It's a well known fact that I work very hard for a living...

Although I'd prefer it if she didn't sound so surprised when she says it.

So with that in mind, I returned to work this morning after two days of foot-related sick leave. Having strolled the corridors of Lewes Hospital all day, I can confidently say that my foot is marching heel-to-toe along the road to recovery. It still feels weird to be walking normally though. I'm far more used to limping, so I don't feel comfortable unless I'm hobbling along like a polio victim. I'm convinced I'm going to fall over if I start taking even-paced strides.

This time last week, I'd have been laid up on the sofa after a full day's clinic, unable to get a cup of tea without physically leaning on the furniture or verbally leaning on Lisa, but today is mercifully different. I've done a hard day's work (that's not the different bit), yet I'm managing to stand without a cocktail of painkillers or an outbreak of fire on the sofa.

So steroids are definitely the way forward. It's no wonder Ben Johnson looked so good at the Seoul Olympics. Frankly if this improvement continues, I could give him a run for his money myself.

The surgeon had to saw my leg off before I walked without a limp.  Well done.
