    Long time, no update. Overall, I'm doing well. I have nerve pain across my right shoulder, use Lyrica to minimize it. Even so, medicated, its like when your foot goes to sleep? And you stomp it to wake it up? That's medicated. I have developed fears. One kept me from picking up both feet on a bike. Until yesterday. I rode a bike around the store at the Salt Lake City performance Bike shop. Its such a little thing, but to me, its huge.

    i gave up on building a tandem for a number of reasons. So the bigger of the two Trek 950s will be my recovery bike, until my Fisher doesn't feel so intimidating (taller). My Cannondale I wrecked on still needs a new front wheel, and some new bar tape, but certainly survived the wreck better than I did.

    I still have big memory gaps. I have "lost" stuff I know. I was millimeters away from life in a wheelchair and not a day goes by that I don't appreciate that fact. My neck injury could have killed me as well. And the helmet I still say, saved my life. Like my knee recovery, recovering from the whole of my injuries has been really good. Patience learned during my knee recovery paid off in spades. I still have limitations, but mostly what I place on myself due to fears I never had before.

    And you know what? I rode a bicycle again yesterday!

    Cool. Baby steps sometimes are the biggest and hardest.
    I owe-therefore I am.

    I have other fears where I had none before breaking my back and neck. The thought of riding on a hill right now gets my palms sweating. But yes, baby steps.
