    Now that's a heck of a backup plan.

    Thanks all for the get wells and commiseration... This is the second flap in pretty much the same spot from eight years ago. Apparently, I had some prominent bone growths on the ischium area which caused the reoccurrence (sp). Hopefully the bone smoothening and flap will heal well and not regrow... I don't think my butt or sanity can handle another surgery.
    As for the nightly chocolate, I'll be drinking either a chocolate Ensure or Boost for a long while for the extra protein.
    And as for everyone having a struggle and there being no ordinary life, the life I had pre-injury (as boring/mundane as I thought it was), it now seems like a glorious dream.

    I wish you speedy healing.

    This thread reminded me of an immediate reaction I had last night while watching the Oscar clips for best movie. Regarding the Life of Pi I saw an analogy between the story and sci.

    You're out at sea. Your ship goes down. You make it to a lifeboat. There's a tiger on the lifeboat.

    We've discovered now that the head of the third metatarsal in my right foot has grown larger AGAIN and must have been pushing on the foot of the hospital sand bed, which has caused a dark spot on it. Quite likely, I'll be having foot surgery once my bed-rest is done.

    What's with this bone growth shit?

    Good luck. Life is an undefined crapshoot for sci -- after 20 years it becomes a bigger challenge.

    Hope you feel better soon Scott.
