Tomorrow D-day Makobob

Tomorrow I walk the line.
by Makobob
Tomorrow I walk into a new page of my life. Tomorrow I take
the first steps in a long, slow trip back to my beloved Baja. My
new life starts, a rebirth, a change, a beginning of a long,
maybe difficult, slow journey to regain my life. To take it and
me down the winding road to paradise, my paradise, my Baja.

Some time in the morning the surgeons will amputate my left
foot, they will cut it off. Close to the midway point between
knee and ankle the Dr. will use a saw on me. Zip, zip and I lose
an old tired friend. A friend who has been with me on many
journeys to Baja and elsewhere.

I will be happy to let the infected foot and lower leg take the
trip to HELL. Yep it is straight to the hottest fires it goes.
Never to be seen ever again, up in flames. Foot be gone,
good-bye amigo. You will be sorely missed.

The hospital will keep me one to two weeks. Dressing the
stump that will be the base for my prosthetic every few hours.
Making sure there is no new infection. Shaping the stump,
getting it ready for its new life. Making sure it can heal
properly and hopefully fast. I think I am ready physically
and mentally for this trip to my new life.

A fresh start, another chance to get it write. Yep I can do that.
A chance to help myself and others. The process will allow me
to share the pain, sorrow, joy and in site with you. I might
need a little help getting over this ordeal. And you might need
to know what to expect if life comes knocking on your door.
Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life. Join me on this
adventure to paradise. Tight Lines amigos and amigas.
