    I saw the ortho this morning. Unless there is something crazy in the MRI this weekend, likely to have surgery early next week. I'm encouraged by the recovery timeline - it's faster than Dr Google lead me to believe. Assuming surgery next week, I should be able to walk with a boot the first week of April and walk normally around May 15. I don't know if that means I can bike to Bike to Work Day, but I'm hopeful.
    How's your recovery going, Jon? And Ms, route canal?

    You must be so proud of the way your daughter is handling this. You are a lucky dad.... Except heh, it's not exactly all luck, I'd it? I'm sure you know you have something to do with why she's that way....

    Recovery going well. Next Thursday I expect to be weight-bearing in a boot. Then another 6-8 weeks and I can walk unassisted.

    Gremlin is back to soccer. She's a little tentative but she should be fine shortly

    Recovery update: I WALKED TODAY! Not very far, but this is the first time since March 8th that I've walked without crutches or a boot. It's an exciting day. I'm probably 3-4 weeks out from starting to bike again.

    Non-biking update: Gremlin 2 got whacked in the face with a soccer ball again. Teeth seem fine.

    Not a long ride. It was tiring and my right foot is the one I push off with, so having that leg still weak from surgery and months of not being used makes it tough. But I rode a real bike outside after 96 days of not riding and it was awesome.
