I'm not a doctor but it seems it would've been better if surgeon had used shiny metal plates instead of screws for your foot. Because.....

Chrome joints make you faster!
At least, that's what I've heard.

I got my pre-op physical done yesterday and the screws should be coming out next Thursday (20 Dec)! I have been walking on it quite a bit and it has gotten a bit sore and angry so today I decided I would use my cart again for the longer areas I have to traverse....I am oh so close that I don't want to give anyone a reason to push the surgery off.

Take it easy, but don't be too worried about accidentally hurting yourself more. I had a Lisfranc 'fracture' a few months before and a few days after I got out of the chair and onto crutches, I fell down the stairs. The crutches were like a pole vault, so I couldn't even roll down the stairs, they launched me. Must have fallen 5-6 feet. I landed right on my feet (both were broken in half a dozen places.) It hurt, but when the doc checked it again a week later, he said I was recovering faster than he expected(!). I was afraid it would have knocked out/loose the pins, but apparently not so.

Blur,

When are you coming up to "BlastOff Adventures"?

We could use the support with the building and design of the See Saw and the rest of the obstacle course.

Oh man!! That sounds awesome! Can I bring my sadistic twin? He's great at building obstacle courses

At this point no extra challenges will be taken or for that matter chances. I ripped 20 stitches out of my leg when I was younger because I couldn't restrain myself and I have a huge scar from that so that's not going to happen this time.

T-4 Days to Screw removal

If all goes as planned, Blaster will be screw-less Thursday! He trotted around today in his red slipper on the good foot to begin the break in. EOD3MC has the pic to post later.
