Andrew in the hospital

Here is my gross out photos for the month. Andrew had surgery on his leg on the 23rd of January. The rod in his lower leg was removed. The break above his ankle had not healed and the ends of the bone were not alive. The doctor scraped the bone down to live bone, but in bone stimulant and did a bone graft from Andrew's right hip. Then a plate and screws were put on the location and the screws were removed from his femur. All of this should finally get the bone to heal and allow Andrew to walk again.
It has been eight months since the accident. I really hope this fixes his leg. His arm is pretty much back to normal. We are down here till Sunday to be sure the first week after the surgery is OK. So far I think he will be fine when we have to go home.

Wow I can't get over how bad it still looks. It looks so painful!
