Lying outside after a hectic physio session and staples being removed I was finally put into the light as to the seriousness of my accident.
The ortho doc was happy with the wound and the way its healing. I will be seeing him in 3 weeks for a check up.
The physio had a first look at the cut without any plasters and I watched his face as I took my moonboot off.
He need not have said anything but he did. He said to me that a few cm's up or down and would have lost all use of my foot. I would have servered all the nerves and muscles that makes the foot function.
After that bombshell dropped he began his session on the leg.
It was a hard but good one. He was happy with the progress of the movement and was pretty blunt with me saying that he has never seen an injury like mine and that its gonna be a long hard slog.
I know this and I'm ready for the pain. Bring it on.
I will be dancing with my baby in december well if only a slow dance.
That's my first goal. Next goal will be close to walking on the foot by March 2009.
God willing I'm ready for this journey NO matter what is thrown at me.
