I just thought it would be nice to Wish ND2ELK a speedy recovery!!! as He just had major foot surgery and will be off of it for 6-8 weeks .
If I’m right he had bone removed from his heel and grafted to another part of his foot they also placed a 3+ inch metal pin in it!

Tom I just wanted to wish you a speedy recovery…
Now is a great time to read up on the things you love !!!.... {:o)

Fellow Lumberjocks

Got the dressings off today from the surgery. Oh, how we forget the simple things in life, LIKE A SHOWER!!! It was wonderful! I still need to keep it wrapped and in a wood shoe but can take a shower as long as I keep it dry.Thank you so much for all your kind words!

Tom keep your powder dry, the foot powder, that is.
Take it easy and rest. You deserve it.
