JPH Posted May 17 Share Posted May 17 Howdy! The rumors of my demise are unfounded,,,I am still here to the chagrin of my enemies and the delight of my friends...what a ride we had..All started out with getting rear ended by a drunk driver...well that gave me some soft tissue damage in my neck, shoulders and upper back..No fun.. and as the weeks passed I couldn't feel my hands..I mean at all..Well the Drs at the VA did some x-rays and it seems that the impact of the accident moved some shell fragments that were in my neck and things went downhill from there..They were pressing right on my spinal cord and well several surgeries and infections later..I ended up being laid low and not being able to do much of anything for way too long. As Mr Baggins asked : "Don't adventures ever end"??. No heavy work..no real light work either at times while I was trying to beat the infections (that kept on coming back and that means another surgery and starting back at square one...)..and rest and not do any more damage. However..I am on my last few days on these new meds and they are kicking arse on the infection and I am now able to get back to work on a limited basis for now..Still no heavy lifting or hammer swinging yet...but in two/three weeks I should be able to get back into this hammer and tongs..FINALLY.. So all in all you will see my cantankerous self popping in from time to time... I'm BACK!! JPH 7 If you wish to know the price of freedom..Visit a Veteran's Hospital...I am humbled by their sacrifice... Why is it when the Mighty Thor throws his hammer he is dispensing Justice and fighting Evil..BUT..when I throw my hammer I wind up in a mandatory 16 week anger management course??</p> I came into this world naked, screaming and covered in someone else's blood...I have no problem going out the same way...
