Damn gwk. Rest up, heal up, take care of yourself. I had an umbilical hernia, but it wasn't nearly as bad as yours sounds.

That was on a Saturday and while I was tender I never gave it much thought. Then the following Tuesday morning I coughed and my colon came out just to the right of my right testicle as big as my doubled fist! Talk about painful and shocking!

The MRI showed I had tears on the left as well so I now look like I had a cesarean! Got a row of staples so it looks like a railroad track right above my third member.

They put a mesh reinforcement in but said I should limit myself to 50# for the rest of my life - - - 12 ounces for the next two weeks, 10# for 5 weeks after that.

It is a pain getting old! But I guess there are many worse things! I hated the thought of the pain meds but I guess I will need at least something for a while. Staples out next Wednesday.

One thing about it the doctors and nursing staff at the Fort Wayne VA Hospital are top notch!

I’m ready to stop hurting!
Feel better man! That is some scary stuff.

12oz eh? At least you can have a beer, better go with the can though; those bottles and mugs are heavy

Makes a man feel good to know people care about him!

Nothing like being on open water bright and early to 30mph winds and 40 degrees outside winterizing a dang boat .
Now I am the first to rock out in thee biggest pos car or truck and i dont much car for the junk they call suvs and trucks these days but damn it ....
Seat heaters in my tahoe are a God send . HOW DID WE SURVIVE ? And why has no one thought to put electric heat in a car that would work until the motor got warm ?????!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!
Finished up yesterday 40 miles out in the boonies up by kerr lake , the boat was under some shelters at a old home stead with the barns and homes falling in .
Now I love to look through stuff like that . I walk over to the house not expecting to see much then i see this gem



If it were a Harley it would have gotten shoved in the back of the tahoe .
Would not have thought twice about it . Tags went out in 1980 ..... just sayin

I know I know . i did call about it and my thoughts were verified , it belongs to some ceo of a big bank way out of town and he is a crazy old coot that sells nothing . I knew something was up since it had been there that whole time , out in the woods , out in the middle of no where . I felt like I was in someones sights the whole time i was there .
I have learned in life that there are someplaces you just dont go around or mess with .
Like finding a gold bar in the middle of the mall during christmas .........
There is a reason no one has gotten it yet
