Day 11 post-bunion surgery.
My arms are getting ripped.
The one - and only - advantage of the crutches.
The foot is fine at this point. I can feel the occasional twinge when I stretch and it’s sorest when I wake up each morning, but nothing particularly painful. Nothing that a couple Advil can’t conquer.
I’ve ventured out the past two days - dinner at Panera, lunch at Wegmans. It’s interesting to note the reaction of people to someone on crutches. People couldn’t have been kinder at Panera - a 20-something man held the door open for me, a 60ish woman opened it a second time. Lots of people smiled.
At Wegmans - the Fayetteville branch at lunchtime - people basically gave me a wide berth, did not make eye contact and essentially ignored me. The cashier somehow expected me to contort myself over the counter to slide my credit card through her machine. When I explained that my arms, though incredibly toned, could not reach, she seemed a bit baffled.
I’ve had a lot of visitors. Dad has walked Tucker, mom has cooked, Maureen and then Donnie brought coffee, Kathleen brought coffee AND soup, Emily brought banana bread and the adorable Violet. Alaina brought white chocolate covered Oreos and the adorable Brandon.
People are nice.
Three more days until crutch freedom.

Soon, so soon, that scent. It’s growing.

A tiny, beautiful thing.
Found primarily in Central America (Mexico through Panama), the glasswinged butterfly’s name in Spanish is Espejitos which translates as little mirrors. In certain lights, the translucent wing parts have a glossy, almost reflective quality to them that makes their Spanish name effectively accurate. Whether they’re seen as glass or mirrors, though, there’s something absolutely fascinating about the way these butterflies’ wings offer a surreal look at the environment around the insect. It’s like they’re tiny ornaments designed to draw the eye to the scenic appeal of nature.
