This entry has been a year in the making (follow this link to view original posting “No Spleen, No Kidney, No Problem”). Last month marked the year anniversary of my near-death “smackcident” which left me with a busted femur, a lacerated spleen and a crushed kidney. I limped away with a higher metal content than before the accident that included a stainless steel rod in my leg and fifty staples in my tummy. The rod is permanent, but the staples are gone. Here are the before and after shots–a year apart. As you can see, it’s healed quite nicely and I’ve got a cool scar to expose in the blogosphere. For me it’s been a year unlike any before… let’s say navel gazing has been that much more interesting.
