  2. #myrightfoot surgery – a storyboard

    After walking with a damaged right ankle for about six months, I finally had surgery on 26 January.

    What with everything happening in my life – busy work season (one of my clients is the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon), the kids having just started a new school year (including Da Son starting at a brand new school) – I considered moving the surgery until May. But in the end, I found myself booked in at Constantiaberg Mediclinic at 6am last Monday.

    It turned out to be a very difficult two days, and I am still struggling with pain management and the frustration of being immobile. But I don’t want to bore you with the details. Instead, here’s a summary of my surgery…

    This story’s getting a little old now…

    January: overhydrate & collapse at Ironman 70.3 and wake up in the medical tent.
    January – March: walk around with my ankle hanging on the floor. An MRI diagnoses a non-existent peroneal tendon.
    April: Peroneal tendon reconstruction & repair surgery.
    May & June: Foot in the air, in a leg cast.
    July – September: Intense rehab to get back on track, in order to join the rest of my training team in preparation for IM70.3 in 2014.

    That was my year so far. Then I resigned from my job to start up my own freelance business and focus on my family. I had clients lined up and they were all eagerly waiting for me to work out my notice period so that I could blind them with my awesomeness from October…

My Instagram

Oh my gosh, I'm SO excited. Just received my mini photographic studio-in-a-box and am so impressed.
#lightbox #photo #excited #play Thinking back to my cross-country trip with @theunogwaja. Some of my favourite humans are in this pic. I miss them so. 
Also... check our awesome @newbalanceza kit... comfort for daaaayyyyyysssss (I still find myself wearing something from the range on the daily)
#bettertogether #unogwaja2017 #makeadifference Yup, I can taste that Cheddamelt and double thick milkshake already, @_official_spur_sa 
But at the same time I can't help but wonder how real this is 😶 It's so handy to have a #baker #boy in the house. Finally... an assistant in the kitchen, and @brightboykris is becoming an ace at decorating too. #homebaked #cupcakes The remants of one of my #magic props, courtesy of #puppy @ladygillydoggie. A #puppy and her #mom. @ladygillydoggie is having her snip tomorrow. Poor baby doesn't expect a thing. #adoptdontshop #rescuepup #sterilize I'm going to have to make some changes if I want to get fighting fit again. 😱 #unfit #training #diet My @heidimeetsworld has officially concluded her Course 1 magical studies at the #CollegeOfMagic. I'm so proud of my little #magician. Onwards to Course 2, while @brightboykris spends the rest of the year completing his Junior Magician's Diploma.
