A step in the right direction

Friday 3 December 2010

This post is going to be extremely random, but i HAD to blog about it!
I bet your all sitting there thinking.. oh is that it!? but to me, it's a proud moment!
It's one step closer to recovery and getting rid of these stupid crutches!
My operation wasn't simple either.. i'll give you an outline as to why & what happened.
I was bullied about the way i walked, so i got it checked out, i walked with both feet in-toeing. It was later found that i happen to have an 'inversion of my hips' which means that my pelvis is formed in such a way that my legs point inwards. I had my left leg operated on in 2007, and later again in 2008. On the 14th October 2010 i had my right leg operated on. The operation is called a 'Femoral Osteotomy' and required my leg to be opened, my thigh bone(femur) to be broken in half, twisted 35 to 40 degrees outwards and plated with 6 screws. I was in hospital for a week and it was extremely painful. In about a years time, i will have to have it operated on again to have the plate removed. I also need further work done to my pelvis and hip joint to stop me needing an early hip replacement. I had my operations done at RNOH Stanmore, which is a truly amazing hospital, and the physio they're currently giving me is amazing. (plus, he's extremely gorgeous!)
But yeah.. so this 'first step' literally for me is great!

I found this picture on a friends tumblr and had to save it!
I will definately be making these little beautys!
- A simple recipe for the cupcakes

mmm going to be making these in the next couple days
