Thread is open again, that's a good thing.

Congrats on the plane Chris. Mike and I were scheming all the way home on how we were going to buy one and get it flying.

Greetings from sunny (OK, rainy) Florida. Glad to see the thread open again. Awesome score on the 104, Chris! I was hoping to make it out over the weekend but work/travel intervened, sorry I missed y'all.. That said, I'm taking next week off so I can actually be home a few days. I'll be keeping retiree hours so maybe I'll see some guerrillas out at TT some day?

When you pick a day let us know. I try to go once or twice a week.

I'm counting on it! Let's see how the weather looks but Tuesday is a likely candidate for me.

* HanD SurgerY uPdate ! *

I had a BIG scare last night.....when I pulled the blanket over, I 'forgot' about the hand/stitches and it sure did let me know I was 'mistreating' iT ! It felt like I had dipped iT in molten steel !
First thought was....I pulled the tendons out through the stitches ! Second thought was....the stitches pulled apart !
So, I 'immoblized' enough that I was finally able to faLL sLEEp @ 1:00 a.m. When I woke, it wasn't bothersoome ! I was abit apprehensive though when it came time to see my doc. When he came in to see me, I told him of my concern. He explained that in fact, the tendons can 'catch' on the severed ligiment, but if the pain had stopped, then there shouldn't be any damage.
He asked me to use my brace for 2-3 weeks and exercise my fingers 5-10 minutes, 3-4 times a day. He said.....do NOT use a jackhammer...I said, no worries !
At the end of the day, I'm relieved AND hApPy with how my hand feels NOW !! Oh, and the bruising is 'normal'

(temporary 3m steri strips)
