Posted:It is with a heavy heart and a broken leg that share with my lovely fire family that i will not be able to twirl anything for at least a year ubbcrying obviously, this completely changes my lifestyle! no acro, no doofs, and certainly no sandworm riding.



as it stands, my right tibia and fibia had cracked backwards and displaced before impacting at a bad angle - the only way my foot is connected to the rest of the skeleton is via a metal rod that connects most of the length of my tibia bone via screws. Even putting any weight at all on my legs is out of the question for ages..



it's gotten a bit hard to be chirpy now that i can't stand or care for myself, but at least my friends/missus come to visit and listen to my tales of woe beerchug.



just to youse know in case yer wondering why i'll be dropping off the radar.



thanks go out to pyroptix and captn_shiner for being my rescuers - your kindess was incredible. peace



*** EDIT for xrayness ***

before surgery (the blob is the plaster) and after the rod is inserted.

Ok, Mr. Bender. You're going to want to jump right back into it all.

Remember. TWO YEARS. EASE back in slowly, K?

EASE... expect it to be six months or more until you're back in shape.

Posted:He was already in the spinning seat. I've seen him. There's a photo of him in my gallery.

This just means that now he can throw himself round like a loony once more....


it's rocks that were his downfall, and it'll be rocks that get him in future. You watch wink
