I'm doing great thanks for asking. About ten days ago I had the surgical splint removed along with the approximate 65 staples. Have a hard cast now and an all terrain knee scooter which has totally improved my mobility around the house and yard. No pain but I feel like a house arrest inmate with an ankle bracelet. Going back on the 19th for another X-ray and maybe a new cast, maybe a walking boot.


And keeping up with my tradition I couldn't turn down a purple cast.

You'll have to put that up on some V blocks and check the run out but it looks pretty straight from here.   Keep the good spirits man you're doing great.

Yup, the runout shouldn't exceed .003 inches.

Keep moving forward Todd.

Dang, dude. You have my sympathies. Those staples and incisions will leave some killer railroad track scars. Best wishes.

Some people want to "be like Mike". Others want to be like Alex (Smith).

Tib - Fib fracture. Taking an EMT course, which is part of the reason I haven't been on the site, much. We learned a lot about that stuff. I guess it's pretty common for both bones to break together, if one is going to go.

I wish you the best on your recovery.

Great news Todd. Glad to hear you can get back out there and fulfill your duties as president of the "pull my arms in excessively at 5 ball for no apparent reason" club.

That actually carries some bitter sweet memories for you, well maybe just bitter, as I went back and reread this thread to be reminded that it was ball 5 that ate your lunch.

Let's be careful out there.

As some of you may recall, I got a new to me ski for this year. It has a leather lace up boot, which I have never had before. Thinking of Todd and Val Karras, I was a little nervous about it not coming off and doing something similar to my ankle. I was pleased to learn after a couple OTFs that this ski will pop off as needed, so I am feeling a little better about it.

Go get it Todd.

Todd, that is great news, the whole rehab experience can be so long and frustrating. Has to feel good to get the "all-clear"!

I think about your injury, and others, not that I'm worried and skiing differently, just comes to mind at times when I do an almost OTF. Of course always happens when I'm tired so trying to a bit more solid physically from start to finish of the run.
