John, Ouch sympathies go to you reluctantly as it seems unbelievable what happened. Did the spotters fan out as usual? Pathetic! Nevertheless, this convalescence period will be a good time to practice your knots.
What is with all the demands for new copy but no mention of bucks? Don't waste your time writing. Your fans are never satisfied. And what would you write, "Diary of a mad Unicyclist?" "Will loan you a metolius hangboard that could mount over your bed. ooops you already have one! December=training! Speaking of training, I'd like to invite all the staff nurses to room Largo for a pajama party. Turn up the music and Heal Well, Friend! - Bruce

Hey Largo I know I don't need to tell you but PT is everything when it comes to recovery. It took me many years to get my ankle strong again after a triple-break back in the mid-2000s. I did not rigorously follow my PT and I paid for it... in time shares.

Recover well.

Oh, this is a tib-fib break? I did that when I was a kid jumping off a fence. They even gave me a walking cast without crutches. I'll bet you didn't scream out like a nancy when you put weight on it and you buckled to the ground like I did! I think I was 11.

Cosmic, that first How To Climb cover was the best. It still makes me laugh until my stomach hurts, and lately I've been needing some of that!

Heal up of course and keep from being bored during that time!

What's unique to this thread, unlike a million other accident threads of ST, is that we have no real information on what happened so we can't go on saying what should have happened in hindsight, and blame various acts or people for the incident, only to be found wrong when the actual details some out.

Very sly, having this all so secret. I mean gyms are supposed to be idiot proof, but since we're confident Largo is not an Idiot, apparently the safety measure weren't designed to protect him

I actually like it that way ;). The upshot is he got hurt. I don't really care about the accident report unless it's some kind of novel way to go about hurting yourself. I know we always need to know to protect others, yadda yadda yadda, but sometimes that info is just used to decide whether or not we should feel sorry and learn, or call somebody a gumbie.

I'm loopy but one thing is clear - there's a lot of love in the climbingg world, and I must be getting the bulk of it over the last few days. I am embarrassed to have raised others on this site only to have them wish me good cheer. Thanks to all, from the bottom of my heart. You are my heros.

Hey Largo,

When I broke my ankle up at Suicide in 1985, I'm sure glad you were there to help me out. If there's anything I can do to reciprocate, please let me know. At least that explains why I didn't see you out at Josh this weekend... Hope you heal up fast.

reminds me of this:

Even if the fight is still "on" with that leg, people are incredibly resilient and John has many decades of experience with living.

...uh... with all due respect and more. ;-)

Dear John,

Dare I say that we all pine for you, no we long for you. We need to hear the your dear sweet voice. You are our master of the stone, our Sage, our guide to all the thrilling adventures of a misspent youth.

Hearing of your mighty fall, we can only say NO, say it ain't so. Not our pillar of stone, you who are one of the gods, the leader cannot fall, no never.

We mere mortals may fall, but not our dear John, we are so sad to know that you to may be only flesh and blood and not made of mighty granite.

We long to know that you will soon rise again, you are our master of stone, the keeper of our words, the hero of our youth, long may you reign.

So dear John we do long to hear from you.
