Well then, perhaps an update is in order.

I'm sitting up taking nourishment.

On a very regular basis, I might add.

My recovery is coming along at a really nice speed. I got out of the hospitals / rehab units on
July 21st. Was still generally weak from having been cut on and what-not, but am in physical therapy at the local hospital on a weekly basis now.

Not back to work yet. The disability check shows up every week though, so I'm good with that.
Haven't been on the bike since I had the aneurysm exploded on me in May, but I'm getting the itch so 'll probably at least take it up to the gas station and top it up with some gas and Sta-Bil before winter hits Ohio.

T'was the grace of God and the gazillion prayers that people said for me that has pulled me through so far.

Hello Tim, I'm a new guy on the block here but have been riding motorcycles since 1947. My newest bike is a K1200RS. So far I'm getting along fine with it. Now then, my prayers are headed your way for a full and complete recovery. Happy Fathers Day to you and may you have blessings now and eternally

Got an update for allya'll

Got notice in the mail yesterday that I've been approved for Social ecurity Disabiity insurance.

So, there's money coming in every month

Can't beat that.

Sucking on the government teat.

things are progressing nicely, still no sensation in my left hand yet.. other than hot and cold.
Don't know if I'll be able to ride again, however I got approval to driv and that's a fine start.

Glad you are coming along!
My wife was grounded due to medical conditions for a while and you never know how much you miss driving until you can't do it.

Re:

Hey Tim, hope you're recovered very well.
You're not sucking if you've paid in for years. You're only getting a portion of your investment back.
Sucking on the Govt is those who have never left Uncle Sam's Farm!
Hope all is well. Dickey
