Re: KG's Surgery
Wow, thanks everyone for your support. The ankle is healing; whether it's healing well or not is hard to tell, but I assume so since its in a cast just as if I broke my ankle.
Here is a pic from my first surgery in December of 2009:
And, here is a pic of the most recent surgery three weeks ago to fuse everything:
This is the third operation on this ankle. This time I had four incisions and 31 staples. Previous surgeries included a total of four incisions for a grand total of 8 points of entry into my foot and about 60+ staples.
I don't have much of a choice in recovery due to the cast, and I want to do everything in order for things to heal correctly so I can get back on the water soon.
So, again, thanks to all for your concern and kind remarks. This is just a bump in the road and we'll be back out there ASAP.
P.S.: It has given me time to tie up a bunch of flies...hehehehe!
