So after 4+ months on crutches and lots and lots of rehab (which I am still in) I am finally off crutches!! I'm swingin' the pimp cane for now and hopefully will be rid of that as well within a week or so. It's still slow going, but being able to carry my dinner into the living room and shower standing up again is a HUGE step forward:laughing

I've still got a ways to go to be all the way back, but walking again is just amazing. The shit you take for granted......

Sooo, as part of this I would like to again personally thank everyone on this board for their generosity and all the help and kind words offered to me through this whole process. You would just not beleive what wonderful people (some of you:laughing) are part of this board until you find yourself in real need. Everyone that called, PM'd, stopped by, brought me books, DVD's, video games and even BOUGHT ME GROCERIES!!! ...shit I even was lead to my wonderful therapists by a board member:D ...I'll not forget what you blokes did for me.:cheers

I'd like to extend my utmost respect and gratitude specifically to G2G, Vcook, df4iguy, Chills, Jrock, Jimzx9r, evltwinn, Meech, Oddy, Redduck, Grasshopper, Jimm, Devil Dog, K2, Ryan, Dirtbiker, Bug, Rob, Dushan, Dano, Team Serpent, Mopar and Gconsier for the time taken on a personal level to help me out so much. I simply cannot thank you fellas enough for everything! If I missed anyone I can assure you it was only a momentary lapse...

Here's to the assholes on this board:cheers
