Schnappi, I'm so sorry to read this. How scary!

So glad you're generally ok and have tons of support....and your decision to hang it up is completely understandable.

Take care, glad you're on the mend, and thanks for the ATGATT photo reminder. The Power Rangers are onto something with the suits for sure.

Best to you!

Thanks all- back home and on the mend. The shoulder is going to take its time, ribs & lung are doing good

A good friend helped me get the bike out of impound- it only spent a week there, and some AA friends unloaded it for me- so its home too.

This experience has been a profound lesson in the effects of working the program; one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time, gratitude, staying in the moment and some form of spiritual practice helped me turn the ordeal more into practice than suffering; the dark heavily drugged and painful nights in the ICU were a trial. Sometimes self care meant just being respectful and grateful to the nurses because I couldn't do anything else, other times it mean digging deep into the pain and getting up to walk the ward and joke around with the physical therapy folks. I quit the narcotics as soon as the ICU released me which meant nights grilled by pain and not much to control it- prayer to embrace everything just as it is and to know it deeply was a rock to stand on. Alanon put the tools in my hands, without that practice to fall back on this would have been torture.

So my father's day gift is to be home with the wife and daughter, up and (carefully) moving around, see my AA/Alanon peeps and walk in and out of meetings on my own two feet, and I can work, as per the 7th tradition
