I want to start by saying a massive thanks to everyone who came to the anzac day ride and helped with the prizes and organising (esp. you scheff â€“ and all those who I donâ€™t know by name) â€“ Iâ€™m so blown away by the generosity and kindness shown by the netrider community. Well itâ€™s been 6 weeks and time for some news, good and not so goodâ€¦ The good news is Iâ€™m out of the neck brace at last! The not so good news is my knee isnâ€™t bending as well as the doctors would like, so Iâ€™m back at the Alfred next Monday for a general anaesthetic while they â€˜mobiliseâ€™ my knee â€“ then two days with a spinal drip to block the nerves while Iâ€™m on a machine that moves the knee through itâ€™s range of motion. So Iâ€™m a bit apprehensive about getting poked with needles again, but at the mo I donâ€™t have enough bending to ride a sports bike so itâ€™s got to be done! (getting back on the road on a scooter just doesnâ€™t appeal) Both arms are still non-weight bearing (forecast is 4 months before I can use the left arm properly), so Iâ€™ll be walking before I can pick up a bottle of wine Means posting hasnâ€™t been easy, slowly getting better at typing in the arm brace tho, so I hope to be able to do more than just read the forumsâ€¦ Iâ€™ve also escaped for weekend leave this week, dropped in at A1 in Brighton on the way home, ran into Luke (who did the stunts on the anzac day ride), had a chance to check out some bikes and gear (still in the chair so wasnâ€™t able to sit on anything yetâ€¦ :sigh: ) Finally I just wanted to thank everyone again for helping me get online with my lappie â€“ what an amazing bunch you netriders are!
