The Calm Before The Storm: 4+8+1+3

Hey All,

As you know from my medical update blog that I posted yesterday, I’m scheduled for my major urology surgery next Monday.

Thankfully this week, things have been relatively calm (no more new injuries) and I am recovering surprising well from my bike accident that occured a week ago from this past Saturday. Most of my cuts and bruises have healed. Also, my bacterial infection has pretty much cleared up and the spots on my face for the most have gone away except for a small spot on my nose that is getting better each day.

Since my accident 10 days ago I have surprising managed to do four 25 mile bike rides, have worked out at the gym 8 of the last 10 days, have felt comfortable to get out again and attend one meetup on this past Saturday (and plan to go to two other events this weekend) and I have managed to mow almost 3 acres of grass. I guess that’s not too bad for a guy that’s recovering from both a bacterial infection and a right broken foot and hand!

I continue to remain positive despite my medical setbacks, but will not let my injuries impede me from doing the activities that I love to do.

Below are just a few photos from the potluck meetup that I attended on this past Saturday. Lots of food and really nice people.

Surprisingly, there were more “Gary’s” than any other first names at this meetup!

I don’t know what the future holds for me in terms of my recovery after I have my surgery next week. However, I anticipate it will limit my activities for awhile due to the nature of what the surgeon has to do. So while the goings good, I’ve tried to be active again (within my comfort level) while it’s a bit calm again before the storm.

Have a great rest of your week.

Gary
