Black ice = "exploded" fibula

    Dropping off a vehicle for state inspection, caught a patch and beat the hell out of my ankle. The surgeon who did the emergency surgery three hours later said it was the worst break he has seen in 20 years.

    I might be able to play basketball again, but golf should not be a problem.

    T-minus six to eight weeks until I will be able to walk again. Until then, it's the bed.

    This sucks, but it could have been so much worse. What bothers me the most is that I cannot get on the floor with my daughter to play for a little while.

    Just a side note, for those of you thinking of moving into another profession, I will not miss one dollar of pay since I have built up so much sick leave. The school system is not so bad.

    I also have the best wife in the world.

    Yikes. We don't even have ice up in Connecticut right now.

    Heal up, 93D. Glad it wasn't worse.

    It was a sunny day, too. The ice was in the shade.

    Hey, it really makes me appreciate the time I spend with Lil 93 and the great woman I married.

    Yes, it passed!

    I was laying in water and ice and told my wife to be sure the damn key got dropped off. Something was getting accomplished.

    Is your ankle OK?

    Anyway, this sucks. I guess you will become an expert on college basketball, because it will be about the only thing for the next 6 to 8 weeks.

    Get better.

    I see the doc again a week from tomorrow, but we chatted the day after he cut me up. He said the surgury seemed successful and that once the cast is off, I should be walking right away.

    Thank God he was able to operate that afternoon. He almost did not have a rod long enough to do the surgery. I think I busted up about eight inches of that bone.

    Do you have any extra pills? For my friend.
