To my delight, he revealed that the issues with my insurance adjuster have finally been resolved. The foot had arrived in the office, and we received complete authorization to proceed. I felt like a young girl on Christmas morning; I actually squealed with delight. Timmy, not knowing the reason but eager to join the fun, happily danced around the kitchen with me as we celebrated the new leg windfall.
Ironically, earlier this week I wrote about my leg finally healing and feeling better. With the skin intact, this is the perfect time to begin the process for a new socket. Finally, the stars have aligned, and I am going to begin to build a new leg. I'm not looking forward to the process, but having a leg that fits perfectly will be worth the effort.
Today I am chaperoning a field trip, so I am not able to see Elliot to begin my new leg until Monday. I'm a little bummed out that I have to wait through the weekend, but after 14 months I suppose a few more days doesn't matter. If everything goes well, this will be the last weekend on my current leg. I can't wait to put my new leg through its paces, hopefully it will provide me with the functionality I need to keep up with an ever quickening Timmy!
