Donna,
I hope Ian gets well soon and that it doesn't affect your skiing season, too!

You are right about that, we have a trip planned to Vail the first week in Feb, his boots hurt him before, who knows how it will feel now
How are you enjoying that new boat of yours

Love the boat....thanks. But probably looking to downsize now that we have a house on the water. Who knows what will be next!

I hope six months is enough time for Ian to heal. I'll keep my fingers crossed! Tell him not to rush it.

I had foot surgery last year...I had a very good orthopedic (sports medicine specialist) but it was a rough surgery. I went through 6 months of healing (per family Dr. recommendation )to find out I would need surgery anyway . Then it was another 3 months after surgery before all the casts and braces were gone.

Make sure you do ANY physical therapy the recommend.

Good luck

I guess we had our last ride on the BT for the season. He will not even be able to put any weight on the foot for 6 weeks. Needless to say we are feeling pretty down. Many have suffered worse things, and we will survive so we can't be to depressed.

At the moment we have plans to be in Key West for the races so if anyone will be there with their boat an offer of a ride just might cheer him up

Sorry to hear about Ian... Look on the bright side your saving tons of money on fuel and you can lower your insurance costs!

Hope he feels better soon... If it will make him feel better I will take the boat out and video me Jumping freighter wakes in Lake St Clair with it


Speedy Recovery

Brad and Jennifer

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. Surgery is on Friday then a few more weeks to goof off before going back to work. Donna's been great but it is frustrating not being able to do anything myself. Worst thing is I can't get on the computer all day because Donna uses it for work. Hope everyone has fun these last weeks of the summer. Ian

That's a terrible way to go out for the season. Best wishes in a speedy recovery.

I'm sorry to hear that his injury is so extensive.

We wish you the best possible outcome, and hope that he'll be ready to go to Vail. Good luck!
