Merry Christmas

One month later the leg is healing but the Black Knight walks slowly even if with no crutches. The problem is the knee that is painful and difficult to flex. I think that I will be able to start the running workouts in early february. However by monday I will begin to swim to recover the muscular strenght.In the photos you can see the long scar, very short compared to the one after the first surgery.

The black Black Knight Army's cat, always ready for an ambush, wishes a merry Christmas to all of you!

The last of the Black Knights

(father and son)
Many things happened in this period of silence. The most important is that the Black Knight is grandpa, the last of the Black Army was born on nov. 24th, his name is Leonardo. Now in the Black Knight kingdom there are celebrations and days of happiness. The proud grandpa gave him his first rugby ball because he must become a flanker in the local team before the definitive glory!
On nov. 28th a medical equipe, by a surgery 2 hours long, removed all the iron inside the Black Knight's leg. Everything went well but I have a little of pain again and I am terribly weak: days and days of fever and tons of antibiotics are the reason. A scar of 25 cm. is the memory of this ultimate adventure.
My dear friends enjoy this Christmas time and best wishes to all of you.
The Black Knight is back, the bionic period is in the past now!
