When I got into a brutal car accident, my foot could not be saved.
They actually had to take a good section of my shin and everything which was a miserable experience for me.
Fortunately, I was able to get a surgery done where they put an artificial limb there with a rather advanced foot that is actually not too difficult to walk on. While it was a challenge in the very beginning getting used to it, I have been thankful ever since the surgery. I was worried that my life was basically ruined. I’ve always enjoyed running and not even being able to walk was something that was scary to me. When my uncle offered to pay for the surgery, I was ecstatic. There certainly was no way I would have been able to afford such a thing. He said his heart was broken when he learned about my accident and he wanted to do whatever he could to help. Well, now I have a nice place of my own with excellent HVAC and temperature control settings. I have a smart thermostat so I can easily adjust the temperature to my liking, especially after I come back home from running! That’s right, I have learned to run again and I am loving every moment of it. At first I was concerned that I might not be able to put that much pressure on my artificial limb and foot, and the doctors assured me it was designed to be able to take a beating, and I have been working hard. Hard enough to warrant the use of the A/C system all the time and that’s why I ended up getting a smart thermostat, so I can really crank the A/C before I run back home.
