It looks like this surgery went really well and despite having some adverse reactions to the anesthesia and pain meds (vom city), things have gone a lot better than in the past.
I'm 10 weeks out and still working on re-building strength, but the pain is mostly gone. The bone is healing slower than they thought, but it's still on track, regardless. I'll start PT soon and plan to be ready to hike by the end of February when the Mrs. and I head to the PacNW redwoods.
As always, get in touch for photos of the really yucky stuff, but here are some progress pics.

and the big holes in the middle where
they secured everything together.
