Well, I went to my follow-up appointment with the Orthopedist yesterday and he told me I need surgery. So, I have surgery scheduled for tommorow morning. A pin to hold my fibula in place at the ankle and a plate to hold the fracture which is higher up on the fibula. And I had gone in to the appointment thinking I could get by with a walking air boot and return to work today. 4 weeks out, mandatory. And a second surgery to remove the pin. (and to think I walked into the ER on that ankle, no wonder I felt like vomiting at the thought of it while sitting in my car in the parking lot)
On the up-side, I will be getting some good drugs
My father said, I need to pack my bags and the minute I am able to drive bring myself up to his house so they can take care of me. I'm sorely tempted. I haven't taken a vacation in close to eight years. He's happy I'm having surgery. He broke his leg in five places in a motorcycle accident opted out of surgery and said he's been paying for it ever since. I guess that's what happens when your eight wing and your Ego gets in the way.
