Crap!

I have lots of experience with broken ankles and the surgery that goes with -- did both of mine (four years apart, thank God). Tom will be only semi-mobile for some time, at least two weeks for recovery from the surgery and up to rather a lot depending on when (if) he can have a walking cast.

The worst things for me were the boredom of prolonged house arrest, and not being able to cook for myself because I was on crutches and couldn't carry anything. Oh, and getting into and out of the bathtub, a risky business that was half backward push-up and half crawl.

All the best to both of you, and I really hope we'll see you in Connecticut in May.
