Interesting week!

What began as  an office visit for ankle pain went on to an MRI and to the discovery that I had some rather major damage to two tendons in my ankle...  ( the result of many years of good mountain hiking! ) Yesterday was my day for surgery,  My surgeon is amazing! He discovered that one tendon was badly damaged and the other one significantly torn - but he sewed them together into one strong tendon.  There were 8 young surgeons who were using me as a learning opportunity - which I thought was cool - So this is what my leg looks like now...


For the next several weeks this is my new set of wheels... Pretty great and way better than crutches!!
