  1. Hoping for a quick recovery. At least you don't have pain.
  2. I remember my first Aluminum stick and thinking how light it was. Funny compared to Composite sticks of today.
  3. Hang in there. I know all too well what it's like to go through stuff like that. It's never great when the doctors say "I don't know?" then you have to wait to see someone else.
  4. Just finished building a built in bookcase.
  5. My wife & daughter stumbled into some cleaning up in our yard. they needed to go on steroids to finally clear it up. Nasty stuff.
  6. My last procedure is looking like it’s not going to work. Going for a CT scan and liver biopsy this week. As long they don’t see anything different, I’m most likely headed to major surgery. The surgery involves a resection of the liver and creating a new connection between the liver and small bowel. It’s a 8 hour surgery with a incision about the same as my transplant scars. needless to say I’m anxious and nervous about doing this.
  7. I’m in the hospital and waiting to get my latest procedure. This will hopefully help get rid of my drains. Unfortunately My luck with roommates has continued. I had a private room on Monday night because they were waiting for my COVID test to come back. Once it was negative I was moved. My first roommate was clearly altered and got worse as the day progressed. So they moved me to another room. It was around 11:00 so I tried to get some sleep. At 12:30 my roommate decided it was a good time to watch Rambo 2. I finally feel asleep around 1:00. Only to wake up at 3:30 with his light on and tv blaring again. Plus the heat was turned up to 80. So I’ve been up since then. But now he’s sleeping with his tv off. Sleeping is tough enough in a hospital, but yikes.
  8. First and last pair of shoulders I have. Bauer Flak. I got them in 1989, when I first started skating in a rink. They're so comfortable that I can't imagine using anything different. My Mother in law is my personal equipment manager. She's sewed up holes and changed the straps multiple times.
  9. Not fun. My wife has been diagnosed with it too. Very frustrating.
  10. Glad to hear you caught it early.
  11. It’s a great time. My first time spending the weekend with everyone was awesome. Highly recommend going for the weekend. Hoping my health can finally get in the right direction so I can come back, even if just to hang out with everyone.
  12. Unfortunately I’ll be out again. Health hasn’t been very cooperative lately and likely will be dealing with stuff for a while. Hopefully everyone has a great time.
  13. Well I’m back in the hospital with yet another infection. Most likely around one of my drain sites. Because of everything I’m been tested for the flu and it came back negative, but they decided to do a more sensitive test. The good thing is I got a private room. This week I’m scheduled to have my drains changed out. I’m getting general anesthesia because they are going to be more aggressive with dilating one of the drains that doesn’t want to stay open. at least I feel things are moving in the right direction. Hopefully I can get these out by the summer
  14. Well I guess my body decided the proper way to ring in the New Year was from Umass Memorial medical center. Woke up yesterday with a fever and by the end of the day I was admitted to the hospital. Thinking the IV antibiotics will kill whatever is making me sick. With any luck I can go home tomorrow.
  15. Thanks. I’m home now & feeling better. This year has definitely been the toughest of my life. Even in my transplant years it was pretty cut and dry. I got really sick then I had my transplant and slowly got better. This year of downs has taken it’s toll. As soon as I think I’m making progress something brings me down. I got some positive news about my labs, they have looked better. Almost normal. So without getting too excited, maybe the drains are working as expected.
