My ridiculous foot is my foot 90 days after surgery! I went the doctor at the beginning of this week for my check up and it's really been hurting after such a busy last month.

I do my x-rays....and comes in and shows me that my foot is STILL broken in two places. It's a clear break all the way through the bones.

So those two areas are where it is broken and the shape of the break is a V - where the doctor cut the bone. For some reason it is not healing. So next Tuesday I will get a bone stimulator to use on my foot each night for one month. This is to help the bones mend back together. She put me on reduced range of motion - especially after one night of exercising my toe and I felt it slip. I could barely move my body I was in shock and pain. I couldn't even cry it hurt so bad. I just laid there in shock.

Not only is everything still broken but my foot is still swollen where all the soft tissue was cut and the hole where the pin stuck out still hurts. She said this will probably take 8 - 9 months to heal. Funny - no one told me this before having surgery!

Home from Honduras and ready for work

The largest KFC I've ever seen in the middle of town in Honduras.

The group took me out for some major Honduras food --- ha ha --- hamburger and fries and a Cherry Bomb Martini! We had a great time!

Hanging with the girls - Teresa, Kate, and Donna at the Copantl Steak House!!
Bought some pottery on the way back home. Absolutely beautiful - and the little dude on the left. I set up all my shelves with stuff from countries I've been. Love it.

Missing the blizzard!

A few shots flying over to Honduras. The shoreline is sooo cool from the sky!

Thought this was interesting because it looks like half of it is under water!

Little restaurant in the sky we ate at last night. Very good food.

View from the restaurant - the mountains are beautiful!

Well while I'm in Honduras this week it seems that my house has been hit with another blizzard. Work shut down again for a snow day. I can only imagine the pain it's going to be to get home on Friday at midnight! Luckily we have Monday off so I can three days to recover.

View from my room last night over the mountains!

Blizzard 2010 - thundersnow

Opened the back door to let the puppy out at 7am! It's a super heavy and wet snow that is very very cold. Nothing like our December blizzard!

Back deck - it's up over my knees by 7am and we have another 8 hours of snow to come! Looks like we're hitting 30+ inches for this one. Who knows when we'll be able to get out. Good thing I stood in line for 2 hours at the grocery store the other night!

back deck

Opened the front door - the wind has been blowing so hard the snow has covered all the windows and doors.

The front yard - I don't even know where the street is and probably won't see if for a few days! I have to travel to Honduras on Monday night - we'll have to see how that works out!

Historic Winter Storm

Almost makes a blizzard sound exciting....but then I just spent 2 1/2 hours at the store with everyone else in Maryland! See below............doesn't it sound like fun!!! This is the second one in two months!

Virginia: 7 - 9 AM | Maryland/West Virginia: 11 AM -12 PM
Southern PA: 1 - 2 PM | DelMarVa: 2 - 3 PM | Central PA: 4 PM
Northern PA: 10 PM Friday - 12 AM Saturday

This will be an historic and extremely heavy, wet snowfall of 20 to 26 inches for much of the Northeast I-95 corridor from Virginia to central New Jersey. We urge citizens to heed public safety advisories from local and state authorities as well as the National Weather Service while preparing for this crippling event.
