Some Rehab in Bolivia

Talked with the n00b for hours yesterday...

Other than the obvious, he remains unable to stand or walk on his own...

Maybe still due to swelling and trauma to the area from the Surgery???...(EDITED: I am not really asking anyone here to answer that... Just wondering)

I do know that the Doctor said the surgery went well...

On the phone with the n00b...

His physical therapy went well today and he was able to stand on his own for a bit, and even took two steps...

Progress!!!...

Amazing...

Thanks for the update locker.

Keeping the possibility of full recovery in mind at all times, as it is one of the many options available.

Just saw teh Bloot. He's out of the ICU, in a regular room, and looking better by the day. Said he was able to take some steps and they unplugged a bunch of the various tubes, monitors, and wires and whatnot, so he's stoked on that.

Once he heals a bit from the surgery, radiation and chemo will start. So he is a long, long ways from being out of the woods. Keep him in your thoughts, he's tough but everyone can use some lovin'.

Yeah they're talking about releasing him into a Physical Therapy location and/or just out all together! Seems they can't start any sort of radiation until those staples and hardware from his back are out. Details from oncology is a little foggy and no doubt getting the bulk of the care from the neurologist team.

Meanwhile, the suggestion from both myself and Leigh-Ann is for him to start sandbagging his progress in regards to walking. NO WAY is he ready to be released and personally prefer he get regular, daily, hourly attention and PT from the comfort of his hospital bed. He needs to get this sh#t zapped from his body asap and releasing him to home would only complicate such a goal. Mobility being a big issue but outpatient for 3 hours round trip at this stage of things....not good!

Tomorrow we're hopeful to speak to an oncologist with an a plan of action. Until then, I told the Bloot to start stumbling on his feet.......literally!

Thanks for checking on him tonight Will, we're on for tomorrow. Meanwhile, Leigh-Ann is hot on the task of working the blog reports and looking into a new computer for him. The hand-me-down that came from Russ requires to be plugged in at all times and that's not really that conducive to working. Surfing, sure but not really getting work done. So, is anyone looking to sell a Mac laptop for reasonable? One that has actual battery life? If so, shoot the details to Russ as the specs of a mac would be lost on me.

Photos are coming along; it's a huge catalog in which he and his agent have been working on. Vintage climbing, historical stuff, flowers, landscapes, etc. An incredible collection taking a lot of time to document and get ready to launch. So much of it required scanning and description as well. The plan is to have fine art, stock, signed and much more available. So those of you waiting for some Blitzo Collection your time is coming!

The Agent: checking in with Bloot's FAMILY
Really nice to meet you all!

Blitzo and I are on a roll getting his photography organized. I hired a young lady today to give me a hand with all the scanning....There is a ton of film...prepare yourselves for time travel and memory sensory overload. Gonna be a fun trip down memory lane for many of you.

BLOG slash online portfolio going live this week. I will send out the address once all the kinks are worked out.

Speaking OF: I need email addresses: yours, friends of yours, anyone who wants info on Blitzo's prints, etc. I will be sending out an email at some point on how to purchase prints, etc.

Here's the deal...Blitzo wants all money made from his prints after he has left this world to go into a scholarship/fund for kids who want to climb and make pictures. I'm gonna work with Soooze and FISH to make sure this happens for him.

Also, if you are a person who is requesting Blitzo's photos for magazine, etc...let me know and I will find what you need. We hope to have all the images cataloged by end of summer. There are a sh#t ton so wish me luck.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Me thinks you should be dubbed "The Angel" more fitting than "The Agent"


Billy ? What do you think when you look at your toes.

Whats next, are you going to join the Circus?

Maybe travel to North Korea and talk climbing with Kim Jong

Get well quick!

Edit: before lipstick enters the equation!

Headphones in the mail now, good luck Blitzo. Didn't have a spare pair, but Amazon Prime made it easy to hook you up q/2 -day shopping too. Looking forward to the fruits of photo-scanning.

Big discussion from the penthouse of Arrowhead Medical Center! Up to speed on med stuff which isn't much of an update. Neuro team wants him to heal before oncology comes in. So PT, X-rays, TV and snacks. He walked around the floor a bit today so he's gaining strength. Russ delivered the gift from Jaybro which is an album of Firesign Theatre and we also passed on the card from Nita & family which came in yesterday's mail.

Laughing, catching up and feeling happy to see out Ninja friend.
