    I have lateral motion down pat...need to work on my forward momentum... Hopefully back home (for the first time since October 25th) somewhere between the 14th and 25th... I don't care if I'm at my normal 80 percent...I can work the rest of that out at home...

    I kind of wish Art Bell was still around. I'd love to here his thoughts on the last year and a half.

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with triumph and disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch;
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run—
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

    Rudyard Kipling
    "Like the wind crying endlessly through the universe, Time carries away the names and the deeds of conquerors and commoners alike. And all that we are, all that remains, is in the memories of those who cared we came this way for a brief moment." Harlan Ellison

    Just got back from therapy... Walked for 215 feet...although with a walker...

    Back surgeon did mention at first a late-August/mid-September recovery and it looks like I might be a day or so ahead of schedule now... Just need balance for going up and down stairs... Other than this... I'm ready to go home for the first time since October 25th....

    I want to man my kettle at the Smith's again even if it's in a wheelchair...

    I know that I need another surgery to repair a slipped L4 implant and if the surgery takes place within the next week or so...I will recommend that they NOT do a follow up during November or December...

    Had surgery yesterday and the right foot seems to be problematic again (numb and painful)... They're going to try rehab today to show progress and it's going to be interesting after three hours of sleep... When it wasn't the constant blood pressure measurements...Dracula took two trips to take my blood...not to mention the times the IV machine kept bleeping off... It was a miracle that I got any sleep outside the time I was on the operating table yesterday... Might need for them to take my ear plugs out of my bag to play it safe tonight...

    The surgeon will try to coordinate rehab from this hospital after he feels that I'm ready... Plus he's ordered a soft protective brace...

    One of the surgeons mentioned as early as Saturday and as late as Tuesday for me to begin rehab at the new wing of the hospital...

    Slight setback caused me to lose any energy I had left... I just have to get back to where I was before I got here for the surgery... Working with physical therapy is good especially after they recognized this crazy Smith's bell ringer... They're going to do everything in their power to get me back to the Smith's kettle...

    I'm closer to 75% even with this setback...

    Don't think I'll be back for kettles until after the 5th...and that is if I get accepted at Encompass and get their dual 90 minute workouts a day...

    Even the place where I credit actually saving my life (Kindred Flamingo - actually caught my back injury) will do...but their 14 day isolation will put a small wrench on my departure date...

    I'll tell you something...anything called Royal Springs Healthcare and Rehab should be sued for false advertising on both fronts... Don't send anyone there unless they root for the Ucks or the Vegas Showers...perhaps the Sharts as well... The rehab was a myth and it set me back a month when I wanted to start working the kettles again...

    I might miss the kettles totally...or might come in a week or so late... It will depend on that 12/5 deadline...

    If you do see one of our ringers...please donate generously as a request from yours truly...
