Get well man, that bone looks like a good dog treat.
Absolutely keep the parts! When my son broke his clavicle, he kept the plate; not only used it for a keyfob, but would play slide with it, too.
Man, you've had a rough ride! Hopefully, this time will put you back together better than the 20 Million Dollar Man (Interest and Inflation adjusted) LOL.
Seriously, you deserve to be done with that trauma and enjoy the rest of your long and eventful days driving that 911 in circles! Glad your ES1150 days are over. That could start the whole thing up again!
Get better and go have as much fun as insanely possible! Hopefully, you're surrounded with a good support network! (Cat and Daughter) And we're here too!
Here's to your total success!!!! Hear Hear!
Oh yeah, a little craftsmanship and you'll have a nice gear shifter knob too! LOL
Geez. I've got one of those too. (two actually.) Left in '01, right in '04.
So far so good I suppose.
Best of luck with your recovery.
depending on the type of hardware, I hope you're getting
your blood levels checked
It's something I'll be bringing up.
thanks for all the support guys !!
I'm walking short distances without a cane, can drive sparingly,......left foot braking
pain / swelling is subsiding, all in all I'm slightly ahead of schedule
my sleep has improved
I'm glad I did this in the dead of winter, missed 8 consecutive
days of snow and cold
I’m glad y’all are up and around,damn painful that is.Brother,heal well....take it easy,don’t get ahead of yourself.
Thanks for bucket pics,man!! I’m now breaking out a strip steak for lunch
well, the new 'parts' are seating nicely
so after getting a clean bill of health, I get home after
a nice lunch, it had been 6+ weeks since I'd been out to
one of my favorite haunts
the bill came,...man I could have shit a Miata
originally ballparked this in the low 60's
still haven't received the anesthesiologist's bill or the
upscale skilled care facility ---18 days + therapists and
thankfully, I'm fully insured
let this be an indicator to anyone who is uninsured or underinsured, just how fast you can be wiped out
by a major medical event
IN MY OPINION, this should have been covered by the
prosthesis manufacturer, maybe BC/BS will subrogate
Man that looks purdy! Especially if it does the job like it's supposed to, longer than you're even here!
And I agree..... The failed manufacturer should foot the bill! And also cover YOUR huge amount of additional pain and suffering. Ultimately, if enough fail, there will be a class action suit and hopefully will be $hitting something better than a Miata.
Keep up the good work and then get through the shoulder and hopefully a long boring amount of smooth sailing afterward!
maybe you should be lawyering up.pain and suffering and all that crap.many people would be devastated by that bill,not to mention time out of work.
Can I have your car?
Hope ya feel better soon
thanks for the well wishes
pain is manageable, being sick is worse
Damn! I'm glad you're on the mend. You're sounding more "stoic" than I would be, I don't handle pain well at all.
Here's to a continued speedy and uneventful recovery.
Here's to a speedy recovery!
If i was a critic i'd say the presentation or Bowling in your case by the hospital staff of the cupcake to be quite exquisite, the juxtaposition of the bone and all that chrome, slightly askew at the bottom... sublime.
Speedy and easy recovery to you.
holy cow that's a big bill man, much larger than I would have guessed, glee its healing well
wow, that's quite an outpouring of compassion you guys
Thanks So Much,..I'm tearing up a bit
I did'nt want to disclose this till after I was on the mend, stay focused and do the work
as of today I'm walking unaided, but will bring the cane with for a few weeks
I'll post part of a message I sent to another member regarding product liability
and the irony of these situ's
the funny thing is, while I was getting ready for the surgery I casually phoned my
personal injury atty to tell him that my hip was being replaced....we talk yearly
.....like a shark, he smelled 'blood in the water'
He looked into recalls and stuff associated with the manufacturer and that generation of appliances
If I'd have to have had this done some 4 years earlier, it's likely I'd have been paid
from funds that manufacturers put aside, like a bond
they 'pay off' certain patients to avoid costly litigation and bad publicity
without a recall, the patient has very little if any recourse
He did find that the manufacturer had hundreds of payouts for devices that by their
own admission did not perform as expected,..ie; prior to 15 years
the amount ? ----- over $200k + they were absorbing most of the medical costs
