Last week my orthopedist made my final appointment for 9 January 2012. If everything continues as well as it has, he says he’ll clear me to return to work: Eleven months to the day since my accident. This has been a time of forced reflection for me. And a healing process; both physical and mental. In a fraction of a second one’s life can be changed forever. It could have been worse, of course. I am lucky. I will be returning to much work in Honduras. Friends and colleagues are waiting. I am waiting. But not for long.
