Re: Prayers for JacknTexas

Got a message from Jack. NO SURGERY on the leg!! Sinus surgery will proceed on schedule. Apparently there is no tendon damage, but there was tearing in the calf muscle which should heal without too much trouble.

Please keep him in your prayers for a good result and quick recovery from the sinus work.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Prayers for JacknTexas

Just saw this thread, been kinda busy the past couple of days. Thanks Scott.

Thanks so much for thinking of me and my wife right now. Your prayers and thoughts mean a lot to us.

Quick update....

The leg----The fact that I have a deep muscle strain as opposed to a torn achilles is beyond good news. I was so happy when the ortho dr told me is was just a severe strain and not a tendon problem. I had injured this leg 13 years ago and it has never been the same, so not having to get cut on really made me feel a lot better about my situation.

I am in a medical boot for a month, so I'll have a few weeks of that. I tore it pretty bad, but not loose. There is a big knot on the back of my calf, but it's still way better than a tendon issue.

I am not in any constant pain. I get some sharp pains when I move it in certain ways. I am moving around for the first time today without crutches, albeit slowly. So my outlook is very good today.

Sinus'--I was already scheduled to be off work from the 10th thru the 1st for sinus surgery. I have had earaches and sinus issues my entire life. The CT showed that there were some mechanical issues and that a surgery was about the only option left. I have been dealing with this last sinus flareup for several months now.

My surgery is still a "go" for Thurs. and I am eager to see if this will help me. My sinus' trigger migraines and you know how those can be. And those of you who have sinus issues know how yucky it makes you feel. I am hoping for some good results there.

Thanks for your prayers and thoughts.

fyi--I am Correctional Officer for the State of Texas so I have BCBS and have above average coverage. Most of my stuff is 80/20 with some copays. So that part is all good. A big blessing indeed.

I have enough time off saved at my job that I my income should not be effected by these two issues. So again, another huge blessing.

Unless something comes up none of us foresee, this is just a mild inconvenience for us. God has provided and your post have done nothing but make me even more sure that things will work out fine.

I'll post up when there is anything worth reporting.

Re: Prayers for JacknTexas

As I said to you already, I am so relieved that your leg is not worse off. I told you that if you didn't want to go Saturday ..... you could have just called instead of rushing to the ER. I'm glad that you are going to be okay.

I will be praying for you on Thursday & will be anxiously waiting to hear the outcome. You are like the brother that I never had. I will miss my riding buddy. I hope that you don't go stir crazy while you are off. :

Let us know what we can do for you. Start your bikes up, drive you somewhere ..... whatever you & Tina need.

Yea, try moving a ST1300 around in a small garage. They sell tip-over bars as an add-on.

There was a dude who went to a ST rally in Denver a few years ago. He had a great time. The LAST minute before leaving the hotel after packing up and heading back home a few states away...his ST fell over and CRUSHED his leg.

He had to store the bike and take a plane home in a full cast.

It's the little things that get you some times.

Re: Prayers for JacknTexas

Thanks for the encouraging words.

update from today.

Surgery went well. Doc was pleased with how things went. I was at the hospital by 940am and by 230pm we were heading back home. Pain is mild, but I have some pills to help me if needed.

As far as my fall riding season, this fall became toast when I hurt my leg Saturday. I am pretty sure the recovery from that will take longer than the sinus'. I tore it pretty bad. I am guessing it will be well into December before I can even think of getting on a bike.

I just want to say thanks to my wife Tina who is the best ever. I can't imagine facing challenges without her. She is so supportive and takes such good care of me. I am so blessed to have her.
