Self shot taken today in my studio, to be replaced with better photos taken by one of my friends……at Red Rock.
Taken on my dear friend’s 50th birthday….still with the awkward fiberglass splint up the back of my leg and underneath it!
After wearing a fiberglass splint on my left ankle and foot since the 10th of May and then having a large heavy boot stuck on my foot from Valley Hospital 2 days ago, I took my shower last night with both feet on the shower matt and tested my ankle out; I have absolutely no pain in my ankle and full range of motion in my ankle.
I just have a tiny tiny bit of pain in one of my toes which is nothing to be able to be wearing a Frankenstein boot for. I walk normally now pain free, not requiring the cane and my life can resume again without hobbling around in slow motion.
I think for all good purposes, my foot’s fine.
I’m going to go back and resume everything I did before.
I’m so happy I have two legs again. Sometimes we don’t need to understand everything in this world. I only know I was very disgruntled yesterday and wondered if God forgot about me and said “if you are a compassionate God let Live and compassion rain down on me and health. Wealth and love.”
You know you have to consider the source of what people tell and discern if yoy think they are lies or truth.
I knew that when I took that boot off last night and I took a shower- the first shower I’ve been able to take with both feet on the ground, without bandages or a splint on my legs or having to put a bag on my leg when I shower…..
I looked in shock as i mived mt ankle around having full motion and no pain. I ASKED MYSELF, why the heck am I wearing this dumb thing? I wasn’t married to rocket scientist for nothing when I realized I had no pain whatsoever in my ankle and was able to move it I knew the injury was not anywhere near what they thought or else it healed in the month.
I am still still taking kwgal action against RTC for turning me down for para- transit service, but I won’t have to be I won’t have to wait to live life.
I don’t know what happened last night only that I said some of the biggest prayers that I have ever said my life.
I’m able minded and wsnted to be able bodied again so I can walk to bus stops that get me all over Las Vegas.
I couldn’t be happier and I know that people all over the world are praying for me, just like you all prayed for a miraculous recovery for my left wrist, and it healed.
You are the people who inspire me, touch me, enflame my heart and ignite my soul.
I know my Christian friends are praying for me and all those prayers combined together can heal and can make a difference.
Thank you again for your support that you’ve been over the last two and a half years with Totally Inspired Mind. I’d spent the last two and a half weeks just trying to get in to see a specialist and the medical system is really bad in Nevada.
The doctors and hospitals have a really low quality of care unlike California where I grew up.
I will go some place and get my foot and ankle x-rayed again and I make you a bet when the X rays come out it will show that my foot is healed.

With this holiday it is not the war’s we are remembering, instead, we are remembering those who served and those who gave all of their devotion in order to insure that the freedoms that this country offers would be able to be passed on to the next generations.
I wanted to take a minute and share with everyone the significance of Memorial Day to me and, I believe, to all of us.
On Memorial Day, we take time to remember all of the soldiers that died so that we can have our freedom. They remind us of the cost of freedom and of the quality of our character as a nation. We do not gather on this holiday to glorify wars. Rather, we are…

We make choices every day. Sometimes we choose not to make a decision which means something unfolds not necessarily to our liking. Through my illness and recovery I am finding out all sorts of things about myself regarding boundaries and inner authority. On occasion, we have to decide upon a direction in life and go with it. Other times, we find the choice propels us in a direction that is surprising.
I had been in recovery a couple of hours when a man came by, wanting to bring me to my room. I was a bit gnarly with him because at last memory the nurse said I was not stable. I was not going with him until I had clearance from a medical staff person. There I was, fog-brained, but fighting against the inconvenience of this man needing to wait longer than he thought necessary to transport me. I am…

If you look at a challenge through worldly eyes, fear will be in control.
However, if you look at that same challenge through godly eyes, you’ll see an opportunity for God to use you.
For God’s hand to remain in control.
The challenge will become a blessing.
Choosing to let go of a child is a blessing?
Searching through piles of help wanted ads?
Choosing to love the unloving?
Yes. Because you know God is here.
He’ll find that job, give you HIs love for that unloving person, and anything else you ever need.
Blessing or curse?
Fear or faith?
Which eyes will you filter your life through?
After many hours at Valley Hospital tonight, they took off the very poorly done splint UMC put on the 10th of May when I came in with a fractured ankle and part of my foot. I also got two referrals to an orthopedic doctor that was suppose to have an instant opening, unlike UMC who referred me to one who has no openings until November!
Pray each one if you that I will get in no problem and that the feature isn’t bad as and heals quickly. I am not sure if a cast will be put on or not.
The 27th I have my first appointment with my new internal medicine doctor who can write badly needed referrals to any further orthopedic doctors, and a mammagram, new glasses, teeth cleaning, and write a prescription for a motorized scooter, which will help me every day, even if I hadn’t fractured my ankle.
At least now, when I take a shower I can take the boot off and shower, instead have a fiberglass and bandage splint covered with a plastic bag on my foot and leg!
Pray I find a good attorney so I can sue RTC who turned me down for paratransit saying I wasn’t disabled enough! I guess I am now….but only temporarily.
