I broke my right ankle (a bimalleolar fracture with diplacement) while mountain biking on Tuesday this past week. My bike slid out while taking a sandy curve too fast in a canyon. My foot was so disfigured, it almost made my nauseous. My friend Jeff was with me fortunately, so he went down to call 911, and I layed around until I decided to finish riding down the hill with one leg. I almost made it to the bottom when the fire department arrived. It’s a bad fracture, so sugery is required to put a plate on my fibula and a couple pins in my tibia.
My parents told me about this last week, but I was waiting for Drew to blog it before I mentioned it here so I could give the full story. This comes at a really bad time for him as he’s finishing up med school, doing interviews, and rotations. Please keep him in your prayers.
