Get well soon, Misty.
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

Thinking of you as you must be "under" at the moment, T!  Hope the op goes well and the healing quick! Strength!

Hi all, just a quick update, Misty should be in theatre by 1, should only have an update on the success of the op by late afternoon or 2mor, seems like its going to be a 3 hour plus op! Positive that it will go well and she will be on the road to a speedy recovery! Thanks again for all the support it is sincerely appreciated  :)

Misty swerved to avoid a car yesterday morning. She did not actually fall of the bike, but still managed to damage her leg to the extent that she will be needing an op tomorrow.

She is in the Wilgeheuwel hospital.

She swerved for a car, and at some stage her foot hit the pavement or something, and cracked a piece of bone out from just below the knee.

Get well soon Misty!
Ouch... probably means a titanium plate and dakskroewe like me... Mend well Misty!

Get well soon Misty.

You should spend more time on your bike an dless on the mountain bike.

Seems like you are forgetting to ride the motorized version of the 2 wheeled mode of transport :pot:
