Mostly in a wheelchair, because when I'm on crutches my foot gets all swollen up and purple and it's not nice. I've been to every match of my team.

Back from the hospital. Everything's well. But next surgery will only be on the 6th of April, which is kind of a bummer for me, because I expected it to be it bit sooner... He told me that after surgery I should be able to walk normally again in 6 weeks. And that kinda makes me doubting about going to Pinkpop again for 3 days, because that is 8 weeks after surgery... But I really wanna go, and think I'm just going to buy tickets and recover the cr*p out of myself

Surgery was successful. It was over before I knew it; it took about 5 minutes. It was a very strange feeling when they took out the screw, I can't compare that feeliong with anything I know. Now there is some bandage on my ankle that has to stay there for 1-2 more days. After that I can start learning how to walk again.

I forgot to upload the photo's of the X-ray scan, I will upload one here so you can see which screw they took out. On the photo there is one big screw, that's the one they took out. All the small one's and the plate are still in there, and will only be taken out if they are starting to hurt.
