SteveMDFP posted a topic in Amputee HappeningsThe Two Top Mountain Adaptive Sports Foundation, a nonprofit based at Whitetail Resort in Mercersburg Pennsylvania, is one of America's newest adaptive sports programs for people with disabilities. This rapidly growing program services wounded troops in the nearby Baltimore/Washington region, as well as civilian athletes with a wide range of disabilities. On Monday, they will hold their annual 100K Vertical Challenge. Ten teams and 30 individual will ski over 100,000 vertical miles. You can come to Whitetail to cheer them on, or sponsor the event from the comfort of your own home. Proceeds will support the work of the Foundation in providing sports education and training to people with a range of disabilities, both winter and summer.

This is not a surprise, this is my decision . Now I should give you a little bit of history. In 1987 was in a plane crash lost TALAS? bone in my right ankle, for 30 years of trying to walk on that foot. In April of 2012, I fell from a ladder just 4 feet off the ground. Shattered my right knee into 17 pieces. Which left my leg bow to the outside. My foot was not in line with the leg bone.so we did and ankle fusion. and this went to hell inside the cast the side of my foot die. they took the muscle from the inside of my right leg at the growing, and made new flat to fill the hole in the side of my foot. Trying to walk on this fusion has been nothing but pain. When the doctor said amputation I was horrified, but then remembered in the plane crash they wanted to amputate my foot then. But I said no and I lived with it for 30 years. So now it's time to fix this pain. After my amputation gets well, will develop total knee replacement. I think this is the best thing to do, and not have to live with pain every time I walk. I hope you can understand what I'm saying, for my journalist stinks. I have spent the last two months reading and studying everything I can about the amputation, and the recovery. Won't have to learn how to walk on a stiff ankle, it's instead a long time. But this was my decision, and I have thought about a lot. Yours truly Dastardly Dan Read more: http://amputees.proboards.com/thread/433/decision?page=1&scrollTo=3163#ixzz2lh90jEk6
