    I just found this post. I was shocked. I thought we were all bullet proof. You guys are really good riders and I never though something like that could happen. Reality is it only takes a second to make a difference between making it and something bad happening.

    I'm thinking about you and hope you make a speedy recovery. I hope we get to ride together sometime.

    A home health nurse came by today took blood to monitor Coumadin and oxygen levels, our shower set up worked pretty darn good, Oxygen is working out, we have set up a daily medication record as a check and balance. PT comes in tomorrow. :deal

    Update 8/10 Today was a great day, however it started out a little rocky for ole steep :lol3, both of us slept well, so well in fact Alan did not get his pain med on time so he was in alot of pain when he woke up, we got his meds, he put his leg up, and iced it, and waited about a half hour, then we were out of the gate, we are continually recognizing little things we can do to make the house more accessible. At this point Alan is only using the wheel chair at the table to eat or his desk, otherwise he uses the walker to get around. The PT thought we had the house set up as well as we could, she checked his oxygen levels, as well as observed how he was getting around, she indicated he is getting around well, and recorded the oxygen levels while he accomplished various tasks, when he took the oxygen off the sat scores did dip, however they dipped the most when he sat up from a laying position, and this may occur to most folks, these results will be shared with the Dr. his oxygen may be adjusted next week. That's all folks!

    Looks like good ol steep is set up nicely. A recliner and a laptop, what more could a man ask for when he can't go out and play with his motorcycles? Just think of all the parts & farkle shopping he can do. :evil

    Downtime, a laptop, a recliner and a credit card is about as dangerous a combination as you could find. Everything is cool until the brown truck starts showing up in your driveway, then the "splainin" comes into play. Some things seem like a better idea while your medicated than they do later. Also don't forget to save some pain meds for the day the credit card bill shows up....DAMHIK...:lol3

    I would gladly loan you my farkled out walker if we lived closer together. It needs the battery charged and it's good to go.
