11 Jan Walking the Walk
A big milestone around here. One year ago I was just retuning from two weeks in the hospital following a 15-hour surgery to remove my left femur, replace it with titanium, relocate my fibula from my calf to my thigh, and cut out a third of my quad muscle. After fifteen months on crutches, two months on a single crutch, and a few months with a cane, I occasionally walk without any aid these days. I am thinking of celebrating by slipping on the ice outside my door!
