I went bad to my room

You are bad. Go to your room!

I wanna get the third ascent of those plums! I'll bring my climbing mag reporter to spray the details.

Jeez, Luke's now a boulderer. Ryan is now an aid climber. What is the world coming to? I think it is a sign of the apocalypse.

This weekend was mellow by intent. Saturday I tried desperately to regain sleep and rest, knowing that I would need every scrap of energy I could reserve for my long week ahead. This was made difficult by nurses waking me every two hours starting at 6 for my Tylenol, then my hydro which I really need at 8 followed by a courtesy, "don't you want to do something with your day?" Wake up call at ten. I managed to roll over after all of them and sleep until one or so. My friend josh texted me around then so I decided to at least turn on the tv and chill in bed for a bit.

He arrived not long after that and we had a really nice visit.

My buddy Josh


After we had a good chat, I got dressed and saw him off to his car. Then I went for dinner in the day room, which was halfway decent and after I immediately went back to my room and chilled out on my bed and watched some more tube.

Sunday was much the same except I bit my nurses head off a tad a six this time so they didn't bother me much, and I chilled pretty much all day till around 6:30 when Anders showed up. At one point my nurse asked me what time she could get me up, and I had been up watching tube and taco'ing all day, so I replied "I'm up already!!"

They just wanted me to get out on such a nice day(and probably thought I was depressed for sitting in bed all weekend), but I was focused on resting. At about 6:30 Anders came by and I decided to get up and go for a spin and my st paddy's day Guinness. We rolled down to "neighbours" restaurant just off oak and king Ed, and had a beer and kalimari to celebrate the occasion.

Anders got pics but I haven't got copies yet and am reluctant to steal them from facebook. It was excellent to get out tho and I much appreciated the company and the occasional uphill pushes.

I forgot I got this pic!!! Oops

This was the best smile I could illicit from Anders!! ;)


Edit thanks guys! Gotta run! Replies later!

yes.. well if she can swap pitches with me on ultimate everything without too much whining then she will have proved that she is confident enough to be my one and only ;)

I know right?? sh!ts cray son! ;)

Thanks Cosmic!! I have lots of spirts pulling for me too! Ron A said he would put in a good word and Sandra told me a member of the pemberton band informed her that they were doing so as well!!

I feel so blessed in many different ways!!

So psyched to read how well you are doing, Mike! The pool sounds like the best place to get really fit, for the next bit. Count me among those sending you lots of healing energy!

Thanks Wayne! The pool rules!! Very stoked to get back in there again. The gf strong one is empty at the moment so Tuesdays only for now but, hopefully they let me in the gf strong one when the maintenance is done. Apparently it's pretty popular tho so I might have to fight someone for a spot ;)

What Surgery? You probably told me and if so sorry I forgot..

Oooohhh. Must be good then!!

Sometimes I think you are right but Sandra knows what she wants and I've made it very clear that ill be ready when I'm ready and she can take it or leave it. Good news is I think we are both almost ready so it looks like this thing is going to work in the long run. I've learned my lesson in the past about relationships, thank god, so when I think we're ready I'll pop the question.

Your probably part Viking anyway Mike so it's good that your sharing hops fortification with Harald Fairhair himself.
You must be getting quite a routine going now at G F Strong.
On the occasions that I've worked in the park across the street I've seen many an unfortunate soul being wheeled around after some horrible accident with no hope of ever walking again. I'm so happy for you that you won't be going down that road,and alot has to do with your awesome attitude you've had since the beginning,I don't know whether I could have stayed as positive as you have. So impressed. Hope to visit soon as we will be over in Vancouver alot.

I'm suprised the posse hasn't scoped out the buildering around GF Strong yet with their rabid thirst for climbing,why stop at the games room wall.
