well, i did it again..... got myself screwed up..... went out hunting sunday night with adam(bruteforz05) and as i was walking back to the truck i slipped on a patch of ice at the truck and broke my leg/foot.... snapped the fibula and seperated my ankle joint and ripped the tendons off the inside of my ankle.....if adam hadnt of been with me i would of really be screwed... i was laying on the white line of the highway screaming at the top of my lungs... he picked me up and tossed me in the truck and took me to the e.r...... im definitely glad i wasnt by myself being it was 0 degrees outside that night... im off work for 3 months now and they are going in tomorrow afternoon and putting pins in my fibula and a screw completely through my ankle to join the joint back together and let it heal.... my short term dissability is only good for 3 months so i hope im back to work before 12 weeks... after that i go to 80% pay.... anyway... im not in a good mood right now and i hate being couped up in the house and not being able to get out......

Slipped huh, Well that sucks!

A quick recovery to ya. I feel your pain. I fractured my foot this past summer. Good drugs but gained a few from the lack of mobility.

monkey- At first when I heard him screamin in pain, i assumed he had fell and hit his head or had fell into a hole or even fell and rammed the gun through his stomach or something... i really had no idea, but the bad thing was, it was so dark outside, even when i got to him, I couldnt even see where he was until I grabbed ahold of him and could feel my feet slidin... Luckily I got enough ass behind me to get enough traction not to fall too... we would have both been screwed then...

Tell ya what, that ankle looked nasty. Ive had alot of the nurses and cmt's at the hospital tell me that it was one of the nastiest lookin ankles they had seen in a while as far as it swelling up and etc.

BTW- I called ahead to the ER and told them I was coming...(yeahthis is becoming a regular occurance when Shawn is involved) but we got there and they had a room waiting for him. They gave him a pain shot and nausea shot, got an x-ray, done an air cast and we were walking out the door in an hour and half. The guy in the next room had a dislocated shoulder and had been there 5 and 1/2 hours... haha They got us in and right out.

Good Luck,
Take care and don't push too hard for recovery and do yourself more harm. Ya gotta heal right the first time. 80% for a short time is better than long term misery.

well, im awake ..... i got a nice big plate and 6 screws in my foot.... when i came out of surgery the pain was unreal and they had to give me 3 morphene shots and 3 shots of diloted to get the pain under control... i was definitely feeling drowsy after that... now its just a matter of waiting 10weeks to walk again... just thought i would post i was still alive. im heading back to the couch fellas... talk to you later..

Thats one hell of an injury for a slip and fall. Hope the pain subsides to a more tolerable level. What you need is a sponge bath, Monkey can give you one like he gave Camo's V.
