... Just got back from 2nd follow-up; everything is progressing nicely.

... Hi Hurtfoot, I'm unsure that I'll write anything incredibly useful here because my surgery was minimal compared to yours. But I want to offer some support and validation; I was NWB on one foot for about a week and I definitely became depressed and stir-crazy!
