Kwisn down but not out.

I thought that when I was hobbling around on crutches it would be due to a moto dirt dart style crash. But no, I get ran over by a big box truck while at work. Totally my fault (like usual) with lack of situational awareness resulting in stepping under wheel going by. Yea, hard to believe.
The good news is that multiple fractures in left foot did not require emergency surgery, so I got that going for me. I'll find out Monday if I'm in the surgery free zone.
If anyone wants to find out what kind of physical condition they're in just hobble around on one foot for a while with a couple of pieces of aluminum stuck in your armpits.
Somebody call me a waambulance. At least it's not June.
My company has called me twice making sure I'm OK and asking if there is anything they can do. It really is nice to work with such a fine group of people.
If I can ever get my car back from work I'll get my camera and take some pics, pretty colors of little sausages sticking out of a fat sausage.

That sucks, I broke my foot last June and had to have surgery. Try to get a knee roller if you can, it makes all the difference in the world in being able to get around, plus all the little kids are real impressed. I had crutches before my surgery and took a digger and fucked my foot up even worse, vicodin plus getting cocky on crutches is not a good combo.
Heal fast!!

Work is dangerous. Stick to motorcycles.

Sorry to hear that you are down and out Keith. I'm sure that me and Gums can get together and get your vehicle back to the Rock. I am free all weekend, just PM me and we'll make it happen. Get well "shifts with broken toe"!
