Re: Tenative Trail Schedule

I am a bit over weight but the real problem is that I have a bad case of diabetes brought on by a pituitary surgery a couple of decades ago that actually caused the weight gain. So I am having a specialized form of bariatric surgery where they remove about 6 feet of my small intestine and replumb a bunch of stuff. It should pretty much cure my diabetes before it causes any more damage.

I will also be getting an adominal hernia repaired that was caused by an accident a few months ago. I was standing on a stool, leaning over the radiator on my wifes car working on the back of the engine, when the stool shot out. The hook that holds the hood closed sticks up about 3 inches and I basically impaled myself on it about an inch above my navel. Talk about hurting

Not really looking forward to the process, but looking forward to the result.

Re: Tenative Trail Schedule

I had my gall bladder removed back in may, but it was pretty wimpy compared to what you're going to have. I suspect you'll be out of commission for a couple weeks. Good luck, see you next summer at CO Fest.

Re: Tenative Trail Schedule

I've gotten a giant chunk of my intestine removed. While i hope it all pans out well be sure to take care of what you eat. definitely.changes how your stomach reacts to stuff.

I'm looking forward to your procedure involving your proctologist and neurosurgeon.

Mine were only one week apart. No NSAIDS for 10 days. I was one sore puppy.

Re: Tenative Trail Schedule

You should set an 'official' time for the raffle so everyone knows when they need to be there by.

Re: Tenative Trail Schedule

The official time for the raffle is the same as it always is, after the group dinner.
