My FU death picture!
I have been doing light duties(watching movies) for the past few days - went into emergency room on Thurs for a twisted bowel - they operated for an 1.5hrs that night. Surgeon said I was about an hr or so away from loosing 5ft of intestine! All I will remember from that night is the pain as I knelled before a chair in the emergency room begging them to give me drugs for the pain. The 3rd round of drugs finally kicked in really well, Could not even tell you what i was in for at that point, just wanted to sleep after hrs of agonizing. Got out Sun afternoon. Slowly getting back into the swing of things. Post opt Doc said I made a great recover considering the Surgeons notes. Some say I could have perforated the bowel and died from septic shock – at no point did I feel I was going to die! When the pain was there I wanted to be put out of my misery at points for sure - My wife said I would not been good at birthing a child. LOL! I agree.
I post this, not to garner sympathy, but to show how close to the edge we sometimes live just doing normal everyday sh!tt. I dont know what lies ahead but I do know I have no fear of going back up (only up once so far) and only regret not getting there sooner. Wish I had stuck with hanggliding 25yrs ago!! I am sure I would be doing both(PPG) today if I had.
Today I am cleaning up stuff – Got a big dinner party Sunday so moving the build downstairs with the 3D printer.
Hope to have some progress soon - but in no rush - I will get this built/static tested and then start working on my trike.
