  Dear Jeanna,
     I have to get going, but I wanted to let you know that you are doing a great job. As long as you keep trying to walk and bear weight you will get there eventually. I know you have had a hard time the last two months. I am so sorry you are healing so slowly. Jusdt keep at it and keep trying each day. It will come, it is just going to be slow. I know you are trying every day. You are doing a great job!!

Looking forward to your post after ypu have your appointment. are you doing physical therapy? that would help you bear weight better. Slow and steady. i know that it seems for healing to occur that it is taking forever and you will never get there. I have the greatest confidence in you that you will try your best in your recovery. try to be patient and keep in touch with your doctor's office. They can calm your fears that pop up occasionally. I know about them. LOL. Your doing great. Stay strong.
