    Rick, that's a real bummer, man. But the up side is that it could have been much worse and it's under control. Good to hear from you and wishing you a speedy recovery. Not speedy as in the way say, Big Paulie defines speedy, but in the Will Dehne kind of speedy.

    Oh, and watch out for nurse Diesel Diego! Mean, mean woman...

    Back as in "home" is the magic word. As in, finally, the downside of the hill. Seems like about half the "membership" here is coming back from something....maybe not many as dramatic as yours. The road outside your door is going everywhere and nowhere...it will be there when you're ready.

    Man - that is good to have that discovered and treated NOW. Suppose you had waited another few months or whatever. Could have been 10 x's worse.

    Let your body heal - don't use your energy up doing something foolish. It needs every ounce of energy for that get well process.

    As many of us can attest, the human body has remarkable healing powers. Glad you're home and on the mend. Keep us posted!
