  2. Fellow bloggers -

    I’m new to blogging. How do I enter info onto the Injury/Surgery Date Summary Table? For the record, after a year of Achilles tendinitis from tennis and skiing in the Canadian Rockies over Christmas and in Utah in February, I was skiing at Whiteface Mt. near Lake Placid, NY last Saturday. I took a fall forward, the heel of my right boot didn’t release but my Achilles did. As the anesthesiologist correctly observed yesterday before surgery, if the top buckle of my boot had been tighter I probably wouldn’t have been going into surgery. My only consolation is that if it didn’t happen on 3/15 (the Ides of March) it would have occurred sooner of later while playing tennis. The tendinitis wasn’t getting any better and I wasn’t giving up tennis.

    If someone can give me some basic lessons on how to post on my blog I’d appreciate it. I will also ask my teenage son (who was skiing with me when it happened).

    Thanks all.


  3. Michael - I’m pretty green when it comes to bloggin’, but I’ll try and answer your questions. It took me awhile to be able to navigate around comfortable on the blog site. Anyway, here is a link that Dennis set up that explains how to enter the data into the summary table widget: http://achillesblog.com/dennis/2008/03/08/achilles-timeline-widget/

    For posting, log in to your account (upper lefthand side of your page) and then you should go to the “dashboard”. Click on “write a post” and you’re ready to go. If you are already logged in you can click on “site admin” under the META tab on the left side of your site. This should also take you to the “dashboard”. Hopefully I’m not leading you astray. Perhaps there are other, more efficient ways of posting that I haven’t discovered??

  4. Michael - I did it skiing too. Feb 14 while cat skiing on Vail Pass. I went around a tree (quite wide actually) but the tree well extended pretty far below the tree. The light was pretty flat. So I hit this depression and my weight came forward, and I believe that all my weight transferred to my left foot. Then there was another drop off and I tumbled forward. My left boot didn’t release either…my theory is that since I was in a depressed area that my tips and tails were above my foot and perhaps that lodged my boot in the binding. Don’t know. I do know that it hurt like a &%$#. I don’t think that my top buckle was too loose but that’s certanly a plausible explanation. Anyway…you’re not the only one. I promise it gets better…

  5. Excellent article, I will take note. Many thanks for the story!
