Haven't posted since... November 2009. Nice!





Enjoying the road trip to Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, North Battleford (pictured), Edmonton, Drumheller and Calgary...



I fell coming off the train and broke my leg (fibula)on Friday, June 11th, 2010. I was taken by ambulance to the University of Alberta Hospital and had surgery on Saturday, June 12th. I had a plate and screws put into my bone



Didn't make it to West Edmonton Mall, Drumheller, or Calgary. Instead this is me, 24 hours post-op, in our hotel.



Beej had to drive the 13 hours home. We got out periodically to prevent blood clots. :P


Half-cast #2.


Real cast #1. One week.


Real cast #2. Three weeks.



Artist's (my) rendition of my leg after cast #2 came off. It was not pretty. Real photos available upon request. ;)



How I feel. Well it is getting better. :P I have been working from home since July 5th and go back into the office on August 19th.

What an experience!

I haven't heard from you in forever!

That's because you are not on Facebook. :P

I love your artist renditions. Did you do them yourself? Made my LJ day, they did! And welcome back to LJ land :)

The one of my leg is all me.
The second one is Scuzzlebutt from SouthPark, except my leg isn't Patrick Duffy, it is Brett Favre.

I love how your foot is STRAIGHT up in the first cast picture. It's like you're a Rockette!!

But seriously, glad you're feeling better and almost back to normal life. At least you'll always be able to say "remember that time we were on vacation and.."
