I'm home now, recuperating from my surgery. I got home yesterday around 5pm. spent most of the evening on the couch just going 'wow' i'm home and life is still moving on around me. I really don't have that much pain from the surgury site, just tiredness. My face is so puffy from water retention. I'm not sure why really. The naps have been nice. I go Monday to have my catheter removed and to experience the joys of 'voiding trials' I wonder if I'll be judged innocent or guilty during my trial. I don't believe I have ever been on trial in the past. I'll let you know how it goes.
I tried updating my blog via cell phone during my experience by just sending text messages, but for some reason my blog will only accept multi media picture posts. I will have to report the problem to blogger and see if it is my sending device, or a global issue. I'll try to keep you updated via the very slow 21.6k dial up connection I have here and through those random trips to town with my cell phone connection. Have a great weekend in the meantime.

a Death to angry beavers

Angry beavers be gone!
The nurses all thought my angry beaver was funny. The resident doctor thought I was crazy, or rather an Oregon sports fan of some sort. You could tell he was trying to be politically correct.

Labor Day Riding

We took a leisurely trip to Lafayette on Monday. As a rider you get to really be a spectator in the sport of motorcycling. Some of the reasons I love Indiana are the wide open spaces and that golden sunlight just before sunset.
