    Things and stuff and such
    2 1/2 weeks ago I was wakeboarding and took a bad spill, my ankle was twisted and ripped out of the binding very hard and fractured the talus of my ankle in two places. I had surgery 1 1/2 weeks ago they used 2 screws to repair it. I went back for an x-ray today and everything is healing well, got another cast put on for 2 weeks but I can't walk for another 8 weeks:(. But I'm very glad that I will fully recover, this is the worst injury I've ever had, I'm on temporary disability from work till late december, but I guess it could have been worse. It sucks not even being able to work on my Taco!!!

    good luck with everything, just keep on resting it and healing and itll be no time before you are walking, working, and fiddling around with the taco
