Hospital-butt is just not the right stuff.

Mend it and send it, Largo~

Congrats on being parolled. Must have felt like the Count of Monte Cristo in the forsaken Chateau d' If.

Your accident may save many of us from a similar fate man. I for one am keeping an ever more diligent eye on myself and my partner in the gym and on the stone these days.

Hope your escape continues to be full of well wishes and snide remarks about blue speedos.

Glad you are back home. For a whole lot of reasons, don't want to be in the hospital any longer than absolutely necessary.
Good luck with the continued recovery.

Hi John:

Just below your thread is a Warren Harding one: Park Rat says:

Here is some more background to the picture of Harding in the hospital.
It was originally in the Sacramental Union Friday, September 19, 1969
One of Harding's comments on stepping in front of a pickup truck.

"All I know is this is the silliest thing that ever happened to me"

What he didn't know at the time was that his shattered leg and knee would have to be re-broken and set again in December with various pins added.
Come to think of it Harding always approved of adding a few pins not to mention a few bolts.Our intrepid climber would be back on the mist Trail in late May 1970, not only hiking but carrying a huge pack."" (End of Quote from her thread)

So, if his shattered land and knee had to be rebroken, et. all and then later he was back on the trail with a huge pack, you can do it too.

Best wishes for a good recovery.

Very glad to hear that you have surpassed this significant hurdle. As you probably know or have heard by now, extended hosptal stays can lead to aquiring a contagious and ultimately fatal disease such a pnuemonia. It is what first crossed my kind when a patient was not responding, or taking longer than normal to the post-op restorative therapy which was required, as far as enabling them to transfer out. Big resposibility which layed primarily on the therapist shoulders. Next stop (often as short as 4-7 days post op) was a rehab/nursing home where it (contagious diseases breed with a vengence).

Anyway, welcome back society and best wishes on the road to full recovery, big guy!
