followed up with the doc today.

is it bad when the first word out of your doctor's mouth is "shoot"?

in my case yes. even i could look at the ct and see a wrist bone, or what is left of it, in the wrong place.

surgery is wed. morning.

hopefully, all goes well.

Sorry to hear that, KeRNeL. I'll keep my fingers crossed that your surgery goes smooth.

Bummer, man. I guess you can look on the bright side - drugs that interact in funky ways with alcohol!

I'll round up a posse and will bring you a "care package."

Shoot - Put the old horse out of his misery.

Where at on Wednesday? I'll be in the "big city" working, I may have to stop by and make sure that it hurts.

Congrats on equaling the number of posts from LAST YEAR in January alone :-)

Yeah, I'm being a difficult ass today...must be Friday.

Bad news indeed, but don't get too depressed about it because;

1. It's yer left wrist. C'mon, how many times do you really NEED your left wrist since yer right handed?

2. It happened at the "extreme beginning" of the riding season, not in May.

3. After insurance, it will only cost you about as much as the "entry level carbon frame bicycle"

4. Forget #3, that is depressing.

5. You can still "spin and grin" inside.

6. You are the kErnEl, recovery times will be less than mere mortals.

7. You might be thinking that you are alone in your misery, but rest assured, you are NOT!

8. refer to #6

9. Bones heal faster than you think, but PT is still painful.
Do what they tell you. Without fail.

10. You are the kErnEl, let us know when you are ready for a meet and greet at Monks House of Ale,
and we will be there!!!

Get Well Soon My kErnEl!

Bummer about your wrist. Good therapy after surgery...12 oz curls!

Good luck with surgery!
