Surgery Today



Today I'm going in to have my third and final surgery of the year for the broken ankle thing. This one's to have the plate and screws removed. That'll put me back in the boot for about a week. And off running for a couple of weeks, then I'll slowly get back into it.

The boot's okay to walk in after a cast. Not so great after surgery. No matter how much I pump it up to stay firm, the thing rubs against the incision. At least that's what happened in June when I had the big screw out (pictured) --and that incision was a lot shorter than this one will be. So I'll probably be parked in the house for awhile.

Prepared for that, I ran around yesterday trying to do everything I needed to do. Plus get my page count done for the day. Was a stressful day. But onward and upward. I am happy to say I'm right on target with my page count. I'll miss today, being woozy this afternoon from the anesthesia. But I'll be back at it tomorrow, and I'll use Saturday to make up the pages I missed today. By then I'll be 1/3 through this current manuscript, due Dec. 15.

So call me Ol' Gimp again. Tune in tomorrow. If I'm with it enough, I'll post a picture of the hardware. What did you say? Of course I'm asking for it! Paid for it, didn't I?

Brandilyn,
We'll be praying for you. This one shouldn't be nearly so bad as the original. You'll hardly have time to get to liking the Vicodin afterward.

K: Man, are you disciplined! No wonder you're such a successful writer. How I admire you. "Lord, let me be like B."

God bless you, B., and keep you in His tender, loving care and bring you complete healing. Amen.

Take care and get well fast, Brandilyn.
