Well after meeting with my orthopedic specialist yesterday and I  finally stopped crying I’ve come to realize this has to be done and there is no other way around it and it is what it is. After she did more xrays of my foot and ankle she found that the arthritis has progressed into my big toe where I received an injection for pain relief. She took 45 minutes to explain my xrays and the procedure she will do. In essence my entire left foot will be reconstructed to bring it back to it’s proper position currently it points out to the left, there will be a cleaning out of the arthritis and debris, she will have to put screws in my ankle because I have no more cartilage and titanium plates in my foot, SMH  I wasn’t expecting to hear about the plates, but it is what it is. The procedure will take 4-5 hours and I will not be able to use my foot for about 3 months in order to heal properly. She will meet with my family on the 23rd, to explain to them the procedure and my home care and answer any questions they may have. My surgery is scheduled for Oct. 3rd until then I must continue to wear the Arizona boot so I don’t brake or fracture the ankle it’s that fragile. So I solicit the prayers of my friends, family, church family. I must be honest in saying this is weighing heavy on me, my quality of life right now is not sitting well mentally with me. Thanks to those of you who took the time to read my post and who are praying and will continue to pray for me. 
