  • Deer vs Motorcycle
  • Yes, April 8 I was coming home after mens club at church, and Sure enough a deer got me...
    Busted all 8 ribs, the clavical deflated the lung and bruised the heart...
    Oh and they had to repair the spleen too...
    Two days shy of a month in the hospital, I`m healing well, but it is SLOW GO!
    Dr. says I can`t do anything until the lung & heart are fully recovered, I hope to prove them wrong as 2020 is the time they say I can start doing things...
    Blood thinner to arrest the clots is daily medication and therapy on the left arm is helping regain movement and range of motion, but I need to build the lifting muscles...
    Our son John has been doing things on my 8N "Shifty the 50" ...
    He weeded the garden plot a couple weeks back and started running the mower over our "40 acres" today...
    It sure is tough watching someone else doing my work!!!
    I do get outside early to piddle around the shop, BUT hafta come inside as the heat rises, it takes literally takes the breath from me...

    I said all that to say this >
    I need patience badly, as I`m not used to this,

  • Sounds like a bummer to me. Do as John suggests on your recovery. I haven't been down on mine in 14 years and don't like the thought. Hang in there and enjoy the help doing things around your place.

  • You are dang lucky to have survived. NOW, pay attention! Listen to your doctor!
    I read your left arm issue. DON'T push it! I'm getting therapy for my left shoulder rotator cuff surgery May 9th. My surgeon said at 6 months it was only 10% healed. My shoulder tells me very quickly that I'm not behaving. Do the therapy as directed.
    I have lost my whole summer of plans for tractor show flea markets. BUT, I'm doing better with my arm. I do not want to have another surgery because I damage it. There is next year

  • Yes You KNOW therapy is very important and that it is to be done correctly!
    My therapist girl has made a point to remind me "Wrong" will hurt you and cause us to back up...
    It`ll be OK in a few months hopefully, by doing as my girl says...

    Thanks for lifting my name in prayer,

  • Re: Deer vs Motorcycle
  • Yeah, I had another therapist look at my situation, that makes three what have checked it...
    He says I quite possibly have joint damage, on accountta it "pops" when I move,
    I feel the muscles or joint "jumping" and rubbing against each other????
    They got me taped up, trying to put reverse (?) pressure on the bad spot...

    I Hope I ain`t in for more surgery,
