Nov. 25th, 2004 @ 10:38 am I'm Thankful
Just to still be alive.

I've never really told anyone how badly I was hurt, not even my parents.

I almost died a couple times.

My wife was in very bad shape when I had the accident and when I came to in the second hospitol, without anyway to contact anyone to check on her, it was all I could think about. I got out of bed and stood for a while, then once an hour I started taking walks by the nurses station so they could see me mobile. I had enough brain power left to know I needed to prove I could move to them if I wanted to go home without being AMA. Not enough brain power to know how bad the back of my head was caved in, hahahah. I can laugh at this by the way. I deal with it every day. I'm sure some of you think it odd to laugh at it but being depressed about my situation won't make it better. Anyway, I convinced the Doctor to release me the next day.

I should have stayed a few weeks. Long story short is I was home alone. Could barely sit up by myself, couldn't hardly eat, just in general a mess, but it turns out I had friends. Customers checked on me a few times a day and brought food and actually changed my many dressings in the parts I couldn't reach. Unfortunately they were too polite to tell me the back of my head had turned black and I was too out of it to know. If it hadn't fallen off like something from The Fly, I would have died in my sleep from infection. I had barely the reasoning to call my doctor when I realized I could see my skull.

I had a good friend that had started this accident as a customer, drive me 80 miles to a hospitol, then a week later drive me from there 300 miles to another, and a month later drive back and bring me home.

The people I sold the house next door to fed my dogs and cats all summer and even cleaned my pool.

I could barely speak for months at times. Some of the people I would really have thought of as friends seem to have a lot of trouble dealing with me. I mean people that live here that have known me for years. There not rude or anything, but I can tell it makes one or two of them uneasy. I expect they will get over it.

I am getting an extrodinary amount of things finished on my house lately. I am determined to live in it this year. I need at least two more surgeries and yesterday we found out my wife has once again fractured her spine, so that's more for her very soon.

I will rest when I can live here and I am more than a little thankfull to be able to get up and do things everyday, even if it hurts.

Things allways work out in time.

When I go back to work on Monday, I'll ask some friends about that Hardwood Flooring for you.

Thanks, I was thinking someone in Canada would be a good one to ask.

Canadian lumber is usually cheap causee the government gives the timber away to supplement the industry.
