The crutches were like a pole vault, so I couldn't even roll down the stairs, they launched me. Must have fallen 5-6 feet. I landed right on my feet (both were broken in half a dozen places.) It hurt, but when the doc checked it again a week later, he said I was recovering faster than he expected(!). I was afraid it would have knocked out/loose the pins, but apparently not so.

At this point no extra challenges will be taken or for that matter chances. I ripped 20 stitches out of my leg when I was younger because I couldn't restrain myself and I have a huge scar from that so that's not going to happen this time.
