My Painful Foot and Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #203!

I've recently learned two new terms concerning my inflamed bottom right foot. You see, this morning I had an appointment with an orthotist (a healthcare professional who provides splints, braces, and special footwear). He is assisting me with my painful plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the bottom of the foot). The orthotist has given me a night splint that I must wear when I sleep at night to stretch my Achilles tendon. He also has me wearing heel cups that I must use in my cross-trainers. I've been avoiding walking on my heel for months, and now I've been told that this has not been helping the situation. So, now I must push through the pain and put my weight on the full foot. I'm also told to stay off my feet as much as possible, something I was doing already. It's very debilitating and the family has been taking strain. Any prayers are appreciated! Above and below are recent photos of my feet (my version of a selfie) and one with me wearing my new night splint.
