shortened 2 of his toes
fused the front of the bones in his foot
In the back of his leg- lengthened the heel cord.
The Dr came out and showed us the xrays of what they did- He has at least 15 screws in his foot and leg!
He's in a cast up to his knee and the Dr says the recovery is 2-3 months. Dad isn't one to sit for long so hopefully he'll be in the 2 month range.
While we were waiting for him to go into surgery, Mari said- you should take a picture of his toes and blog it- so her wish is my command:
Take note of how crooked his toe is- this is frightening to me, because I have a "hammer toe" already. So I'm hoping this next picture isn't in my future.
I'm glad it's done and now the healing can begin. Hopefully in the coming months he will be able to walk without pain.
