Again, that's all I've got.
Thanks Aurik, anything is better than nothing, for consideration.

Thanks Steve, I never thought of that one; that might be a possibility that we can work on.

Thanks Bruteforce, leg curl is a good option if we end up going to the gym, depending on whether he's able to get the fused ankle through the narrow gaps left for the legs in the machine.




Thanks for the ideas guys. When he sees the surgeon in Jan, he's going to try to remember to ask him about the calf issue as well; but at least until then we now have some viable options.
