Counting down the days until surgery. The pain and weakness seems to be getting worse. Poor guy is a trooper though and still busting his butt every day despite the pain.

More Info

Last year skyler injured his ankle pretty badly. The drs told him that it would he sore for a while and kept him on anti inflammatory meds that masked the pain and the damage. The medication was causing his high blood pressure to get worse so he stopped taking them. That is when the pain returned, the weakness was worse due to him using it regularly, and that's when we headed back to the drs. They did an MRI, told him it was a dancer's injury, most common in ballet dancers (we had a great laugh about that one!) We finally found an amazing specialist who sat down and really looked at everything, did weight bearing e-rays and saw that his ligaments arent attacked to the bone anymore. The surgeon will have to go in, scrape out all the scar tissue and reattach everything. It's going to be painful and leave him unable to put any weight at all on that ankle for a minimum of 8 weeks, then will come the physical therapy and a long list of other things we will have to so before he can get back on his feet and get back to work.  

We started this campaign to ask for help while we try to get through all of this, because despite what is going on life doesnt stop or slow down. We still have our kids to raise, Bill's to pay and food to buy.
