In Honor of Halloween

In honor of Halloween, and all things spooky, I thought I'd share this picture.  It's an X-Ray of a repaired Triplane Ankle Fracture.  That's right, this is what the inside of my son's ankle now looks like.  (Although this isn't his ankle … we won't see his post-surgery X-rays for a couple weeks.)  The screws connect the three broken bones.  They will most likely stay in his ankle for life unless the metal causes problems and needs to be removed at a later date.

The poor kid was not out socializing on Halloween.  Instead he was home recovering on Vicodin.  It's no wonder, don't ya think?

    I’m sure somebody’s already told him that he can now consider himself bionic?? (Like your nipples only better)
    If he’s on enough vicodan, he MIGHT find that worth a smile?
    I hope he’s feeling better soon. You too!

    Aww, yay, we’re ankle twins! Erm…guess that’s not really a “yay” though, is it? Hope he heals well and as quick as possible.

    Poor dude! Glad he’s got the good stuff to cope with the pain. What they give a worried a mama for relaxing, though?
