You might have noticed things are going a bit slow on the news front here on ModDB/IndieDB and Desura. There is a perfectly normal reason for that. I have destroyed my right ankle. For the past week I have been in hospital waiting for surgery to have metal plates, assorted screws and wires implanted in my destroyed foot in a hope that I will be able to use it again.

Right now I am sitting at home this is a few days after the surgery and I can honestly say, this is quite possibly the most painful thing I have ever done to myself. I would show you all pictures but it is very discusting. The best example would be something like this

Blueberry Muffin

 
just not a muffin, but my leg.

I broke the ankle playing Baseball, sliding into second base my foot stopped and gripped onto the ground, my body kept moving, CRACK and then the rest is history. Word of advice don't break bones, it really limits you in so many ways.

Please stick with me while I sort out this mess that is my working life right now, it will get back to perfect sooner rather then later. You have my word.

Ouch, that has to hurt. Anyway I have to do some work for my school for a week, first day so far I've been transporting some soviet era industrial junk, broken doors, tables, etc for two hours. Honestly I could not feel my arms for a few hours after that, boy I'm a geek. Now got there and break a leg with your further projects! (But don't break any legs tho)

Anyway, wishing you the soonest recovery.

I cannot compare what breaking an ankle feels like because the things I broke so far were an arm (because someone managed to jump on it -_-) and my right hand's base. Wish you the best of luck for recovery.

Sorry that I'm late to the sorry party, but god that sounds horrible.

The only bone I've ever broken was my right collar bone(of course it was pulled apart in five different places and I had quite a few pieces of bone floating around in that area for about 2 weeks) from being thrown into the ground.

Hope you can use your ankle afterwards still.

Well, I got hit by a car while I was passing the street. I got thrown forward for some 2 or 3 meters. Next thing that I remember is that I had a broken leg, my right hand broken and a small blow to my back (which wasn't too heavy). I was in hospital for 3 months, and I understand how you feel.

And plus, the driver escaped right after hitting me. (The thing that made me rage the most)
