Hi y'all!! It's good to be alive!!
I know most of you probably don't even remember me but I have been away from the board for a while. I had a knee surgery scheduled for the morning of Jan. 26th to clean up my bad knee. I was hoping they could even reconstruct my ACL....but it never happened.
On the night of Jan. 25th I had a cerebral hemmorage(brain bleed) and thought that I was a dead man. I had no idea what was happening to me but I knew something was wrong. It was a pretty good indication something wasn't normal when I lost 100% of the feeling on my entire right side. Ended up in a neuro ICU unit for a while and in the hospital a total of 2 1/2 weeks. I thought I was a hard worker but I have never worked so hard in my entire life as I did in phsical therapy. I'm still not 100% healed, but I'm a damn sight better than I was after all this took place(could barely even move). I'm back at work finally and it feels good to be getting back in the old routine again. It was definately a life changing experience but hopefully I'll be back close to 100% the way I was before. I'm itchin' to get back on my bike. Probably not gonna have anywhere near the stamina I had before but hopefuly that will come as I am able to ride more anmd more this spring and summer. Bikes good, hospitals bad.
