Thank you all for your care and concern about my foot.  It was extremely painful  for the first 3 days and is a bit better now.

Dick and I have come to the Northern Coast of Spain to a little apartment on the beach for 5 days of R & R, so that I can stay off of my foot.  Today is our last day here.  My foot still hurts and I can’t walk normally on it.  So with the utmost regret I think I will have to postpone the remainder of the trek until the healing is complete and I have the alloted time to return to Spain.  I’ll be forever grateful to Dr. David for his diagnosis, support and advice about caring for my foot.  And also to my supportive husband Dick, who has been with me every step of the way.

I do plan to finish this walk.  It has not gotten the best of me.  I’ve done 12 days and have 21 left to go.  And as Arnold Schwarzenegger says, “I’ll be back!”
