The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

The short version of the last few days is as follows-

The surgery went really well. My ACL was repaired, the MCL had healed itself, and while my surgeon was in mucking about in my kneebow, he cleaned up the meniscus. Plus, when all was said and done and I was regaining consciousness in the recovery room, I had a couple hours to talk with my nurse whose name was Alana, was very pretty, and who also happened to be a cyclist.

None of that sucked.

So since then, I’ve been posted up on the sofa swimming through an impressive fog of pain killers and consistently interupted thoughts. I’m as green as they come in regard to opiates, (it took me five attempts to even spell the word ‘opiates‘ correctly before I had to ask the Googles.) This is a brand new bag to me, and as I said somewhere else on the internets recently, “I totally understand why people get addicted to painkillers now. They are fucking awesome.

Please do me the solid and allow me to get through the next day or two to clear my head, and I promise we’ll pick up right where we left off with our two wheeled and beer fueled shenanigans.

Or rather your two wheeled and beer fueled shenanigans.

From my corner, for the time being, I’m so wrecked I can’t even figure out which way to point my business finger.

    I said the same thing about pain meds after double hernia surgery. I liked them a little too much, so I flushed them.
    Heal up!

    I rode the crap out of my bmx this weekend, because you reminded me of where I was 3 years ago and how far I’ve come since then. Your words and Cranpa’s videos unwittingly helped me through probably my darkest time. Peace and healing, dude. Errbody got they own kinda ‘inspiration’.

    Opiates don’t taste as good as beer. Heal up and take good care –Beth

    The street value of that oxy is $1 per milligram… so your surgery can pay for itself!

    Now would be a great time to experiment with Laudanum.

    can’t wait until the posts come once you figure out how lortab and coffee interact. F-O-C-U-S.

    Heal up soon! Take it from me, DO NOT try to get off the pain meds cold turkey. When I was recovering from kidney surgery I got so tired of being constipated I tried to quit the oxycodone too soon. Boy was that a bad idea. I too see why people get addicted to this stuff, because besides being awesome, the withdrawal is a bitch and a half. Taper, bro, taper.

    One day at a time! Seems like a good chance to experience the record collection at a new level.
