    Went to the Hospital the other day and they told me it's all healing very well and they gave my some photo's to look at. This is the first time i've seen the damage.

    wow, that must have hurt a bit. hope it didnt break the skin.
    I work as a nurse in an ICU, and it still astounds me when i see breaks like this. You're very lucky. Hope it heals quickly for u.

    The second Pic is as is now. There used to be a screw from one bone to the other but that is out now.
    Thats how it will stay unless it gives me grief down the track

    That is probably the correct way of looking at it... Somehow I don't quite see it catching hold with parents...

    "Fine, fall off the roof, just make sure you land right!" :)

    I think the amount of swelling is what stopped them from operating any earlier and by the looks of that xray there must have been heaps of swelling.
    Well if your going to do something then might as well do a good job at it and Steve it looks like you did a great job on smashing that ankle.
    If you didnt want to come to the Brisbane mini last year im sure there were better ways to have got out of it then trying to test gravity ;)
