  • 2018 Goals and Challenges

    I have lots of goals for 2018. First, is to transition from using a walker to a cane. I am close, I can walk pretty well with two canes. Even though I will look like a pimp with my cane, I hope that I can be walking with no assistance at some point in 2018. Second, I would like to be able to swim between 3000-4000 yards per pool session by sometime late winter or early spring. I am around 1500-1800 right now, and definitely see lots of room for improvement. Third, I would like to be riding bike outside by spring. I can spin for 5-10 minutes on my trainer and am not even close to being able to get on and off a bicycle myself. I also need to find the right saddle that will work with my mangled up gooch. I damaged an aweful lot of tendons and the nerves down there are pretty wild, but I am confident that I will find something. Fourth, is something happening right next week. I get to have my colostomy reversed!!! It will be wonderful to not have a shit bag hanging off of my stomach. Hopefully the surgery goes well. I will also be getting more hardware out of my back. I think this will take place around May or June. There are a couple rods holding the weight of my upper body on my pelvis while my spine continues to heal. The doctor said everything is healing great, and they are very pleased with my progression. Once the rods are removed, I should become more flexible, which would be GREAT. Next, I will learn to put my own damn shoes and socks on. With improving flexibility and mobility I hope to become more independent. I am tired of asking people to help me with little things and can't wait to be self sufficient. I think all of these goals are pretty attainable, and I will work my ass off to get there. The goal for 2019 is to rock to dirty kanza 200, and getting back on skis. Triathlon is not in the picture for the foreseeable future, due to running. I might try an aquabike though!

  • One of our own hit on the bike.

    So today marks 3 weeks since the accident. I have come a long, long ways and still have miles to go. My attitude remains positive, and I'm trying to make the best out of it. I am not hooked up to any more machines what so ever! My kidneys have regained function, and I'm eating a normal diet and can drink as many fluids as I want. It's hard to do much for physical therapy with all of my broken ribs/ left collar bone. I'm still able to get to the edge of my bed and "dangle" which hurts like hell, but is beneficial to stretching a bit.. I will continue to be monitored for a couple days and make sure my kidneys continue to function. Next step looks like I will be checking into some kind of in patient therapy facility, because I can't put any weight on my feet for at least another month, and still need more medical attention than my parents can give me. My doctors and nurses are all amazed at the rate of my progression and ability to heal! I would really really like to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers, because they have helped tremendously. Thanks for the cards, gift cards, shirts, blankets, everything! It's pretty cool to know how many people care about you, I actually tear up a little from it sometimes. Also, Mayo clinic is absolutely amazing, I have had the best team of doctors and nurses in the world. And without Chris Crocker (the ex army medic and physican assistant) who completely saved my life until i got to the hospital. I need to do something very special for him and haven't thought of the right thing yet. Next big function on the list will be regaining function of the bladder (I've been getting cathed like 6 or 7 times a day since my kidneys started behaving again)

    @Jennifer Post you and your friend are so kind. I am done with all major surgeries, out of the ICU, and finally have the damn feeding tube out. I have had such a thirst, cotton mouth feeling going for pretty much since I start remembering much, which was last Friday. Whenever anybody asked what they could get me for anything I would basically reply "Gatorade"..when I got the package yesterday it was before my last round of skin grafting and my last surgery, I literally was so happy that I teared up when I opened it up..when I finally out of surgery to my new room, I had about 4 jugs of it :)

  • One of our own hit on the bike.

    I've been walking with the walker for about a week now since I got the ok to bear full body weight. Hurt like hell right away, but getting easier every day. I went home for the day last Saturday and hung out at my parents house and watched the world championships with some friends. It went so well that I came home again Sunday, and I started begging everyone at the nursing home to let me move out of here. So today I finally get to go home!!! I still have a long ways to go with walking and doing things on my own. But I am literally seeing progress every day. It feels so damn good to finally be in the comfort of home after just over 3 months being in a hospital/nursing home.

  • Show us your Pain Cave

    "Show us your pain cave" sounds like something that could be considered sexual harassment.. C'mon it's almost 2018... My usual setup got moved to my parents house where I'll be at for a while.. here it is in mom's sunroom

    .... or maybe some under boob. Which in my case is just boob.
    I'm too busy admiring the mystery that is the incision on his right inner thigh. How high does it go? Is @mbrekk44 now one better than Lance and goes by the moniker Non-pelota? So many questions...
    Lol.. still have the boys, incision is 1 of 4 fasciotomy cuts.. there was so much swelling in my leg from my femur being out of the socket in my pelvis for so long. They couldn't reset it until they rebuilt my crushed pelvis. And being run over. So I had compartment syndrome and they had to make 4 big incisions to relieve all the pressure and save my leg.. I'm going to have some hella good scars. But I'm still dos pelota, but I haven't had the chance to see how well they work yet.. I know this probably really concerns @AaronWebstey
