I think she's wanted for murder after the last one she had!

UPDATE on Christie:

Christie can't get to a computer right now so I told her I would update you all again. Doctor found NO SOFT TISSUE DAMAGE (good news)!!! Doctor inserted one desolving screw on the top inside of the tibia, and two permanent screws on the sides. It sounds like the doctor did exactly as he predicted he would (see Christie's comments above). Christie can elaborate when she feels better.

Glad surgery went well Christie!!! Here's to a speedy yet thorough recovery!

Thanks for all the encouragement everyone! I have been very much out of it for the last few days, but I am hoping I got over the worst of it last night.

One of my employees came over to my friend's house today to setup a wireless network for me so I could sit here in bed and get connected.

Doctor Octagon stopped by for a quick visit today, but he forgot his camera. Otherwise, we would have opened the bandage and posted a pic of the carnage.

My surgeon said he took lots of pics for me and I am hoping to get them on Wed. when I go for my post opt appt. Maybe I will get them to someone to scan it so we can post some of of the internal pics.

Thanks again everyone for the encouraging and for all the calls and visits. I hope to see you all out on the water soon!

Here's a current pic. It isn't the great quality because it was taken with a cell phone, but you get the idea of what state I'm in. Notice the "barf bucket" in the foreground

I'll get pics of the surgery damage as soon as I get my camera over here and open the bandages!

So it all went well, great news! Permanent screws, say goodbye to getting through the airport without getting frisked.
Hope you feel better soon!

Was that barf bucket for you or for us after those pics? Thanks for sharing!
I hope your over the "hump", now each day will get better and better. The body heals so fast, its pretty amazing when you look at the big picture!

Get better soon!!

Kristian - I love your personal quote...made me laugh!!

Stef - Thanks for coming to visit and making me lunch today.

Patty - I agree. It does look good for being less than a week after surgery, but as you see above, it is bad enough to ruin some appetites :-)

At least you'll heal much quicker with a bone break than a Ligament tear......just trying to put things in perspective.
On a brighter note, those pics aren't as bad as the ones I saw today after a young lady had her entire arm de-gloved by a bear attack .

hang in there.......you'll be good as new before you know it

like I said to the last guy who broke his leg wakeskating..... "Rub some dirt on it and get back in there!" :-)
