Surgery in the morning
Wish me luck, they are finally going to operate on my right hand tomorrow.

I have had a cough/sore throat for three weeks and they still cant get my antibiotics figured out and filled out between my doctor, the pharmacist, and the insurance company.

Then Tuesday my son gives me a shove off of some boulders and I twisted my ankle upon landing, I thought it was broken for a while, but it is just a bad sprain. The ankle is swollen up like an over-ripe mango and hurts like heck to move.

Hopefully next week will be a lot better!

I still had fun with the scouts tonight though!

You know, Surgery, Falling, Sprained Ankles and other various injuries really tend to take away from prime GL1200 riding time... Get well soon, your Wing misses you already!

Good luck and happy landings with your hand surgery.

I've already had so much surgery ... all, happily with excellent outcomes ... that I'm starting to feel like a bionic man (maybe that's why I feel close to my GL1200 ! :d ): quadruple, cardiac by-pass, two cataract eye operations, and an internal endoscopy to diagnose and repair a peptic ulcer (caused by H. pylori -- antibiotic cure) pretty well raised my confidence in what modern surgeons and anesthesiologists can accomplish today.

You'll do fine.

Maybe next September I'll visit an orthopedic surgeon to repair my knee. Nothing bad ever happened to me from riding my GoldWing. Last March, while changing a front flat on my car, I tripped over a nearby curb while carrying the spare and came down ... ALL of me a dead fall onto my right knee! Confusedhock: While seeing all the near and far galaxies, my first thoughts were, "RATS! I sure hope this won't stop me from riding my bike!" So far, riding my bike isn't a problem. But driving my car (five on the floor) kills my knee. So it goes.
