Like Sands Thru The Hourglass....

Just when I was getting my hopes up that surgery would finally happen this week... they were dashed Tuesday night.

I now have an infection called cellulitis in my foot, ankle and part of my calf. Cellulitus is an infection of the deep subcutaneous skin tissue. It was likely introduced to my body by the holes in my foot and ankle from the external fixater. They are hooking me up to IV antibiotics. At this time we don't have an ETA of when surgery will take place. You can see what my healthy (yet drastically swollen leg) looks like on the left. On the right you will see the same swolleness (is that a word?) on the right.
