Your broken pelvic remind me of broken fairings for some reason, also it's amazing how they just put screws into people. It's a freaking screw, how primal our medical system is amazing. Also happy you shared your story and hope you have a quick recovery.
If you have a minute check out the benefits of food grade Hydrogen Peroxide.

Wow! Never thought of that! That makes me just a little happier to have the appearance of moto parts inside me, not just my heart!

...of course if they would have asked I would have preferred a 520 conversion.

Rob, I hope you have as close to a complete recovery as humanly possible.
it's hard to imagine the pain you have been enduring and the frustration as well.

I'm glad you have a loving lady friend to take care of you, no doubt you know that!

Thought maybe I should post a new pic. This was taken last week. I had some x-rays done today and the radiologist says that there is no movement of my repairs. Everything seems to be holding in place!
I got a 4 wheel walker and took a few steps. Very weird after not being perpendicular for five months.
I can smell the progress from here.......if it just weren't for the pain!
Thanks to all for the continued kind words and thoughts.
Sorry to the racers who were freaked out by my presence at the track at Round 5.
Not my intention and I thank you all for the amazing entertainment!!!

Love the BARF!!!!!

Great to hear, Rob!!

Physical therapy/rehab can be a bitch, but so rewarding when accomplishments are made.

Went to the gym today and did some very light stuff with high repetitions. Only one set.
Then sat in the sauna for a long time.
I have never, ever felt so wimpy.
Here I am at the gym:


Just kidding! Now you can get an idea why the wimpy feeling bugs me so much. This picture was just over two years ago and before I decided to do cardio only to get "slim" for racing.

Just happy to give a positive update....

Last weekend I attended the 25th Anniversary Reunion for the commissioning of the USS Bunker Hill CG-52. I had only started walking, hobbling along really, on crutches the week before. I was excited to see my former shipmates and thought I could handle using crutches all weekend. Well, my GF told me so, and she was right. No way I was going to make it all on crutches alone. Within 24 hours I had the hotel concierge find a mobility scooter to rent for my stay.
The reunion banquet was awesome and seeing all those guys was priceless.
I finally got a chance to thank my former skipper for all he taught me about leadership. The former Captain and now Vice Admiral (Ret.) Philip Quast looked great and seemed just as excited to see all of us as we were him.

The next day I stuck to the crutches and was able to board the ship and see my old steel stomping grounds. It was unreal that this 25 year old warship can look as good as she does. The current crew are to be commended for keeping her strong!
Twenty five years is well beyond a warships life expectancy and to still be relevant after all these years is quite an accomplishment.
I had my comrades prop me up for a few shots. Here I am with some of my fellow plank owners and a current crew member.


A view of her from the bay aboard my friend's Bertram 38.

Thought some of you might get a kick out of this photo I recently found. This is 1986 and I think I was about 23 years old, if you can believe it.

Thanks to all of you for following my story.
It looks as if I will walk again! Albeit with a slight limp.
