I emailed some photos to my doc in utah of the progress, I got a concerned phone call that it looked as if the steri strips had snapped and i had a open wound that was not healing correctly, I went to the local orthopedic surgeon here. He fixed me up nicely. More pics of the progess.





























Insurance company claims that the left foot pedal may not fly with the Idaho DMV, I'm gping to check on what it takes to drive without any problems from the state.


I am now using padded sponge type deals with a dressing over the wound to let it drain properly and upped my dose of antibiotics to help avoid infection. There is still pain from the parts of my leg I can feel, but it is for sure better than it was a week ago.

I wont post them but this is what happens when your foot is not ventilated properly and sweat eats away the skin. warning nasty. view at your own risk

those foot pictures are pretty gross. It sucks that they had to add one more thing that you have to take care of.

Looks like the incisions are healing up nicely. Keep your spirits up!
