Fillet O'Feet: Or, How to shut down the blog...

My wife gave herself a kind of unconventional birthday present Wednesday. She had surgery on both feet. She had Plantar Facitis, which means that the sheet of connective tissue that goes across the bottom of her foot and is what makes the arch of her foot arch had shrunk due to adhesions/scar tissue. This caused her arches to be much higher than they should be. She developed this when she was pregnant with our second child. She has been wearing orthotic inserts in her shoes for four years and they have not helped. So Wednesday she had a Tarsal Release performed on both feet. Life at home has been stressful to say the least for the last couple days. Between having to work extra hours to make up for the time lost taking her to/from the hospital, and having a project at work that MUST be done by Monday, and the lost sleep to help her take her pain pills every 4 hours (she has to take them with food, guess who gets to make her a bowl of cereal...) and an 11 year old that does not want to help around the house, especially when it comes to helping with her sister, and a 4 year old that refuses to cooperate with anyone about, eating, dressing, taking a bath, going to bed, or even getting out of bed when told to. As a result, I really don't have the time and/or energy to blog much this week, as much as I'd really like to. Stay tuned, maybe this weekend will be better.....
