The bandages are off...

...and Fiona is disgusted by her own foot, yet she can't stop worrying the incision/stitches.

Tired child

The first day of school after the beginning of DST is always one of early bedtimes, but Deidre has already fallen asleep doing her homework at 5:30.

Spare parts

The doc gave us the option of taking the hardware from Fee's ankle home with us, after they sterilized it. My buddy Greg's first comment was "What are scrap places paying for titanium these days?"

Out and awake

Fee is out of surgery and doing great. Fairly alert and somewhat subdued. We should be heading home soon.

Ready for surgery

We're at the hospital, waiting for Fee to go and get the metal out of her ankle. It's going to be a long week next week while I wait on her hand-and-foot during her recovery.

Mission Accomplished

I spent a lovely rainy day with Deidre helping her finish her school project; a model of the solar system. All I did was help her with drilling holes. She painted all the planets over the past few weeks and made all the moons.
