Off to yet another adventure...

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.

Off to yet another adventure...

Going back in to the hospital on Friday for the 4th operation on my right knee since February. It still hasn't healed properly and has started to drain again. They should install a zipper this time! :angry:

I'll try and keep you all posted...

How about velcro instead of a zipper?

On the serious side, sorry to hear that news Mike. Keep your chin up, and put me on the list of those pulling for you!

I am keeping you in my prayers and wishing for the best.

Thanks!

Just found out that the surgery is 11:30 AM and I should be there until Wednesday. I don't think I'll be any less mobile than I am now, but I will have two wounds to deal with. The extra wound is from a skin graft they plan on doing, so I don't know when I'll be back online.

Good luck, Mike! Hope this one works!
