Mitch and his leg
Mitch had leg surgery on Tuesday the 25th. He had a bone tumor/growth on his right leg, just above his knee. The surgery was quick..about 45 minutes but the rehab will take longer. All went well and he is slowly on the way to recovery. We had to wait for the volleyball season to be over, of course, and this is the first winter he isn't playing club volleyball in four years. The surgery was his choice as to when it was done, but he made the decision based on the occassional shooting pain and the swelling of his knee area when he biked or ran. The growth is random and isn't believed to be cancerous. They don't know why he had it, what caused it or if he will get any more in his life. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We did, as there is so much to be thankful for.
