Man...
Glad you are Allright.
Pretty scary for a older guy.
Take it easy and relax as best as you can.
Look forward to your next rocket postings.

I still think the platform is a money pit and better modern designs should be used instead of reworked old tech.

Checked in with my local Doc. He scheduled me for an MRI to see what's going on in there. Updates as they occur.

Enjoying some brown medicine right now.

While your on the MRI table, have them check your head as well.

A lot of people, my father included, had lingering issues from a fall in the bathroom, including strokes.

I wouldn't want that to happen to you.

Good luck and take care.

They did a CT scan of my head at the Mayo. They said my brain wasn't any more damaged than beforehand. (Their joke.)

Before I forget...Sincere thanks for all the good wishes, folks.

Over the past week, I had an adventure.

Drove to Phoenix to spend time with daughter and family. Came down with Covid (finally, after staying clean for two years) and then a severe episode of sciatica. The latter was so excruciating that on Sunday morning, I passed out in the bathroom, toppling over backward and hitting my head on the tile floor. I was completely unable to move and had Claudia and the VRBO landlord call an ambulance. I was taken -in agony- to the Mayo Clinic, where they took a head CT, chest X-rays, and hip X-rays. That's where I learned that I had not only Covid, but hip arthritis plus sciatica.

I never thought I would utter the sentence "I've fallen and I can't get up" but that's exactly what I said to the ambulance tech. He thought that was proof that I was out of it, and he was likely right.

Anyway, after resting for a day, Claudia and I managed to drive back home, arriving just a while ago. I am now Mr Gimpy, hobbling around with a cane and gobbling Tylenol like it was Halloween candy. Will see the local Doc as soon as I can and see what lies ahead.

We'll never know who gave what to whom, because our daughter was feeling bad when we arrived, but now all five of us have Covid. My case was no worse than several winter coughs I've had in the past, but it is true that some things do taste weird now. Hoping that Claudia's case is also mild, as she is now in only her third day of it and she managed to drive the whole way home.
Throw in some Benadryl to help you sleep and it put the kabosh on my last episode of Covid in May. I got it the first time 3 years ago. I was down for 12 days but when I started using the Benadryl to help me sleep it cut the fever and helped with the headache. This was before the official start of covid so I was on my own to figure it out. For the sciatica I suggest some stretching. I have nothing for the hip arthritis. Get well soon.

Must be all those un-synced decibels doing idiot circles in the mixmaster over the HCM trail - so bored out your gourd, you were praying for a Praire Fire.

Smilin' at that.

Just did 20 minutes of stretches after waking up totally locked up. Have found that the most excruciating thing is the toilet seat - with all my weight on my hip bones. Can hardly sit there long enough in that pain to achieve "movement".

It is snowing this morning, and I laughed at the idea of me running the snow blower. City ordnance be damned. It can just melt. Gonna try a shower in a bit and then put on my "sick suit" which is a heavy workout pant and hoodie. It's my "woobie". Sooooo glad we put in a walk-in shower.

Alright, Rock.

That's enough whining.

Time to go golf.

Will throw in with the sentiments of others and hope you feel better soon.

I am curious after your covid diagnosis- what did they do to treat it - and were you vaccinated? I just wonder if things had gotten better in hospitals in that regard. Am sure glad you are out of there.
