Subject: BS: Raptor returns home today!

Date: 12 Jul 11 - 10:46 AM

My friend David is coming home today from the Rehab hospital! Here's the latest update from Julie, his fiance:

Monday 2230h:



What's on my mind? That's what Facebook is asking me. Hmmm. I went in to work today, cleaned out my desk, enjoyed a wonderful potluck Mexican lunch and said goodbye to the best coworkers anyone could ever dream of having. Besides being incredibly caring, competent professionals, they have become my friends and family over the past 3 1/2 years. Then I enjoyed wonderful Thai food and talked nonstop with Karen Hooper for 3 hours. She was my very first Canadian friend who has faithfully loved me for 25 years. Now I am home packing up my clothes and cookbooks so tomorrow I can go to my new home in Utopia to be with the man I love with all my heart. Finally. We have been waiting for so long. And the tragedy, miracles, tears, and blessings of the last 9 1/2 weeks have brought a new depth of love and strength to our relationship. We are so ready to be home together. So, what's on my mind? Sadness, joy, loss, anticipation, endings, beginnings. But over all that, I feel blessed and loved by you all. We're starting a new chapter. I'll keep you posted . .

This is really great. David's a dear friend, like a brother to me. He's been lucky to even survive what happened. I hope to see him playing the big Guild guitar again soon, feeding the birds and squirrels, and keeping Bowie (his frantic little dog) entertained.

He's doing quite well, has regained muscle mass, but is still having difficulties with his left knee. We've been getting together about once a week, and getting out to some musical events. He and Julie are married now, remodeling their house, and are happy and doing well. There's a hot tub in the back (outside) and we go out there sometimes in the evening, soak in the hot water, and watch the stars.

I'll let David elaborate from there (if he spots this thread).

Ok update:I'm physically recovering at an alarming rate and go to see the Orthopedic surgeon tomorrow to see weather I can have the knee surgery that will lay me up for another six months. My knee was shattered with my ACL gone my MCL severally ripped and my meniscus shattered with several pieces floating around inside that need to be removed. But on top of all that I hace a bone growth on the side of my knee that is a result of the head injury called Ossification when a tiny bit of calcium develops when a head injury happens (Mine is bigger than my kneecap) indicating a big deal.
That's the physical end of it.

They are just recently assessing the brain injury end of it all Brain injury isn't as easy to spot as you don't lose your intellect it just shows up in different ways such as tiredness after thinking, increased frustration when dealing with organization matters, Word finding problems, etc…

I'm not back to work yet and am told that It might be a long while before I can go back

I go to Physiotherapy three times a week Massage therapy twice a week have occupational therapy once in a while and that will increase after they sort a few things out. I have now a home gym with workout bench and weights and a stationary bike that I work on at home when I'm not going to physio.
