In Recovery

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, I hope things are going well as this has been my first time back online for the past month.  I thought I'd check in as to why.  I was in a substantial bike accident .  Crushed femur, missing 8 inches of where my knee was, that type of stuff.  Currently I'm in ICU in Palomar, post 7th surgery reconstructing the knee and leg.  This is definitely rough, but like one of my doctors reminded me... At least you were wearing your gear so we have a leg to repair.  Just a reminder ATGATT.  Well, I'm getting a little woozy here so I'll sign out with please ride safe everybody, and see you all at the next meeting I can attend.  There will be pictures to accompany this once I'm well enough.

We have you in our thoughts as you fight you way back.  I am assuming this was a street incident. So, there will be needs with the day to day stuff. Speak up and we will get involved.

Hey, I got computer time and figured I'd update.  The room number changed so the phone number changed, the last 3 are 785 now as that's the room number.  I'm scheduled for a late day surgery tomorrow or early Saturday, had a scarring revision surgery on last Friday on my knee that was supposed to be what is this Friday but  I scarred up a bit too well which threw a wrench in the doc's plan.   Mmm, bone graft's scheduled to go in for the missing section of femur, caution, heavy drugs ahead and no, I'm not allowed to share.  My wife informed me that the quality stuff is actually in a locked box on the IV bag post when in use.  Tighter security on that stuff than an ATM refill at a casino. Well, we're at 8 surgeries and counting.  I'm hoping this is the last one and not make it to the double digits before going to acute rehab across town.  I'll leave it at that as it's getting close to meds and dinner time.  Mmm, oxy and chicken strips while watching , "Naked and Afraid"

Got to visit today for a few hours he’s in good spirits due to the weather was unable to make the run down south to pick up magazines that have been offered up but was able to bring a few from my own collection which is not very large hopefully we can get some sort of relay set up to take advantage of the offer from the other form member to get the magazines up to him because daytime TV sucks balls

Went to see Brad today, spent a couple of hours with him...was good to see him, he's in good spirits...tough what he's gone through.

SDAR mascot Doc Holliday also went to see Brad and practice his Therapy Dog work... he remembered Brad right away.
