    Be safe... Don't let this happen to you !!!

    A month ago I had my ladder slip out from under me. I was cleaning gutters on two story townhomes. As I was about to get on the roof, the ladder went and down I came. Two surgeries later and 8 to10 more weeks of no weight on left leg due to shattered tibia, fibia and left ankle socket, I want everyone double check their ladders before using them.

    Now that I have been sitting on my couch for the last month, I have run this through my mind more times than I would like. There are a couple things I could've done, but I thought I was safe.

    Bob has ask me to post pictures, so I will in the next couple of post.

    These are from the first surgery. They had to place the external hardware to keep my foot from flopping around.

    I was wondering how you were making out. Anyone can be one misstep away from landing in that bed. Get well quick, bro.

    I didn't want to spill the beans and I was waiting for David to come clean. He and LeCours were out drinking one night a few weeks ago. David saw this weird dude checking him out and decided to drop kick him. Turns out the "weird dude" was David's reflection in a revolving door. The broken leg was the end result.

    I had my spine snapped during a JV football game. My back is a host of steel cable and screws. I never set off the detectors.
