Score one for the icy front walk...

by - Monday, January 13, 2014

Warning! Graphic pictures ahead!

All I wanted was to go to Shoppers Drug Mart and buy some water. 

I ended up taking an ambulance ride and having surgery to repair a broken leg and dislocated ankle. Just so you know... my feet "should" be facing the same direction. 
A picture taken by my wonderful EMT...
Yeah... let's just say my front walk was a bit icy, and I have a titanium plate and eight screws in my ankle to prove it. 

I'm home now. Off work for two weeks, then to the cast clinic to get my stitches/staples out and then four more weeks of either a hard cast or walking boot. 

Followed by six weeks of physio. 

My view for the next two weeks. 
I leave for Iceland in 90 days. Let's just hope I'm a quick healer. 

If anyone needs me I'll be mainlining milk and eating calcium pills by the vat. 

And resigning up for a Netflix account.
