I’m a few days into my recovery now and bored already!  Surgery on Friday went well, my toenail was removed, the cut was cleaned out all the way down to the fracture and the nail bed was repaired.  While the surgeon was operating several cultures were taken, I received a message from him yesterday that one of the cultures was positive for a staph bacteria.  If that bacteria had gotten into the fracture it’s likely I would have eventually been down to 9 toes.  What a freak!  That is the reason why surgery was the best option! 

For now I’m banished to the couch which is a tough thing for me.  Recovery will be short, hopefully lasting only 2-3 weeks before I can be back training at full gas. 

Thanks for checking in.
