I am a shoe snob. I absolutely love my Ariat and Dansko boots. They grip the snow (especially the Ariats) like no bodies business. They work really well for getting in and out of the high step vehicles we have. However, we have discovered that I walk better in my tennis shoes. BUT, my tennis shoes don't keep my feet warm. We woke up to -50 this morning.
Do you know how hard it is to find winter boots in January that have a skinny sole...especially if you live in Alaska and have very limited shopping? I finally found and ordered some that I hope will work, but I can't try them on until they get here, and they were not cheap. Of course there is no price on being able to walk, so I really hope they work.
We got the preliminary results of my ct. My brain I guess is working overtime to repair itself. Other than the fact that I should be dead (the doc who read it was so shocked, he actually texted hubby) everything is about the same. The only theory we can come up with is that my brain has limited real estate now, and my hand and leg are competing for that small space. Right now my hand is winning. I have had big gains (or at least what I would call big) in the use of my hand lately but losses in walking. My hand is now no longer a dead limb on my right side and my knuckles almost match my left (they were red) and I can finally bend the top joint called the DIP for short.
So we continue to look for answers. We have discovered that I walk better in my bedroom on the carpet than anywhere else, so on some subconscious level, maybe it is the hard floor my feet don't like. Unfortunately, the rest of my house has hard floor except the bedrooms. My feet are just going to have to get over it.
