    I'm back in the pool doing laps as of today. Still a wuzzy from the hit and don't want to wreck on the bike, so I'm still off of it.

    Actually got a broken nose, fractured right sinis cavity, and fractured right optical plate. Beside the extreme concusion. Right eye has a torn retina, that I got laser surgery on yesterday.

    Hopefully nothing permament.

    Today was the first day I was upright fully. Like I said before, I did laps in the pool for about 30 minutes and it felt great to get out and move. Head is sore from no pain meds, but trying to wing myself off. Might try the gym's Life Cycle tomorrow or Sunday to get back in the saddle so to speak. Bad storms and possible snow flurries are a maybe this weekend.

    I wasn't making light of your attack or injuries. I was trying to say, I am glad you weren't shank'd or killed. I will send healing vibes and hopes of no permanent damage.

    Feel better.

    Holy crap! Sorry to hear that Jerry.

    May your healing be swift and effective...........and may your lawsuit be as well.

    Give me a holler when you get it back together. Let's make it a point to connect and run the Tunnel Hill Trail as soon as you are ready. Or, we can pick a hard road and you can smoke me with that OCR2.

    Take good care.

    Man, I feel your pain, having been concussed myself recently (January). Rest up, Jerry.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Injured at work, that's a drag, attacked at work, you gotta milk that one for all it's worth

    Two things, first keep your union rep up to date, employers sometimes try to shirk their responsibilities, there should be laws in place to deal with workplace injuries, the union local will know what they are. You do not return to work until your doctor says so. Employers always want you back at your post as quickly as possible, the sooner your back, the cheaper it is, so they want you back way too early. Besides, once your back to work, they can cut off any longer term treatments that they have to pay for, that they wouldn't normally. The rules are very different if you get your nose broken at work, then if you fall off your bike and get a broken nose. The employer in many places has more responsibility with injured workers, then workers who are injured off the job. No returning to work, until the doctor signs off on it. This is the only card you get to play, so play it well.

    Early in the healing process, you want the "good" drugs, they take the pain away and let you concentrate on healing. What I usually do, as I have been on them a few times, is this.

    Early stages, take the "good" drugs all the time.
    After a while, I take the "good" drugs in the evening, so I can sleep without pain, but use the lighter weight drugs during the day.
    Once I can put up with it during the day without anything, I switch to the lighter weight stuff at night.

    When you switch is a personal thing, I usually find that 2 weeks for each stage is good, for me, your different, and I have been different at times too.

    I get backstabbed at work pretty regularly, but only in the metaphorical sense.

    Sounds like you are pretty damn hurt to me. Man. Laser surgery...not being able to move around...ouch. I hope that you heal fast, and that idiot gets to do more time, and with the most onerous work duty they have there (septic system scrubbing, hog-pen mucking...?).

    Going back to work after something like that has got to be tough as well. Many of those guys are in there for a good damn reason. Take care of yourself.
