Another Free Babysitting for my Sister

So yesterday my sister took their oldest daughter to the symphony to see the Nutcracker and I watched the other three. Sydni was attached to me at the hip. Once she decided her parents were not coming back.

Sydni took a quick pose from her busy playing schedule to smile.
I let the boys play with the car track I got them for when they come over. They think they should get to take it home because I don't play with it at all except when they are there. Little do they know this placewould be dulls ville for them if they took it.

Also Sydni adopted me as her child and tucked me into bed and got me up. I just played along...

This is Sydni doing her best to sing the primary song Popcorn Popping...

39.4 Degrees

Does this mean its finally winter here. Last night it got down to a cool 39.4 degrees here. For people here in the valley this is typically as cold as it gets here. We have very few cold nights. I am guessing that means that it is winter is finally here and just for fun I decide to wear my hat since I only get to wear it like three days out of the year since its usually warm here. Do you like the winter season?

Flashback to May 1998

The Victim...

The Weapon...

The Result...

It all started in November of 84' the leg discrepancy I was born with was 1/4" as I grew so did the discrepancy. It grew to 2 and 3/4" by the time I was in the eighth grade. At that time I had to make a life altering decision on my leg because it would end up giving me back problems as I got older. The options we had were a shoe lift for the rest. And having a shoe lift of 2 and 3/4" was not going to happen. Stunt the growth in my long leg and be 5'-6" for the rest of my life and wait for the shorter leg to catch up then stop the growth in it even then the shorter leg may not catch up so I still may need a shoe lift after that. Or lastly leg surgery. As you can tell from the photo's above. I chose the option of surgery.


Since the surgery I have grown between 6 to 7 inches.

Here is the portion we added to the leg... 2 1/4"
(Note that all of this is my real bone no metal or extenders remain in my leg today.)


This is how far the pins went into my leg... 2+"


One other fact... The Apparatus weighs 1 pound 5 ounces imagine having that hang off your leg for 8 months.
