Default Boating over-Surgery for Mr. P

We got the results from the CAT scan, from Ian's water skiing fall on Sunday. The doc says a majority of all the ligamonts across the top of his
left foot is torn, along with a few fractures. He wants to schedule him for surgery next week. He even said it is one of the worst he's seen, and he is a foot and ankel ortopedic doc

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

I feel for you guys. See my topic about A Man His Boat and A Wedding Ring. Doc told me 6-8 weeks without any weight on my foot after heel surgery. Its been a week already. Just be prepared to be in bed for a few days after surgery. Remember a positive attitude is the best medicine.

Good luck we are in the same boat!!!!

Ron

Better than going to Dr and learning you have terminal cancer.

This summer here sucks anyway. Get well Ian. At least your engines are running good!!

Dave your right, things could always be worse, Rog I am trying to do stuff for him, but he hates it, keeps on saying I'll get it, I'll do it. Today on crutches he is on his way to the quarter car wash. His dually has been in one place for so long, it is covered in acorns, & it is driving him nuts
I did read the thread about the ring, just awful I think that sounds worse.

Like the song says .............We will survive
