Good to read your progress report and that you are getting out and enjoying life. My brother was on crutches for a Slayer concert, pretty interesting. Crowds tend not to notice the crips. Even if they are eight feet tall.

Big Mike is 8 feet Tall!?!???
I knew he was big, but Ho Man!
Hehehe. Vibes, Big Mike. BIG Vibes. I'm stoked. I got an egret from the wondrous NeeBee today. It's WAY more beautiful in the Real.
Mike needs Tunes....hmmm. Here's one.(Sorry, I don't NAS).

That's about as hippy hoppy as I get.

Hey Mike ! ! !

Perfect weather outside for your last day at G F Strong. This is a milestone from when you were initially at VGH. I'm happy for you that your recovery continues with good progress and you now get to be home.

Heck ya it is Jim! I've been so busy lately!! Hopefully things will start to settle down a bit soon and my transition goes well. Sandra has way too much on her plate and i need to start carrying my portion of the load.

Hopefully i should be able to finish up some of my extra tasks soon, and file a progress report here.

It was great to see you the other night btw!!

Hey Mike, I didn't get a chance to say bye to your buddy Kale. His story was very moving. Please give him my regards and tell him to look me up if he ever gets down this way.

I know you are glad to leave GFS, but I also realize how bitter-sweet the experience has been and will be. GFS is impressive in their conduct as I personally witnessed. Truly a blessing. Now get back to work.

I bet you set some records for fastest recovery! I know there's more recovery to go but getting released so quickly is a good sign. I bet your core muscles are stronger than when you went in!

Getting there! I still can't do a sit-up without my feet held, but the fusion in my lower back isn't helping that i bet.. ;)

I guess it's good when they kick you out for being too able eh?? ;)

Big Mike,

I remember when I first read you were hurt... (couldn't post back then, but I wanted to). It's great to see you well on the road to recovery. I've just got a little pulled muscle in my lower back right now, and it's miserable. I can't imagine dealing with a major back/neck injury. Hopefully reading about stuff like this helps the rest of us to appreciate what health/function we've got. You'll be back standing on dime-edges in no time.
