I'm a union man

Just back from the hospital. After 7 weeks of "oscillation" to stimulate the original fracture site the X-Rays showed a huge change. There is definitely new bone and the clean lines of the original cut tibia are now well blurred indicating that the bones are starting to grow together. We have a union at the fracture site.
With a following wind it's now just a matter of time for the bones to really firm up. Sometime in the new year, but hopefully not too far, and we'll be thinking of lizzie removal.
Apart from this being good news, it's also nice to think that I can settle to more walking and general exercise without the discomfort that came with daily adjustments to the frame. This really has slowed me down over the last few weeks, but I've a weeks holiday coming up later this month so hopefully I can start to get back to some real exercise
