I think most of us have the ability to act like an asshole at times. But we realize it and stop ourselves. Mostly self correcting.
Then there are those who are total assholes all the time. They too realize it but they are just fine with being that way.
@Ohio_Danimal know you have plenty of advice but one item I'll add...drink lots and lots of water. I know on crutches going to the bathroom sucks but need to avoid blood clots.
I just spent the day at the clinic, hospital for a blood draw, then back to the ER for a CT scan of my lungs...a couple small blood clots in there causing pain and making deep breaths hurt. Surgery on my fibula was 2 1/2 weeks ago from my Halloween accident. Not uncommon but regret not pushing more fluids during my recovery.
So in addition to 3 weeks off the bike for the leg I'll have 6 months of blood thinners...fortunately was not worse.
I’m trying man. Lots of pain today. Trying to deal with it. Counting the minutes until the next two pills. Seems to be doing little. Removing the small inner brace for icing as instructed. Doing what I can. Thanks for the reminder. I’ll try to drink more agua
Pain sucks those first days...for me surgery felt like a reset. It'll get better. Ice and elevating helps, hang in there. Sending prayers and good vibes your way.
Maybe these will help keep your mind off the pain:
I just got caught up on your newest misadventure. I am so sorry man. I am one of those who gave advice 7-8 months ago that the US COVID situation was terrible and to stay in South America. Boy do I wish I would have known what kinda shit show that was going to turn into. Anyway, please take care of yourself. I broke a shoulder and was off two wheels for many weeks. Beyond the obvious transportation issue, it's hard to explain to non-riders the psychological toll being without riding takes on us. Heal up fast and get back to feeling the bugs in the teeth.
I wish you a prompt recovery. Glad that your surgery went well. One day at a time...will lead you sooner than you think back on the saddle. Abrazo.
Hey Dan, loved reading your riding blog. Was great to meet you and was a pleasure helping you with your anesthesia and managing your pain for your surgery. I hope your drive to Dallas will be okay this weekend. Take care my new friend!
Thank YOU for what you did to help our friend.
From Milpitas, California.
Opiods suck after a day or two. Very large doses of edible medical cannabis works wonders and has less severe long term consequences. Combined with Tylenol,vitamins,minerals,and other supplements, this will decrease your healing time. Limiting or eliminating alcohol will also speed recovery and limit symptoms. The minerals really help. Calcium,mag,and such to repair the bones. A high protein diet,dairy rich,little carbs,and lots of veggies, will help too. I'm envious of your ability to tolerate poor behavior in others. I too, am an old hippy liberal, but I struggle with not allowing the negativity of others to affect my mood. Keep on Trucking Dan.Peace and love P.S. give Sunny a hug for me. She's been a good companion.
While we are "prescribing" meds: Vitamin D3. You probably won't be getting the sunshine you need. It helps the bones, and other things, along with some calcium.
We had a great chat at Overland Expo before you headed south the second time, and I have enjoyed your travelogue. Best wishes. I'll see you in Colorado.
Just caught up on your ride report. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Love your way of staying positive....an inspiration for me to get better at something I need to improve on.
Thank you for that second shot. It allowed one night of pain free sleep.
Now, not so much. I’ve decided to stay in Alpine for the 11/30 follow up/staple removal with Dr. Vandelune. Maybe the pain will settle down by then.
It’s awesome that you signed up here to say hello. Your demeanor definitely helped me relax aside from the drugs you provided.
Great to hear of the successful surgery. Hang in there. One day at a time, this too shall pass.
re: Javelinas. It could also be that it is the nature of mature javelinas to stay back and cross open areas, hurriedly, only after the rest of the pack has crossed. You just happened to be in their trajectory at the wrong time. I don't know if this is scientifically true but I've seen it happen this way, lots of javelinas here in Texas.
Good morning inmates, just getting settled into Houston. Looking for threads and recs on places to ride/a crew to break stuff with! Located just west of downtown houston, riding a '16 Husky 701. Anyone planning a SHNF ride anytime during the festive period?
Not quite the right place for that. You probably want to post up here...
Yeah. No riding being done here. Breaking shit I’m good at though
I know you are hurting Dan and we are all hoping you feel better soon but please let us know when you are feeling well enough for us to start giving you shit again.
Give away mi amigo
It would be a waste while your mind is medicated AND dealing with discomfort.
Kind of like pouring high quality Scotch for someone still under the effects of Novacaine. Can't appreciate the quality, and most runs out the side.
