Wow, Anita. That looks way more futuristic than mine. Did you have a spiral fracture? Yup, borgish for sure Captain Kirk. Let's hang out next time I'm in Bosie, if you're around. Good to see you getting around better than last time I saw you, Largo.

Yup, this is my third fixator. They are loads of fun! Haha

External fixator!

mine's a taylor spatial frame. it is pretty high tech, eh?
we lengthened my tibia and corrected an ankle misalignment... nothing gnarly like you, but still stuck with an ex fix all summer.

hope you heal up quickly.
is it weight bearing?

Hang in there, Ammon. You gotta admit that you are getting some gray hair in yer beard, so you might start thinking of life as a calendar like us old washed up farts do.

Take care of yourself so that you can keep living the life. That is the most important thing. To me, anyway. Keep on collecting those experiences. It damn near killed me when I had to give it up.

No way, it's still super sloppy in there. I probably won't be cleared for weight bearing until around mid November, I'm guessing.

Here's a an xray from the last surgery right before they took the rogue screws out:

What a pain that the hardware got infected, but that happens sometimes even under the best of circumstances.

Did you have good insurance prior to the accident? If so, did it cover your costs well or leave you in the lurch? Don't answer if the question is too personal, I'm just curious if your coverage did what it was suppose to and insure your health, or not.

Peace and happy healing!

That was a really good video! it does state the obvious that you guys need to come up with better riggs or better protocol or something to lower the rate of atrition.......

Ammon-
we still have to compare notes.

6 months out I had a enterobacter infection and 6-8 weeks later I had to get my hardware removed. I did not bend the damn thing! Of course,I was working with broke legs on both sides not just one.

ask jeremy a. how my leg does next time you see him.

Yikes, Anita! I've never seen a rig CLOSE to that one!

All the best to both of you.

Got the biopsy results in yesterday, kinda bitter sweet news but mostly good... I think.

I had two different infections going on in my bone. The propionibacterium acnes infection and a staph infection, both probably caused from my bone punching through my skin, where they both naturally live. The p. acnes is a nasty bone eating vermin that's hard to get rid of but apparently jumped ship. So, a welcoming negative on those little parasites and to Davey Jones' locker they go.

One out of the three cultures came back positive for the staph infection. So, that's good news it's not completely infested. I'll most likely go back on the hard stuff, injecting antibiotics but will know more once I see the infectious disease folks next Monday. Mostly good news but not out of the thick of it, just yet.

Thanks to all my friends and family who have shown concern and support, you rock and I love you all.
