It hurts

It hurts to see and hear everybody leaving for CCR. But then I know you are all going to send and post pics for me so that I can be there even when I am not there.

What? Why I am not coming? I had to get some toes repaired from my run-in with that pesky 18-wheeler 3 years ago. They were planning to correct two of my toes, then as they got into my foot and had it open they decided to fix and repair the third as well. At least now I know why I was hurting all the time. Even after 3 years, one of my toes was still broken. And now it feels as if I kicked a block of concrete without shoes. The docs are really good, but still had to break three toes again.

Hi Andy,

Brother, I can certainly imagine how you must feel. I had three surgeries on both feet at the same time. Doctor said to do both feet at the same time because I probably would not come back for the second. He was right!

Hope you get to feeling better soon, and that the end result is the end of your chronic foot pain.

Be well,
Tony

Hi Andy,

Got some folks over here in europe who won't be attending CCR, so maybe we can keep you company.

Hope your up and about soon. I had an ankle Op a few years back and it was painful walking, can't imagine toes! them little suckers help balance, and will be sore for a while I'd guess.
