I had surgery to remove a bunion on my foot on Friday. I have to be off my feet for four weeks. I'm already going bonkers. I have a 7 (almost 8) month old so my mom's best friend is staying with us. I'm going batty with no alone time. Argh. And since I am a complete klutz and fell on my face the first day I was on the crutches, my husband went out and got a wheelchair for me. I couldn't hack it as a paralyzed person, that's for sure. I will never take walking and carrying my baby at the same time for granted again.

Please let these next few weeks fly by!

Fingers xx that the wks go by fast and your foot heals well. Probably better to have it done now though before baby is walking.

My MIL lived with us for about 2 months (before we ever had kids) and it drove me crazy. Having someone around all of the time is exhausting.

I would be so stir-crazy! Hope you're able to stay off your feet completely and heal quickly.

I hope your foot heals quickly. I can't imagine being on crutches with a baby.

The crutches didn't work. I couldn't maneuver at all, even with just myself let alone a baby. It's hell even with the wheelchair. I am SO over this. Over it, over it, over it.

My foot finally stopped hurting but today was really bad. I can't believe I still have three weeks of this junk.
