Mike very cool to see your doing well.
I don't know you but I feel like I do.
I'm sending you somthing and would like to order some of your prints, are you still at the same address just a different room?
Please post it up so I can send you some stoke.

Thanks Paul! I guess i've been letting people get to know me via this thread. I've had nothing but positive results so far so i'm pretty stoked! I'm in room 248 now, but stuff addressed to my old room will still find me so no worries.

Thanks Captain! Wishing you the best dude!

Cool pic Relic!! Sweet Problem! I hope your knee gets dealt with the right way. That sucks.

Don't be such a self hater babe. Looking forward to the pool tonight!

So i had a purdy good weekend. After a very nice ride home from Luke and Ais friday night, i crashed out hard. I didn't get to the pool unfortunately because Sandra developed some horrible back spasm's at work on saturday. Sunday I went out to wildwood with Kyle and Heather and ordered the three benny. I love their benny's! It was a real treat to get back there again.

Amazing Bennys!


Sandra was kind enough to give me a ride back to GF sunday night and we stopped at Essence of India in Squish on the way. They had just finished a remodel and the place looked amazing.

Monday morning i woke up really stuffed up. I was sniffy all weekend but i was hoping that it was just allergies. I did ok in pt though, and got into the weight gym with my pt to figure out some exercises for my shoulder. Then I went back to my room, and ran into the doctor in the hallway. We discussed my condition for a bit and she told me to keep an eye on it and let them know if it got any worse.

I had pool at 1 and that went pretty well. We did some nice stretching and walking, forwards, backwards, sideways.
Then finished it off with some kick board.

After some rest, i went down to ot, where i found out that Nigel had double booked me. I was kinda tired anyways so i let him see his other client, and i went and dealt with some paperwork i've been needing to do for awhile.

I went to dinner at five, and after that, i crashed hard. I woke up once for my meds, and then got up for a bit at 11 and couldn't get back sleep till 2.

Yesterday i woke up not feeling so hot. It was definitely a head cold. I went to pt, and put in my best, but the energy just wasn't there. At ten, i was supposed to have another hour and my pt said "you're done. Go sleep."

I obliged happily and spent most of my day in bed. I was pretty choked because a nurse had brought this cold in on friday, and one of the other nurses warned me about her. I did my best to stay away from her, but i'm pretty sure that's where i got it from. I haven't been around anyone else who's been sick.


I got out of bed for dinner, but sat well away from everyone. I dumped my plate of hospital food and ate my currie leftovers instead which was way better!

After dinner i snoozed a bit till Anders showed up and brought me some tea and a nasal rinse setup at Sandra's request.

We had a nice visit and as always a quality chat. He had another engagement to attend, so i bid him adieu, and thanked him for his kindness.

I'm really concentrating on trying to get rid of this thing, so i can continue kicking ass at rehab.

Mike - That cold/flu thing will be a week ( at least )in the badness. We've got it here - Phil was really sick with it - is on day 10 or so & still feeling the effects.

Get healthy big guy !!!!

Weege!!! Let's go!! I can't wait!! I will be busting my ass to get back to health asap. I don't know exactly when this will be a reality, but i'm down! I wanna try and free a lot of it but camp a bit too. Kinda like how Vitaly did it! I don't want to rush up there, i would like to enjoy our time on the big stone!!

It sounds like you are doing well with your current mission. Kudos man. That sh!t is hard.

Thanks Neebs. Sandra's been working too hard, busting her ass to take care of me and stressing too much. She needs a break. I hope she can get one soon.

HohMahn. . . do I know what you mean about getting your stride right. . . those little things we usually never think of. . . like how you hold your frikken toes. . . whether they're in a "CLAW" . . . or lifting up inside your shoes. . . or relaxed and normal. . . it was a trip teaching myself how to ski again after my wreck. . . thought provoking stuff!

That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen! That dribble at 0:09 tells me all the parts are talking to each other.

Keep your game below the rim for a while, K? Don't wanna twist an ankle, right?

Running isn't in my vocabulary yet.. Dunking? That requires jumping. Jump shots are next ;)

Mike. Great to see you making good progress on the process of recovery. I'm getting closer to being there to see you and share what I can. What is a good day and time to visit and where? I haven't been on my computer very much recently , so I'm not sure where you will be be and when.

Peace Out.
