In February 2010, I snowboarded into a tree. After five reconstructive surgeries to salvage my ankle, I decided to get a below-knee amputation. Will I ride again? Absolutely.
This has nothing to do with hiccups, not sure what to do for those...but found this link, thought you might like to read it. Miss you guys. Love you. Heal fast!!! www.ilizarov.org.uk/anim.htm
Loved this illustrated explanation! Made the complex contraption easier for me to understand. I think this may be very similar to a surgery I saw on TV performed on "little people" (we used to call them dwarfs) who want to to grow just a few more inches taller. I love having a daughter-n-law who is a teacher and another one who is a nurse !
