Thinking about you.

I agree. Despite all of the hardware, the color looks good. Keep getting better man. Healing thoughts are headed your way.

Diesel, I know that I for one am glad to see your post. I know I was starting to worry. I am sorry that you are so laid up right now but as you know, this too shall pass. Take those pain pills when you need them, it is harder to get pain under control than it is to keep it under control. You can get off of them later when you are a little better. Hang in there, we are all cheering you on.

Namaste'
Doug from Kentucky

Sounds like the same thing to me.

How else will you catch up to someone who's speeding and you were stationary without accelerating strenuously??

I'm sure he wasn't planning on making this a week long adventure.

Hot pursuit is actively chasing someone who is attempting to evade or get away. The correct term for catching up to a speeder is "overtaking" and in my state, SC, where i worked with a Sheriff's Office for 8 years is the legal word used in the code of law... i know every state is different.

So glad to see you are improving. Yep, take the pain meds when you need 'em. I've been on pain meds for seven years and counting, couldn't function normally without em some days. I feel for you during your recovery. Heal fast and best wishes from Downunder.

Well, the time keeps flying and I keep adjusting the rods on the Ilisarov. I'd have to say that up until last Monday, I was in a constant struggle to stay ahead of the pain. I was having to take five of the Norco each day just as a bare minimum to keep the pain at bay. We saw the surgeon last Monday and, for whatever reason, the pain seems to be holding down a lot. The adjustment schedule has been changed and I'm still getting stronger. This has resulted in me only taking one Norco every eight hours, which is significantly less than before. I'll take this as a bit of a victory over pain or, at least, the worst of it.

Two weeks ago, I took delivery of my new wheelchair--custom fitted for me an I've gotta say that this chair makes things a lot easier. It seems as though all I need do is think about rolling in a particular direction and we're off. On top of all this, we've completed a six-week renovation of our home in order that it is more accessible for me in the wheelchair. Workers comp hired an adviser and a contractor and laid out the plan of what was needed and took care of everything. My wife and I moved into an apartment for the six weeks and are now quite glad to be back home--in our own bed and in our own surroundings. And much improved surroundings they are--I can easily roll throughout all the areas of the first floor. The kitchen and master bathroom have been completely redone to give full access. I've got to admit that it is a huge relief to no longer have to use a bedside commode with a bucket anymore. I can use my very own toilet. After two and a half years, this is a bit of heaven that can't be overstated.

Anyway, keep on trucking and thanks for the kind thoughts. I'll fill things in when I have more medical info, but the doctor likes what he's seeing for now. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Diesel, I always look forward to your posting. I see improvement, sometimes very slow improvement but improvement nevertheless. I am envious of your house remodel by the way. I have a really bad heart and bad arthritis so I see something like a wheelchair in my future (I am still able to get around with a cane atm). Friends find it interesting that although I have difficulty walking and standing I can still ride. Not as far as before but I did 120 some miles yesterday with my wife.

Success is measured in small steps. Remember that.

You have many people here in ADVRider cheering for you.

Namaste'
Doug from Kentucky

In this cctv, computer database world, (bike) cops have no need to risk further danger by chasing speeding motorists. Arrest them at home.

Good news, brother!!! The toilet thing is the best!!! I can't imagine a bed pan for years..... Glad you and your wife are back in comfortable surroundings. I say pop some popcorn and watch a movie tonight.

Keep us in the loop. I think about you everytime I see a motor officer.

Glad to hear your doing better.
Just wondering, if you could, would you get back on a bike?
