Cpl. Scott is recovering from his fourth surgery in less than two weeks on his leg which was injured in a terrible motorcycle crash last April. The good news is that it looks like they've saved his leg, but the has a long, long, long road in front of him. Cpl. Scott described the surgery to KTBS before he left:
"It's going to be four surgeries. The first three, they're going to go in there and clean (the infection) out and put some antibiotic wash in there," Scott said Thursday at his home in Shreveport. "The fourth surgery, they're going to go four inches down my leg and break it right here and put that apparatus on." That device will stretch his leg and allow the bones to connect again so that his injured leg can become the same length as his other one. "It could take up to two years to go in there and work on that bone and get it to grow and fuse to that ankle," Scott said.SIGIS has been running a fundraiser to help Cpl. Scott and his family with costs not covered by insurance. We've got two more weeks running on the fundraiser before I forward all proceeds to the Capital One fund set up for him.
