Through The Years

Me through the years. See me with my camera at the age of ten?? I have loved cameras ever since. Just for a hobby though. I'm not a pro.

I was 15 years old here. Had one foot operated on so far and you can see the cast I have on. I had to have what they called "The Jones Procedure". It's a tendon transplant. They take tendons from one part of my foot and transplant them into another. I used to walk on the ball of my foot a lot. Now I can't even get on my toes with either foot. The doctors say now that it wasn't a good idea to do that operation. Because where they took the tendon from is now bad. I have a drop foot because of it. And both of my big toes were fused at the top joints. But at least I never walked on the ball of my foot again..

This is not a good photo but it's me with my cousin Jane. She had broke her leg and I had a cast on one foot and a brace on the other. During the time of getting my feet operated on. She thought that was neat at the time..
