Butterfly on pink zinnia summer of 2020
Being Wise Eighteen June 6, 2021
On one Friday so much happened.
I saw my foot doctor for the second
time, and she said I could wear both
shoes now. I wore the sandal going in
and both shoes going out. I was afraid
of surgery. Instead, I could put on my
shoes. She recommended the brand
Altra, more toe room. We drove to
my old shoe store, and they brought
shoes to try on. Size 12, a little larger.
They fit perfectly and didn’t pinch
at all. “Do you want to wear these home?”
“Yes.” Then I needed medicine. Today,
if possible. I got an appointment for
2:15. “What now?” asked Janet. “The
library.” And we picked up the book
that had come in. Last, we went for my
appointment with Dr. Woods and his
nurse Deb. Once I had the prescription,
we went to CVS Drugstore. Dr. Woods
had already phoned it in. Then we went
home with shoes and pills. My feet
were tired, but I was triumphant.
I would heal now.
