    umd update thread

    I thought it'd be nice for his friends to have a thread to update his status. I just got this update via email from him, his surgery was yesterday.

    Good news. He'll be pleased at the prospect of getting off his ass. (We can say ass).
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Best wishes umd. Heal fast.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    I think unbanning him would help the healing go faster.

    Here's a link to some updates since the accident happened

    Please, don't even get started. Steve seems like an OK guy, but he broke the rules, was warned, and broke the rules again. You can follow him on facebook, or that other place.

    Because Tom is a nice guy and the dust has settled from previous drama. As long as the dust stays settled his name will probably not be verboten.

    and from one who previously stirred the dust, we should now leave it settled.

    For those of you on Strava, he's posting some updates like this one with their app.

    Steve Weixel walked 0.0 mi and climbed 0 ft on Nurse's Station Loop
    about 12 hours ago with the Strava iPhone App

    and a comment about the same from his wife (I assume wife, I don't know them well at all):

    "There were a few wheel touches (IV stand and walker) but everyone managed to stay upright."


    Best wishes to him and all others involved or otherwise healing. Also, kudos to umd and his wife for their positive attitudes.
