One week since I did the dirty dab. Its getting better. The swelling and pain have diminished a lot over the course of the week. Each day is a little different. What a major blow to the body...it is really intense pain to brake a leg. Now at a week, I'm getting more movement in my toes, can bend and straighten the leg better, can do leg lifts and hop around on crutches longer. Its the little progress that I'm looking for.
For now I just hang out and look at the ceiling, the wall, the windows. Its actually quite peaceful and nice.
Big Thanks go out to the Mt. Snow Medics who hauled me off the hill. They were all really strong and in good shape. Even the guy that rode in the back of the pick-up truck who was asking me tons of questions to make sure I didn't have a head injury. They had a good clinic right on site and could get me assessed and comfortable to the hospital.
The Southwestern Vermont Hospital was not a terrible experience. My orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Matt Norfizer, was a good guy. He insisted on doing my surgery right away even though his staff would of rather gone home for the evening. They were googling me to see who they were operating on. I don't know if that help or hurt my cause. Time will tell, I guess.
Mt. Snow Resort was classy enough to call me monday and send flowers as well. Thanks everyone for the emails and phone calls. Its cool to know the people that care( and that don't) The good people of the Burg have been stopping in for mini visits and delivering sweets. Sugar isn't good for broken bones...sardines and kale are apparently.
I know Tim cares. Tim has a mustache. He has been helping me out so much, in addition to working at a busy SBC. Amara and Jason have been so kind, too. I'm hoping to make it to their wedding on 8/8/08. That would be a three week milestone.
