Hello everybody...

Stopped in to say hello. Update: Wound is sealed and healing so far. Hopefully the picc line comes out this Friday? They are worried about the sed rate being 44. I disagree after being cut open so many times since last May... Especially that I had 2 surgeries within 10 days 5 weeks ago. Time will tell! Hope everyone is doing good!

Took the drone up..t got attacked by a swarm of hornets... Bug guts all over the place.. Not fun to clean!

Great news! @Fractured
Glad to hear you had some fun with the drone. Too bad it had to turn into a cleaning project after the fun.
I hope you're right with your hunch on the sed rate.
Keep in touch and have a nice Sunday!

Pleased to hear you are healing. My Surgeon said he expected levels to be up after surgery and 44 is not THAT high! Keep your positive head on and enjoy that drone and your Sunday.

Hi @Fractured
For real? Did you run into the hornet nest or you were just in their territory?
Never thought about that possibility.

Glad it wasn't you.
We have red wasps en masse around here and you Do Not want to get them riled up. Stings are like hot pokers in your flesh.
I too hope high sed rate is caused by the surgery trauma.
Hope you're Sunday is Happy

@Celle OOOpsie. Sorry! Thank you!

@Layla Thank you.. It seems to be going in the right direction

@Mojo333 Yo Mojo... Nope I ran into them at about 100 feet with the drone. They dive bombed with me to about 20 feet and I watch from about 30 feet away and they got sliced and diced. I agree on the Sed Rate Trauma!!! Sunday will be a happy one. My old partner Teresa is in town with a bunch of girls. She is only 45 mins away in Scottsdale. She is coming for a visit. She just retired from CPD!

@Fit4Family Thank you for the kind words and positive thoughts... Welcome to the forum. We LOVE Arizona!!

@clodaghcov LOL Run... Heck I can barely walk on both legs. I can tip toe with the left leg using the walker. I'm hoping to get the special shoe this week!

Ciao

This made me laugh - but probably not funny for you. That must have required quite a deep clean!

Thanks for checking in - you are in our thoughts.

Better safe than sorry...but sorry you have to be subjected to it.:sigh:

Just noticed your signature...portraying your hip history...is infinitely longer than your update.
Hope you and Mrs. Fractured are in good shape for the shape you're in.

Stay strong...you have lots of us humble supporters on your side.:ok:
