Just a few hours away. So psyched for the next pitch.

Ron, no that is not me. If nothing else the canopy colors prove it. That is an Aussie guy on Tombstone that happened a few days prior. I heard he only endured three dislocated toes. Lucky guy.

Looks like similar situations, though. My brake lines were set too short opening in a collapsed stall. Like I said on my first post, I take full responsibility and should have jumped something more overhanging and forgiving after the repair.

I'm putting on my game face, strapping on my armor (all mental of course) and preparing to march out on the front line.

Ammon, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With an attitude like yours you'll kick ass in the next challenges too. And inspire the rest of us along the way. Hope you heal up soon and strong as ever. THere's no doubt you will.

BASE104, can you post the link to the video you mention. The only video of the actual flight that I could find was the one from the Kiwi news.

The video is indeed viral. I met a paramedic on my flight last night that asked me if I had seen it. This was after he was talking to me about climbing. He was really impressed with your composure Ammon. This guy is a medic in Baltimore city, and has seen a ton of crazy stuff.

Good luck on today's surgeries.

Tomorrow I go into battle at noon where construction, carving, drilling and screwing will take place for six hours. They will also remove the external fixator and plug the flap patch, aaiighh!

Yo, my brother, if they do all that in one go those doctors deserve medals. the plastic muscle graft work usually takes much longer if they have to harvest the tissue from your upper leg (like they did on me). Hope they can figure out something easier for you. But either way you're well on your way and that's a great thing.

Whatever you do, don't skimp on the stool softener. Getting through surgery without a lot of that is not for the faint of heart! Get well soon.

Heal up quickly Ammon! Consider the activity that caused the injury....0 sum game.
