My Achilles Tendon Rupture

Hello All!

Here is the deal. Some of you know and some of you don't, but I had some surgery done last night. I Tore my Achilles Tendon on Tuesday and have been in the Hospital since Wednesday.

The surgery was successful (especially if the intent was to produce sever and acute pain in my ankle) and I am now on the slow road to recovery. It will be nine months until I am allowed once again to play sports (I injured it during soccer) and It will probably be a little while before I can get back to drawing comics. I have had to scale back some items I take for granted due to my new injury. One is mobility and the other is privacy as my family is coming to visit and I wont have much alone time to sit and draw rude and tasteless comics in their presence.

On the bright side, the ordeal has given me a number of comic idea's that I have to flesh out on paper when I get time. So don't think of this as a death of the comics, more of a short hiatus.

I hope you all continue to humor my poor attempts at comedy when I return these threads to their former (un)glory.

Seriously, I can say that all the people supporting me in these comics are my favorite people since you are the ones who motivate me the most with your lies of enjoyment.

Thanks again.

Last thing I want to leave you with: PLEASE stretch properly before and after any activities. As far as I can tell it would greatly reduce the chances of this common and debilitating injury!

I'm sure I will bestow more gems of knowledge upon you as I frequent the orthopedic doctor in my subsequent visits.

That's about it.

Take care (of your Achilles Tendon) and be safe.
