There's a Bump in the Road...

Skiing is fun.  Lots of fun.
From time to time, people who ski fall and get hurt.  This week unfortunately, it was my turn.  Jesse and I were coming down Mr. K at Big Sky (which is a green run, aka beginner) at the end of an awesome day of skiing up in some more challenging terrain.  Bombing down towards the base, my right ski caught an edge and spun me around.  It was quite the yard sale, and the result was a Tibial Plateau Fracture.  After close analysis of the xrays and CT scan, the doctors determined that I am a border line candidate for surgery, meaning I don't necessarily need surgery.  So right now, I am faced with the important decision of having the surgery, or letting it heal on it's own.  Both options have their pros and cons, and it's really a hard call.  My case is right in the middle.  Tough one.

But Skiing is fun.  Lots of fun.

  1. dont do it, cresty. you are young and healthy, and will have no problem healing that bone with tall pints of milk and a chair. drs like money and unnecessary procedures. stay on tour, skip the surg, and taker easy, buddy. all will be well in about 4-6 weeks. we miss you already.
