No er visits... my grandfather said to count with him to three... and yanked it out on two. Lol... that stuck with me. It didn't hurt much... but i was irritated that he tricked me... lol. I carry surgical snips in my tackle box now.

My son and daughter have seen the infrequent moan or grimace as I watch the grandkids play basketball. I told her the pain is tolerable, and that I am forever grateful to have the possibility to live six months. I also asked that they get a sturdy beach chair because it is difficult getting up.
Z and I shared PM for years. He kept his secret of his wheelchair bound status from the forum but felt secure with helping me with how to get out of chairs as I was beginning to have problems. He was basically giving up his anonymous status to help me. That took courage, and I was always grateful. He did the same for Bob. I have enjoyed the PM over the years as many good people have crossed all our paths in our journey. I appreciate your concern, but please do not make this into something more than it is. I was blessed with a wonderful life and I chose ten years ago to share my health journey. There was a reason why z did not share the specifics of his health journey because he did not think he deserved sympathy because he wanted to be treated like the helicopter pilot he once was. A man who shared his wisdom with me. So keep it real or I will always feel like you have put me in a wheel chair and feel sorry for me.......I am still an arrogant argumentative stubborn forum member....please do not turn me into something I am not.....a person needing sympathy. Not a chance, but I will take you to the end of this journey as best I can.

If you have ever been hit in the face with a steel beer can which has been turned into shredded steel, it kind of makes the game stupid, but even as stupid as our hockey games were.......nothing compares to curling. I dunked a basketball my junior year in high school. My son dunked it his freshman year, soon sixth graders will be doing the same, yet the antithesis of athletic competition is curling. It has to be a Russian plot as soft Americans think they could be an olympic athlete......if only they could do some doping to allow them to handle the vigorous competition of curling.......I am ready lord if I never have to see another curling event or hear an adult talking about curling. I think they picked up my crazy on curling, and the subject was changed. Otherwise a delightful night on a diminishing inventory of the same.
