In Recovery

The North Country woman, pictured here from the 1940's, is recovering nicely from an ankle operation to remove about 29 pounds of metal from her ankle, put there six or seven years ago to repair a broken ankle, suffered on a fall on the north country ice. She is recuperating and is doing nicely, although it may be a few weeks before she salsa dances or runs a half marathon.  The doctor complimented her on her nice veins and the beautiful EKG.  Who knew?

No other photos are available.

Now that is a cute picture. Very recognizable as NCW, too.

29 pounds?

We are pleased to hear that she is recovering nicely. The worst part is behind her. It's all uphill from here!

Glad to hear she is recovering well. Tell her to take it easy and take advantage of some spoiling. We like having her around.

I suspect some hyperbole in the original post. However, I am so glad to hear she had the surgery and is recovering nicely. I remember her discussing past surgeries and I know she was not looking forward to this one. Please give her a get well soon message from me. She is, as the RP said, very recognizable in that picture from the 1940s (really?!).
