Riding bicycle and climbing mountains to meet and interview fellow survivors!
Sharing our stories to give hope and inspire others.
Well it's been a few weeks and we are still moving. I had to take the last few days to rest. The last two weeks have really kicked my butt into shape. It may take the rest of the month to finish the move. It's been hell trying to move with this broken collarbone. It kept getting really sore and bruised the first week, but my insurance finally approved the bone simulator. I know this ultrasound device is working. I have not had any fresh bruising since I started using it. The bone develop an odd ache, not a major pain, but I could feel it. Almost like a shock. In my mind it felt like the new bone fibers were being stretched and pulled part as they tried to knit together.
I need to get back to work moving today. Hopefully the bone will stay together. After three months of this I'm done. Between the operation to cut the nerve in my tongue and and breaking this bone I'm sick of feeling broken.
I'm planning to climb Mt. St. Helens sometime in the next few weeks. I really need an Epic Adventure this year. I may be able to get away for a week or two for a short one to two week ride sometime in the next month or two. I will just set off from Portland and ride as far as I can and then catch a ride home. I really enjoy being on the road. I'm not afraid to talk to people and don't get bothered by people staring. I just ride hard and enjoy the day. I'm in pain all day so I might as well be in pain from riding my bike. That pain feels better.
Don't give up on me! I will be Epic Again soon!
