice to get to my doctor's appointment and I am so happy to say that I got an all-clear and I got the stitches removed!  Woot Woot!
