    So last Sunday, I was asked if I wanted to play basketball with some guys from the neighborhood. I hadn't played in almost ten years, but used to play all the time through my early thirties (I'm 43 now).

    Short story, the very last game (I played four 15 minute games), I tore my right calf muscle and ruptured my right achilles tendon. I go in for surgery on Tuesday morning. As my banner shows, I have a WDW vacation planned in about two months. Doc says I'll be weight bearing by then, but wondering if any of you fine DisDads have had the same procedure, and how long your recovery was.

    My wife is none to thrilled at the thought of needing a wheelchair or EVC for this trip.

    Sorry for the injury, but just to let you know it does not get any easier. I had not gone through the operation you are about to have, but I will say a prayer for successful surgery and quick healing. Take care.
