Braking Mike

(Mike with new walking boot and t-shirt he got at Legoland "The force is strong with this one".)

1 week after getting home from our vacation Mike broke his leg (right above his ankle). He likes the story that his motorcycle decided to ride him. He was out riding in the gravel and decided to spin a cookie to turn to go the other direction. The bike caught some traction and the front wheel came off the ground causing him and the bike to fall to the right. Resulting in fracturing his leg. He managed to ride it home then we took him to the urgent care for x-rays. Where they set him up with this awesome walking boot. The next day we went to see the Orthopedic Surgeon for more x-rays and to set up surgery the following day to have two screws put in his leg to hold the broken piece in place. His surgery went well and he is back home healing. We got him a pair of crutches but he ends up hopping on one foot most of the time around the house. The doctor said he thought Mike would be back walking on it in two weeks. Until then we are hangin at home.

Mike at the Idaho Surgery Center ready for them to put the screw in.
