If it ain't one thing it's another
« on: April 15, 2021, 04:35:06 AM »
I had open heart surgery on Jan. 4. An aortic valve replacement as well as an ascending aorta replacement. My recovery went amazingly well. Last Tuesday, April 6, I had a 3 month post op visit with the heart dr. He said that I could get back to normal activities (nothing normal about me). I got one motorcycle ride and one bicycle ride in. Saturday while cutting down a walnut tree I had a mishap and broke my left foot so now I'm down and out for a while. I get surgery on the 28th. I hope my recovery goes well this time because the nice weather is killing me. It could be worse. It's not terminal like what a couple friends are going through.

Prayers for a quick recovery, getting old ain't for sissies.  We don't bounce like we used to.  Don't ask me how I know!  :grin:

Just keeping things in perspective.  Once played golf with a stranger in Denver.  At the finish, I complimented him on his good play.  He deferred.  Said he sucked at golf.  It was all due to the skills of the guy whose heart was transplanted into him.   !!!   Made my day.

Welcome to life.
That thing that occurs between birth and death.
It is a bummer though breaking a foot at the beginning of riding season.
Timing is everything.
Heal well.

Thank you. There was no ladder involved. The tree was on the ground right where I said it would fall. I was cutting the branches of when the trunk rolled on my left foot. I have been doing this work for around fifty years and this is my first injury.

Thank you everyone for the well wishes. I'll be 69 in May and this is my first broken bone. I've never had a cast in my life. I'm glad that I got off this easy.

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

I hate trees - busted my leg with one and am now done.  I have a guy that I can now watch do it...
