Hey guys and gals!!! Sorry it's been a while, but, well, I have no real excuse.
So, Bear, and everyone else, here is a little progress report.
I was released from hospital, finally, on the 6th of January, I think that was about the 5th release estimate!!! I am at home now with my parents, I lived there to begin with so that made everything much easier!!! Things at home have been pretty good, although with some challenges. Of course it is awesome to be out of hospital, I now have my Xbox 360, satellite tv with tons of silly channels, and most importantly, REAL FOOD!!! I can tell you right now, hospital food is horrible!!!
I have just seen my trauma and orthopedic surgeons in the last couple of days, and they were all pretty amazed with my healing, not quite born of jackal, but hey... The only thing is my femur is looking like the bone is healing a bit slow, which they said is to be expected, considering the number of injuries my body is trying to heal. The same to a lesser degree for my tibia and fibula. They are getting me a bone stimulator to help with this. I am also finally cleared for full weight bearing on my right leg, and 25 pounds on my left!!! This means I can finally start physical therapy for learning to walk again!!!
I am thrilled about this, I cannot even tell you!!!
It has been tough, and I've certainly had my difficulties, mentally with this so far. I am such an active person, and to be stuck with little freedom in my movement has gotten to me at times.
But overall, I think I have managed to keep my attitude pretty good!!! I have decided that for sure I will ride again, and on the street. This time though, I think I'm gonna get something a little more Adventure oriented, thinking a KTM 990 Adventure.
I'll be far less tempted to pull Moto GP antics on the street with something like that... Well, I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying the ride, even in the cold of winter!!! Oddly, in Colorado we are experiencing 60 degree weather for days!!! I see all the bikes on the road, and dream of my own again!!!
Be safe my friends, wear your fukken gear, and have a lot of damn fun!!!
