Long time - no post

I hadn't realised just how long it had been since my last post, but so much has happened.
Busy at work (as ever) and trying to catch up on a few domestic duties but failing miserably time has just flown by. No special celebrations for the second anniversary but marked by a few thoughts of what had happened in the interim.
At one stage it looked like we were on the last stretch with the fixator. The X-rays look great and we started the dynamisation process. After 2 weeks with the vertical rods slackened off the snaps still looked good, but I was sure my ankle had gone over at a bit more of an angle again. Nothing much, but the two lower rings were definitely closer on one side than on the other. We decided to be extra careful and tighted the nuts up again applying a small distraction to the site by pushing the rings a little further apart. This might show if anything is going wrong and can often stimulate a bit more bone growth.
Back again early in January so we'll see then. In the meantime, best wishes for Christmas to anyone who is still reading this.
