Re: Broken Bunion
I'm almost (but not quite) twice her age ... and my bunions didn't start getting "bad" until about 10 years ago. Remind her that she'll be a "granny" before her time if she doesn't get them fixed. But in time, she'll probably figure that out on her own.
Getting bunions fixed does take quite a commitment and a lot of determination. Each of us has to decide whether it is worth it. At year's end, I will have spent over 4 months this year with a cast on one of my feet. I have just under 3 weeks to go before I can start walking on both feet again. Am I tired of this cast and having to hop, roll, and peg-leg around? Yes. Has it been worth it? You bet!
And before I close, I'll tell you something funny my husband once wrote to me ... He was listing why he loved me, and he said, "I love your King Kong, petite feet!" I laughed so hard I almost cried. I still have that piece of paper, and it is one of my favorite memories of him. Before then, I had been very sensitive about my feet. I'm almost 5'10" tall, and yes, I do have big (and newly improved) feet, and he loved me anyway. What a guy.
Take care and give your wife a hug!
