Seriously, I'm taking J to the hospital (behind my house, coincidentally) to let the doc have one last look at it and to set up the appointment to get'er whacked off. I offered to do it for cheap but he refused. At least he'll be close by when he goes under the knife. Maybe I can sneak some MX videos over to him whilst he's convalescing.
Gotta love that pic, and just think I can see it close up any time I wanna!! Lou and I are heading to the orthopedic doc today but I am hoping he stays with the conservative attitude he has displayed up to this point..now almost 4weeks to the day of the crash. The doc has discussed taking me under the knife to remove the black areas(dead tissue) and see if any good tissue still remains underneath. The issue of total removal has been covered also but that would happen if infection were to set in...so far it hasn't because I have been taking almost straight peneciline(spelling?). We shall see..the bones are healing great it is just the skin that is the biggest worry. Either way I look forward to being back on the bike and riding w/my buds. Take care to all and enjoy the gross photos!!;)
Hopefully you're able to fully recover. Damn that's a gross picture. The toe not the kick a** jump. That looks like a fun track. I'm originally from Missouri. A little town near Columbia called Glasgow. What a great place to ride. Not as many places like that out here in California.
Anyway just wanted to say hello to a fellow Missourian and send a get well soon.
Thanks to all...I know its gross, my wife is very squemish and cannot even look at it, all the while my 2yr old daughter wants to give it a healing kiss every time I change the bandages! Too funny.
Hey Aust, regarding the steel plate..I emailed Alpinestars boots regarding building an offroader specific boot that was lined on the top side w/a steel plate to remove some of the danger of a pinch situation so many of us encounter in the woods/rocks/desert. Something like a construction boot steel toe, then just bring the steel up to the pivot point covering the top of the foot. Just a thought and I have not received a response from them yet. I know w/o my boots I would have lost my whole foot, so I am thankful for the protection they provided!! BTW..go ahead Okie..have a look!! :eek:
