Wolfe we all gt that way at times. Just remember that this will pass and you will be back on the road to recovery soon.

You know it will. Lack of sleep does this as you know so well by now. So does the constant pain you live with. Any additional pain just makes it worse and you have too much of that. But the important thing to remember is that you are getting better and someday the pain will be less.

You have a point there, but I was hoping they'd do better than they did.

As for the Cowboys, aint even gonna go there..............

Yes you did have surgery. Arthriscopic surgery is still a form of surgery but much less invasive and traumatic. You were very lucky you were able to have that kind. You would have extensive external scarring to go with all the internal scar tissue.
Oh. I didn't think that was considered surgery since I didn't have to get sliced open. (thankfully!) They fixed my elbow in the same way and it healed pretty well.

I know, I know, face the damn demons...............

Hope you're doing well today! Thanks for the response over the weekend. As my doctor said, "Onward and upward"!

And no, don't go there with the Cowboys, they're already there!

Yep. Even if the video won't play I can see what the song is usually. I'm old enough to remember when that song came out.....

Sure good to see you here again.

Yeah Mandy, sic em'!!! What's that lump crawling farther under the covers?

I told the demons they had to stay in the old CHU, even turned the AC all the way up for them, but they seem to have escaped. I was hoping they wouldn't find me here, but they did. I got to go back to the old CHU tomorrow and get the cleaning stuff I left there, so I'll try again to lock them in.

Wish I could lock that dang Nightmares up far away from me.........

I'm doing a bit better than yesterday, still pretty down for no good reason. Other than the obvious, that is. And you're welcome for the response, thank you for writing.

If you're still around at this obscene hour, I want to offer this (not of my making), as a token of lifting up. You can make it just "one more mile."

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
One More Mile


I feel the night is on your side
Shadows wait you when you rise
You hold the weight of every moment
And more no distance in your inside

And while you wallow in your wounds
You let the devils draw near
One more mile is all we have
You got nothing to fear

I feel the night is on your side
And I don't recognize this road
We sleep all day and walk all night
You're leading me too far from home

And he says pour another drink
And take a good look around
One more mile is all we have
Until the lost become the found

And by the firelight I see footprints
Shadows circle on that floor
And everything is so familiar
We have come this way before

Do I have the will, do I ?
One more mile
One more mile

Do I have the will, do I ?
One more mile
One more mile


The journey you are taking has only one requirement, that you take just one more step, then one more.... Don't fog your vision too much on the arrival, just focus on today's mile. When this day is complete know you have been successful and achieved this days goal. No concerns about tomorrow for it is forever away and will take care of itself.

I like those lyrics.

Good Day, Wolfe! I'm happy to report that all of the 3 day walkers have raised all of their money. The 6 woman team raised $14,602 for breast cancer research. The walk in Dallas starts Friday. I think there are going to be over 4,000 walkers. We're going over there this weekend to cheer them on.

My daughter got a blister on her foot from an 8 mile walk we did on Monday evening. I hope it heals up before then.

I think my mother would have been very proud of her.

Congrats to Team Footsore! That's awesome. I hope the blister is healed up, too.

I have no doubt your mother is proud right now.

Actually it was 9AM my time when you posted that, so yes, I was up at work.

A while back RottnJP and Buki posted in here some comments about how I needed to focus on a getting through day, an hour, even a minute at a time and it made a huge difference to me. At that time I really didn't think I was going to be able to get through another day, let alone week, month, etc. But I could get through a minute, then an hour..........

When I was reading what you posted it made me think back to those earlier posts and realize that in recent months I've gotten away from that and started worrying how I was going to get through next week and the week after and so on, when I'm still struggling with today.

Thank you.

Wolfe, my wife is struggling with her parents declining health and asking me how we're going to deal with it if this or that happens. I have to keep reminding her to take it one day at a time, too.

That's really the only way to deal with it. She asks me how she's going to do something, and I tell her she is doing it.

With Faith and Courage.

And both of you have more of both of those qualities than you think.

I know you've told me a little of your in-law's health problems and I pray for them and you and your wife as you go through this. My own mother's health isn't so great either.

I think my faith isn't strong at all. It wasn't that great to begin with, it's been questioned a lot in the last 23 months. I don't know, maybe I'll come out with a whole new view on things. I wish I could find that courage you speak of.

Mandy, did you hide that courage from me?

One advantage to my way is that you get to go out several times a day and shoot near him with an AK-47 and live ammo. Show him what it feels like.
I like you idea. REALLY like your idea, except for one thing. Considering where he's tied, that part might just rip off and let him fall to the ground. Or course the remaining 9010 feet to the ground would be memorable. Oh, and I think shooting near him so he can get an idea what it feels like would be even better is at least one of the bullets HITS him. Big difference between being shot and shot AT.

I'm sorry you hurt yourself again, but glad that you are recovering and the doctor thinks it's just a pull (even though a pull for you is still pretty hurtful). Bob's uphill curves are a very good picture of your trek. Notice that even the straight parts have their ups and downs.

You are SO much further along than when I first started posting on this thread. I know that you don't think so, especially when you do something that hurts. It's a lot easier for us to see it, because we're watching you from our own positions on that road. And we're all there somewhere.

Included SR in my prayers as well.

Meanwhile, the only piece of advice I have for you is that the next time a drunk guy starts to fall off your lap, just let him go. : rofl:: tongueout:

Love, prayers, lots of gentle , and cradling you in my arms as you sleep.

Hawk
The pull I did a few days back is mostly back to the 'normal' pain, so I was lucky there. It hurt bad enough I (and my Doc) was worried I might have re-injured myself. Hawk, he agrees that I have to let the drunk guys fall off my lap next time, but he said I should catch you.

Sometimes I look back, or read back to where I was and I can see the progress, other times I'm too busy trying to put one foot in from of the other and trying not to fall. Or falling and having to get back up and start again. That's the hardest part.

I'm glad you are back to what you consider normal and hope even that is improving steadily. I know you would like to have no pain at all and we would all like that for you but you have to be patient.

You have made a lot more progress than you realize but your aer right about having a long way to go. Keep getting back up and starting again.
