Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center Friendships

Here we are at the end of August -- seven months after hitting a tree with a snowboard -- and this is our first picture with Dr. Matthew Buchanan.

Dr. Buchanan is an excellent surgeon and, more importantly, consistently professional and personable. Brooke and I both highly respect him and everyone on staff at the Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center. We just wish we could stop hanging out at hospital operating rooms and the clinic.

We didn't see Josie in the office today, so we didn't get a chance to grab her for some forced blog photography.

Dr. Buchanan's nurse, Janelle, has been awesome handling all of our anxious calls and questions. Thanks for all of the help for the last six months and thanks in advance for all of our future calls and questions.

Our other doctor, the lovely and always smiling Dr. Evetta Borden, refused to get her picture taken today because, as she put it, she was having a bad hair day. Ridiculous! Apparently, she's simply postponing it until next week.

I'm not leaving the office next week until we get a picture together.

Meet Ashley (on the left) and Amy (on the right). We've been hanging out since February. Both of these lovely ladies are highly skilled at putting up with my crap while dressing my ankle wounds and taking x-rays.

We just recently gave our new friends at the clinic the address to the blog. To my surprise, they've been reading it. So, Amy, Ashley -- if you guys are reading this stupid post, we hope your office inventory party kicked as much butt as it sounded like it would.

If you got tired of counting Casttoos, just remember Casttoos are totally awesome.

What, is his cast on fire? No way!

In all our pictures I'm sporting my Marshall Brewing Company t-shirt. They're one of a few Tulsa-based brewing companies. The owner and our friend, Eric, was with us on the ski trip when I had the accident.

Eric was a top runner for most epic mustache on the trip.
