Thanks. Home today and in good spirits. Can walk, bear weight or use crutches, but will need to use my brace locked for the first 3 - 4 weeks as the doc had to tighten up a ligament. Still, wont be long before I a properly back on my hind legs.

Hi Tony,

I'm so glad that it's finally come out and that you can now start your real recovery - TAKE IT SLOWLY, don't rush the natural healing process dude. Looking forward to riding with you when you're able to do so.

Good to see you up and about. Won't be long before you're snorting some dust :imaposer:

Yo, Tony, so glad you are on the up and up!  I have recently moved to Glencairn in the cape so when you in this part of the world please let me know.... Am currently bikeless but won't be for long. I need to get out and meet some of the cape dogs soon :biggrin:

Glad your adamantium is out, Moondog.  :thumleft:

Is the drill bit also out?  Is that the thing in the bottom right hand corner in the bag of toys?

Wheelman - that sounds like a plan - whill do.

Yep - the doc found some infection, so he decided to take out all foreign objects, including the broken drill bit. He broke it into three pieces before finally got it out.

The longer self tappers are a piece of art. Hollow, very sharp on the tip and even the threads are as sharp as a knife blade.

Only a pleasure, Jo. To you and all the dogs that have taken the time to SMS, BBM, phone and visit, thank you so much - it's a privilege to be a part of a group like this!

To White Rhino, a special thanks for braving my wife's wrath by bringing a copy of Sport Illustrated, including the Swimsuit calendar for 2013. I put it up in a prominent spot in the house, and so far just sideways looks, but no snotklap yet  :patch: - Priceless!
