On may 20th I was opening my summer cottage and was knocked off a ladder from about 18 feet up. Luckily I landed on my feet and did no damage to my back or head, unlucky for me I shattered my Calcaneus(heal) into 6 pieces. After 2.5 weeks the swelling was down enough for the Dr to operate and repair my bone. Another 10 weeks after surgery of non weight bearing. Then 3 weeks to ween myself off crutches and for the swelling to be low enough to fit my biking shoes on. Unfortunately I do not have enough strength in my leg to mountain bike yet so it was the road bike that I took out but it was still a blast to be back on the bike and I have to get in some miles so I can rebuild my leg and mountain bike soon. Here are a couple pics of my summer...
cat scan may 20th
7 screws and a metal plate in my foot and lots of pain meds, and the best GF anyone could dream of, she did not leave my side for over 2 weeks after surgery.
