Hi all. Some of you might know a little, some might not care at all, but I thought I'd let all y'all in on what happened in the Helmet household.

It was a normal Friday morning, one I was excited about because my boss had just gotten home from Shot Show in Vegas and had landed us some sweet new deals for goods we could see at work, http://www.OPSGEAR.com (you should go check us out now! lots of great stuff and hats/T-shirts designed by me!!)

Anyway, driving to work that morning when I approached the last intersection, the light turned yellow, so like everyone else, i continued through. Only the moving truck that was going in the opposite direction turn lane, decided to turn in-front of me. My wife works at OPSGEAR too and was in the car with me. Not wanting to T-Bone this truck, which would have caused her to crunch into the right front tire of this behemoth, I turned the wheel which made my side of our van smash into the truck.

The other driver was sighted right there on the spot when the police came. Failure to Yield, and declared it was his fault for the accident. Lisa was hurt, but was able to get out of the van on her own. I, on the other hand, couldn't. We were taken to the hospital where it was determined that I had suffered from what they call a Tibial Plateau Fracture.

Now to call it a "fracture" doesn't paint the right picture. The top of my tibia, one side was GONE! It had broken and compressed down into the bone along with the cartilage that is supposed to protect your knee. So I was sent off to surgery where they had to chisel the bone out, rebuild what they could and put like 8 pins and a metal plate against the bone to hold it all together.

Then I was in the hospital for the next 2 days... the first of which was my birthday, so that kinda sucked.

Anyway, that's the short version of the details. The van is a total loss, so we have no wheels now. The Doctor ordered me, NO weight bearing on my right leg for the last 2 months, so I've been out of work too. Just started back for as much as I can take it. Also started putting a small amount of weight on my leg in physical therapy this last Monday...that hurts.

I can't say much more than that, or post photos, as we did hire lawyers to help us with this. So there ya go if you were wondering. :wink:

One step closer to becoming Vader. Alright!

In all seriousness, saw all the posts on Facebook, and have followed it here and there. Glad to hear all of you are OK and on the recovery road.

Well, physical therapy has also been called paid torture! Offers of love, support and PIZZA are always there for you.

I hope your doing better, My thoughts go out to your family

These blast points — too accurate for sandpeople. Only imperial stormtroopers are so precise

Thanks all y'all! It means a lot to have my Imperial family backing me up. :D

PT goes well. Starting to put more weight on my leg. I can almost stand on my own now!! Not quite 50/50 when standing, but close.

It's been a while, thought I'd give you an update. PT has been ruff but paying off. I'm walking with one crutch now, could probably start using my cane any day now.
Also I got a photo of the last x-ray of my knee and had to share the joy! If you wanna see it anyway. Click below and it should take you to the photo, if not let me know.

I haven't tried suiting up yet, but I might here one day soon, just to see if I can. :mrgreen:
