The "conservative" surgeon (2nd opinion) convinced me to let him put pins in the two smallest on Tuesday. If he can align them without cutting he will. Then he sticks a hatpin kinda thing in each one and leaves them for 4 weeks. No news as to how long before I can walk. Maybe I will find out on Tuesday. It will be done under local, and will only take about an hour.
I told him I had to drive to Fort Stockton the following day and he said I shouldn't have any problem. We'll see, it was kinda cranky driving out here (Fort Stockton) today. Gotta love cruise control.
I asked my boss if I could have some time off ... He just looked at me in the mirror and said ... NO :whiner:

Here you go Tony....a little memory for you. This was about 2 minutes before you took a nose dive out of the wheel chair and saved yourself with your......broken toes!!!

I sure hope you're feeling better soon!!

No_Mo is healing up well. He is using the helmet as a symapthy magnet for the chicks though, and the high school football boys are gonna break other bones if he doesn't stop. Worked so well his sister is taking it to school today. I think I'll bring it to work tomorrow and see if any magic is left :)

ok, this is really weak and lame compared to a "real" injury, but I have a really bad cold. It's no surprise what with the near lack of sleep for a week. No regrets. It does make my week back to work a bit tougher, blowing by doze ebery tirdy secods!

Just got back from doctors and i get to keep the cast. No Surgery!!! Atleast for now everything is still in place and starting to mend. I complained about the cast hurting alot and he said if the bones set enough by next wednesday he'll put me in a walking cast. Its soft and has adjustable straps so i can remove it or adjust the tightness as needed. I still wont be able to put weight on the foot for atleast another 4 weeks. I'm happy! :yeehaw:

Good news tj! :aj: You'll be out and about before you know it!
The nice part about the soft cast. . . taking it off for a shower or bath.
