on the mend!

Well, most of my time in the past couple of weeks have been spent with just enough energy to work and then crash. My body has taken advantage of rest to restore itself to a functional state. I tell you, the more days that went by, the more I found things that were destroyed with me. It finally came to the point where the days go by and I feel a little better with each one. It finally does not feel like a knife is being shoved into my chest when I sneeze. I have been able to get some good motion out of the arm. I go back to the doctor on Friday for another xray to see how things are looking. I am hopeful that I'm coming along quite well and hope to be back on the bike SOON!

It is driving me nuts. I am all but sure that I have lost the base that I had and will need to work on restoring it. I have a bunch of parts collected now for my new bike I'm building. Some of the parts I already talked about and some have just shown up in the last few days. I have my sweet @ss fork coming and should be here any day. I will post about that next. Thanks!

I'm so glad you're making progress. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be. Hope you are back in action soon!

Great to hear you are on the mend and still have "The Motivation". It has been fun watching the TD from afar this year ... gives me a different perspective. Makes me want to race again ... maybe I'll be joining you on the start in 2013?

Michael, Thank you for the kind words. It has been tough mentally not being able to ride. It is a true passion of mine. You don't really know what you have until it's gone.

Dave, Thanks. The motivation is certainly there. I "itch" to be passed this injury so I can get back to it. A lot learned in this down time.
