Hi Slim,

How's life?

Here everything's going great! My leg is straightened, and long enough by now, and i'm just waiting for the growing of the bones.
School has started again here, and untill now i've been able to go every day (in wheelchair, of course)
Next week I'm going to hospital again for some weeks, because my knee will be screwed free, an i'll have to start knee-bending by then.
I guess my knee has got rather stiff by not bending for 3 months!
