NOT for the faint in heart: my November recovery

These good looking photos were taken after my cast was removed.  Under that swollen stitched up skin is a large metal plate and 12 huge screws.  And let me tell you, it hurt worse than it looked.  The small circular areas of stitches were where the fixator was screwed into the bones in my leg and foot.  I believe it was in six places.  Sorry to be so gruesome but I'm kind of proud of my battle scars.  Even if the battle was just me and one large stair.  You may think the stair one but that stair will pay.  You'll see.  :)
