      That all sounds remarkably unpleasant...

      I'm out for this trip. I need to get my truck tuned (running lean after all the mods) before taking it on a serious trip. Probably January if we do one.

      Wow! And I thought cataract surgery was a pain.
      You'll be fine. Just remember the no stress rule after

      What's that? No stress after the procedure? That may be more difficult than you could imagine about now. :(

      Good luck to ya rick. Hope all goes well and for a speedy recovery.

      It's looking like this may be a bust run, so I may be out too, depending who all is planning on still making it out. I am also being optimistic that my truck will be completed by then too...

      I'll likely be in Glamis for thanksgiving and have another event on the 18th. December looks clear though! lol

      Brian, when you get yours back up, we should do a day trip out to corral canyon. I'd love to hit up Sidewinder, Bronco's Peak, and Gunslinger.

      All the worries are before the surgery after its done just remain calm and go with the flow not lifting anything heavier than a water glass! It's tough but you'll get through it just fine! Remember rest and sleep are your new best friends, for a few days anyway!

      I'm fine with a reschedule.. I'm a maybe right now as I have an interview for a new job (same job, different company) on Tuesday. That means things could change (schedule and vacation time etc).

      Sounds like this is going to work out better for everyone. I have not had time to work on JP, little alone still unpack half my garage still from our move in May.

      Spent my day adding stone ledger to my fireplace.


      I feel bad for Tom however because I know he was going to come down.

      Thanksgiving is definitely possibly

      Life isn't cooperating too well right now.

      Instead of me going in for eye surgery on Thursday, Char just checked herself into the hospital this afternoon with acute renal failure. She just learned about it yesterday and was going to put off going to the hospital until after my surgery.

      Today I went for my pre-op appointment and I brought Char's chart from the kidney doctor. I told my eye surgeon that my wife postponed going into the hospital because of my surgery, and I wanted him to look at her chart to determine who needed treatment first. As soon as he looked at her numbers he asked if she was on dialysis. I replied no, he said get her to the hospital asap, this is life threatening, your eye surgery can wait another week...

      Well, Char is out of the hospital, she got out the same night she went in. They ran blood tests and they all came back negative. No idea why the previous blood tests were so bad. She needs to get in with her kidney doctor to find out what's happening.

      That means my surgery is back on for today. We are leaving in about 30 minutes... I'll let you all know how it went as soon as I can.

      Success... at least as far as making it through the surgery ;) I have three appointments this month to check on the progress of the operation. Hopefully the pressure will be down to where the doc wants it.

      Glad to hear it might have just been some bad test results. Hope all goes well on your end too!

      Just an FYI. My recovery is going well. My vision is almost completely back to normal, but I still can't focus on anything for too long without a great deal of discomfort. I drove to my parents place in Phoenix which is just an hour from here, the drive home a couple hours later was almost unbearable. It seems to be the eye muscles which are strained, but it could be from the difference in strength between the two eyes which is partly caused by the steroidal eye drop I have to take for another two weeks. They say I will most likely need a new lens prescription for my right eye once the healing is complete. Two more visits with the eye doc to go...
