I'm going to post an update to Joe's August post regarding breaking his ankle. Our week started out at the hospital 8 AM Monday for the second surgery on Joe's foot. This surgery took out all his hardware and unfortunately, also found some tears in the tendon by his ankle, right where he'd been having pain and swelling. This is good because everything is out of the ankle and the Dr. sewed up the tendon tears, everything can heal now. This is challenging for Joe because he was ready to be done and fixed.
Here is the 4 screws and the plate, all washed up and out of his ankle.
For those that like the yucky pictures, there is a scar just like this on the other side of his foot. :) I think he was just worried the scar wouldn't be impressive enough only being cut once.
Thanks to our friends for the wonderful support, help and good wishes.
