blue skies and broken bones

seneca sleeve

Ah, 2010. I had such high hopes for you. How are you looking so far? I have been sick twice. 2X! More than i am normally sick in 2 years. Is this in celebration of double digits? Not nice.

Then, on SOP’s birthday, on a simple ski in the trees, but on a fairly flat spot with layers of differently texture snow, i heard/felt a ‘pop’ mid-turn. Crap. We got patrol, and it was a fantastic ride out to say the least! Since we were back a ways, they got a snow machine for part of the trek – until the snow machine got stuck and the patroller and i buried. They all did a great job, but the clinic confirmed what I was pretty sure of already – my fibula was broken. Drats.

Last friday i had a follow-up appointment with the orthopaedist. The fracture has shifted and that means surgery. Double Drats.

The good news, however, is that I am now on my way to robot status! I’m getting metal in my leg!

    Ooh, and we can all use you as a distraction at airports when we’re trying to smuggle something!
    I’m not a skier, so I don’t understand how this could happen. I mean, the bone was just doing its job…
    Let us talk about the sweater, instead. How is that cable made? In the normal way?

    Yikes! The whole thing is pretty terrifying to me – I hope you’re on the mend, and I agree – I want more details about the sweater.
