So the latest on my dad is that he is due to have surgery to put a plate and pins in his Fibula next Thursday.
Here's a photo of a healthy and normal Fibula...its the skinny bone.

Now this next pic is a sample of what will have to be done to my dad. These are NOT my dad's XRays...but it will give you a bit of an idea as to what is going to happen next Thursday.
Although this photo shows pins that are on the larger bone, (my dads's fracture is on the smaller bone), you can still get the gist of what will happen in surgery.
