Early spring in my garden a few years ago.
Being Wise 16
I had to wait a week to see the doctor.
It hurt to walk, less if I took Tylenol
and soaked my right foot in Epsom Salt
water. I made muffins, less strenuous
than making bread. I missed my homemade
bread. The doctor fitted me with a kind of
shoe. It helped. The next day I made bread.
I was tired but relieved I'd have my own
bread again for toast and sandwiches.
The muffins got me through, but the bread
is cause for celebration. I walk more
easily, balance better. I'm reading a favorite
author. That helps. Soon I may walk outside
again. Dr. Williams knows what she's doing.
