cant believe how clean calculus crack looks now.

Thanks to Scrubber!! There's a new direct start too. It's sweet!!

Thanks Andy! It was great to see you last week!!

all tied to a bad pelvic break sustained when she got taken down in a road race

Ugh.. So glad my pelvis stayed intact!!!! I wish her well!!!

No oxy's but still using the hydromophone. sparingly though, down to 3mg per day. I usually skip it if I'm not doing anything though.

Great you're up and at it, Mike. I have about 25% feeling in my left foot, zero in my big toe so it's weird, I know.

Hang tough and get better.

Mike
I have been wondering about you these last few months and how you're doing.

If I may please deal with your depression. It's very taxing mentally on outdoor physical people like us who are injured and can't do what we love when we want and how we want.
I know I spent 10 years depressed after an injury changed my life.
From a 5.11 trad climber who did big walls every year to a limping gimp who couldnt even climb 5.9.

It's difficult man I feel your pain in your post, your bummed brother. I am too for you but here's the deal. Your still in recovery man. Refocus and do your rehab. Don't slack! Business is business ups and downs ride it and realize you can only control so much and make the best of that day and moment in which you are dealing with.

It hasn't been a year you broke your back and you are as we all know a large man. It's going to take time to heal from this. Good news your young and time is on your side.
Long term goals with baby steps Mike. The rocks aren't going anywhere.

Have a great facelift wish I was going.

BIG props to you, Mike! I wish I would have found this thread earlier. Your attitude is inspirational, and your recovery is nothing short of amazing. Keep strong! If I ever have the pleasure of meeting you, the beers are on me!

Wow John! You never told me that! How are you doing these days! Thanks again for the phone call, what a shock! I almost didn't believe it was really you!! Made my month!

You're right dude. I know it too, I've been out before, but never this long, so this is kinda new for me.

You are doing exceptionally well for how short an amount of time it has been since your injury, Mike. Just think how well you will be doing by next Fall!
Hope that you and Sandra have a fantastic trip to the Valley!!

I just saw Brownie on his way to the Valley. You guys are set. Are you in town tonight? Give me a call, maybe we can do dinner.

still using the hydromophone. sparingly though,

Pain. Not fun. I had a bad gout attack in my elbow a few days ago and after 3 ibuprofen gel-tabs, I still couldn't sleep. One dilaudid later and I was snoring. It's nice to have a stash of Hydromorphone.

Nothin but sun on Wed/Thurs...probably worth sharpening the tools up for a run up a nearby north face...coolest temps of the fall for wed & thurs night...possibly the first sub zero night squamish and north, certainly hitting around 5/6 in Vancouver

we were just talking about Sierra mountain climbing and came to the conclusion that it was cheating by any definition of the term.
