I'm back (sort of)

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

I'm back (sort of)

Postby Hikin Mike » Fri Jan 12, 2007 7:50 pm

I'm back! My father-in-law just moved the computer in the othe room so I can get in there.

Unfortonately the doctor had to remove my right knee (October) for now. Once I get 100% better I should get another good knee again. Right now I can't walk...just a wheellchair. Then two days later I got a mild Stroke. It took a few days to remember my family's names again. I'm better than a was, but I still have a tough time speaking and this is the first time I've tried to type. It's a tough time than I thought.

As you can see, I have a long way to go until I'm 100% better again.

Thanks for everyone!

Thinking of you, read of your plight over on TT from one of your buddies.
Piece of cake.

Thank you everybody! I'd like to respond to everyone, but it takes too much for me right now. It took my five minutes yesterday to sound out "wheelchair" so I could type it.

Can't even go to Yosemite right now, but I can at least use the computer.

Thanks again!
