Then, there came week seven post injury, week 5 post surgery. I felt more pain in my foot every so often, but it seemed to be tendon pain and was manageable.
The main distraction for this week was diving into my hobbies. I also was able to watch the partial solar eclipse!
I took a class at the local photography store about lighting and using a speedlight.
That same day I went to the range with husband so he could showcase teaching someone self defense skills in a wheel chair.
Later that afternoon I worked on my first maternity shoot with dear friends in their nursery. It was definitely a challenge not only using new gear for a new photography style…but also because my wheelchair limited my angles. But it was a fun challenge.
Other diversions I had included:
Finally playing and defeating Pokemon Sun
And reading all the things!
Husband and I even had a “paint night” painting some kindness rocks. (He bought the paint for future 3D prints…but said we could test them out.)
And most enjoyably, my coworkers visited me, bringing delicious food and a fun evening of laughter. :0)
