I've Only Stubbed My Toe

I haven't updated the blog in a while because it feels so very trivial to me right now.

A little over a year ago my nephew, Charlie, had a heart transplant. He survived his first year with it, which is a huge milestone in the transplant world. Recently though, he had to have some scar tissue removed from his trachea due to multiple intubations throughout his life. Unfortunately, there were complications and the end result is that he's now in a vegetative state and on life support. It's just tragic.

So, for what it's worth, I'm 9 weeks and a day post op; I'm walking on gimp stix and hope to lose them by the end of the month; PT and French Class are going well; I walk in the pool 3 days a week. But as I said, my osteotomies are trivial in comparison to what Charlie is going through.

I wish you the best big guy.
