one of these things is not like the other....


sorry if this grosses anyone out. that's the incision on my right knee where they cut me open to hammer the rod into my knee. you can't see the main incision too well because of the lighting, but that's where the bones came out. then i have 2 small incisions by my ankle and one near my knee where the screws are. the "owie" near my left ankle is also from the accident, i think that's where the clutch hit my leg. so yeah, i guess my future in leg modeling is shot ;) oh, and don't you just love how only my left toes are painted? not much point in painting the other one since i have to wear a tight fitting sock on it pretty much constantly.

in other news, i took my first shower standing up in 10 weeks today! and its hot here. my flowers are wilting.

I bet that water felt good to enjoy standing up. Water your plants too and they'll feel as good as you did.
It's so good to see how you are recovering. You are such a champ!!

Congrats on the shower! And you have some seriously wicked awesome war wounds to brag about in the future. I'd say chicks dig scars, but I know that's not really what your goal is. ;)

Heidi your leg is looking alot better than when I last saw it 5 weeks ago! One difference you didn't mention was your swollen right ankle. So excited for you to be standing more and more with weight on your right leg. XO
