I truly did not realize how much better this last round would go until it was all over and the sense of relief washed over me like a clean shower. I actually believe that it sped up my recovery and healing for this second foot surgery which was certainly a welcome and unexpected outcome.
I never even remotely thought that the third and final surgery of the year would bring with it such a profound sense of joy upon completion. It really pointed out to me how much we store in our subconscious. As much as I was happy with each successive surgery thoughout the year I believe that the knowledge that there still remained future surgeries influenced my sense of happiness and satisfaction. Little did I know what a sense of "completion" I would feel when all four surgeries were done!
