March 4

For those of you who don't know the colors of Jeremy's casts are Boise State University (Bronco's) colors. They guy who put on the casts came out (after the casts were on) and said "I hope he didn't graduate from University of Idaho (rival college team in Idaho). College football is HUGE in Boise so everything is Blue and Orange - Including Jeremy's casts.

We got to the hospital at 10 am. They took him to surgery about 1:15 pm. Out of surgery at about 2:15 and back to he Elks around 6:30. Long day!!!!! Jeremy is a little uncomfortable tonight but all considered he is doing fine. They made small incision in the back of Jeremy's calf and somehow lengthened the muscle. Then they cast the ankle in a 90 degree position for about 3 weeks. The casts come off around March 26 at which time they will put him in new braces. They made molds of his feet so they can make those new braces. Hopefully the discomfort from the surgery will subside in a few days and he can stand on the casts. I don't know how - the look kind of slippery to me, but we will see what they come up with.

Thank you for your prayers!
