      Oh geez Barry. Feet are a tricky situation. I had to stay off mine for three months once. Best to get it fixed. Take care.

      Feet and back...think those are the two worst for pain. I guess because we need to walk to get around. I empathize, believe me.

      All good thoughts going with you for successful surgery and a fast uneventful recovery.

      Oh gee, I hear that's not nice and I need it too. The Dr. told me if I didn't do it soon the bunion could still come off but the toes would not move back into place. As it is I come home sometimes with bloody feet from the toes rubbing together. The bunion doesn't hurt at all. Hope you provide updates as you go along.

      When I broke my ankle three weeks ago I thought, now isn't this just great - here I was thinking I'd like the bunion surgery in summer so as not to lose any time skating, skiing and snowshoeing, and instead I wreck my winter with the ankle. Which is fine as of re-check yesterday.

      Everyone I do know who had bunion surgery is very happy now and back to their regular activities. You will be the same, cause I say so.

      Thanks everyone. Surgery went well and I'm home, Percocet has kicked in and it doesn't feel too bad. They gave me a boot that I can walk in, but have to keep everything clean and dry. No field training for Brooks for a couple weeks.
