Back to the hospital?

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.

Back to the hospital?

Postby Hikin Mike » Wed Jul 05, 2006 9:22 am

I've been having more issues with my knee bleeding again. I've got an appointment on Thursday to see my surgeon at Stanford. Not sure if I'll be admitted to the hospital or sent home.

I could use all the prayers you can send. I'll try and keep you posted as I can.

Mike, my heart goes out to you and your family. This has certainly been an ordeal that has challenged every aspect of your life; I can't even imagine what all you've been through. I wish there was some way to help, but please know that you and your recovery are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mike,
I wish you well. Don't give up, it can only get better. My thoughts are with you.

Good luck tomorrow, Mike! :( Hope they can figure out what's going on.

I can only echo what has already been said; Good Ludk today!

Hang in there every day is one day closer to being your old self and getting out and about in the Sierra. I almost said being back to normal, but are any of us who hang out here normal? :D

Man, and I was bitching about just finally getting over a mono-like virus I've had for 6 months. It's nothing compared to what you're going through. Hang in there, Mike.
