Foot injury healed

One day several years ago, I read the article “Speedy Recovery—a Motorcyclist’s Story” by Lynde McCormick (see The Christian Science Journal, May 2011) and was very inspired by it. Later that morning, I was sitting at the computer working when the phone rang. I jumped up to answer it, not realizing that my foot had gone to sleep. My foot bent as I stepped on it, and down I went. As my foot regained feeling, it hurt a little, but I didn’t think much of it, and I went on with my normal activities.

That evening I had an orchestra concert rehearsal to go to, and ended up parking some distance from the auditorium. I was very excited—this concert was to be led by a wonderful conductor with whom I’d played years earlier, and we were playing a piece that I really enjoyed. At some point during the rehearsal, I became aware that my foot was hurting. By the end of the rehearsal, I was nearly in tears from the pain.

Thankfully, another violinist whose car was parked nearby lent me his cane and offered to drive me to my car. Yet even with the cane, I could barely get to his car because it was painful to put any weight on my foot. Several of my friends urged me to have my foot looked at by a doctor, since it might have been broken.
