Good news for people who like bad news.

I have been putting off a trip to the doc since I took a tumble back in August. I of course am referring to the post of August 27 where I describe the event in great detail. Feel free to reread the post and get yourselves back up to speed, but I digress.... I had Dr. Andruss check out my wrist first as it has been getting worse. The x-rays looked good so he told me to cowboy up, the bone that looked a little cracked was on it's way to healing and it would feel better when it stopped hurting.
We then moved on to the knee. The knee that he himself had rebuilt in 01', he gave it a couple of quick tugs and said the four words that crushed my soul, "your ACL is blown." He followed that jem up with "when do you want to have surgery to repair it?" So I guess I have been riding my bike all over this state with a knee that is held in place with duct tape, chewing gum and inertia.
I have decided on November 14Th we will do the cutting and I am looking forward to 4 weeks of crutches and 6 weeks of rehab like I look forward to doing a nickel at Chino. For those of you who don't get that joke it means I am loathe to begin the whole process.

Donations are being accepted to help my family cope at Deseret First Credit Union and at 7-11 retailers near you.

At 7-11? Really? Didn't know we had those around here. However, I AM thinking about putting a container with your picture and sad story on the Maverick counter. Think anybody will bite?
