  2. #myrightfoot surgery – a storyboard

    January 31, 2015 by crazymadliving

    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 lifelong quest for the best lemon meringue (apart from my own) has ended. #darios in #houtbay

Thank goodness for new clients introducing you to new places. Mmmmm #pizza, in mah belleh!! How amazing is the food at the @capetowncomedy club?!? #tweetseats #ctcomedy #lovecapetown About to pop my @capetowncomedy club cherry. Thanks for the #tweetseats invite ❤❤ Super amped to see the show. Happy #redsockfriday! #shoOops When I work at the @capetownfunnyfestival I'm usually hidden away in some hidey hole, so the audience reaction feels different. Last night I was in the audience, and the experience was absolutely incredible. Hearing the gasps, the uncontrollable giggles, and spontaneous laughter... Seeing the delight in the audience's eyes and how they jump to their feet for a standing ovation... there is magic in the air at the @baxtertheatre, and you'll be a fool to miss this show.

#JiveCTFunnyFestival #comedy #capetown #lovecapetown #funny #laughter #magic He did it again. Fresh from the oven... thanks @brightboykris!

#bread #homebaked #baking #food You don't do #Cubs #Scouts for the fame and glory. But I love this pack of mine, even when dealing with them is like hearding cats ❤

And then their parents surprise you with a ginormous bag of your favourite chocolate. This #Akela has sweaty eyes right now. @justinbieberkittie doesn't care what or who he sits on. As long as it is soft.
