Shane in the news again...

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to hear about the surgery Shane. I know what you mean about the wheelchair I hate mine. It'll give you more time to admire and polish your hard won hardware and before you know it you'll be up and about again. :D

Let me first say congratulations Shane - that is amazing.

And sorry to hear about the achilles tendon.

Still - I bet that in a way it was worth it. The race sounds amazing.

((((hugs)))) for you from Africa. Dare I say it?????

YOU'RE SUCH AN INSPIRATION !!!!

Way to go, Shane. Awesome, just awesome!

Hope you're doing ok with the injury. Yip, I can imagine how it must be hugely sucky at the moment.

Again, well done!

Thanks again, everyone!! I know it's been a while, but I'll post some pics soon.

Update: Saw the Doc yesterday. Cast was removed, staples taken out, and a new blue cast was put on. He says everthing seems to be doing great. This cast will come off in 3 weeks and then I get a removable gadget to replace it. Still no idea when I'll be able to walk on it, though. He said it could be as long as 4 months. I'll ASSUME he's exagerating!! :D :P

This whole achilles thing stinks. But, looking for a positive side, I had this thought :blink: :

Losing any part of your body is a life changing experience. Sometimes it's easier to focus on what's gone, rather than what's left. I have temporarily lost use of my one leg and it makes me realize how lucky I am to have it. No matter how much a person has lost, SOMETHING remains. We should cherish that something and realize how much tougher things could be without IT.

Having said that, I hope I don't go absolutely bananas before I can get out of this chair! :P :lol:
