-10F Chill Factor
It is actually supposed to be above freezing tomorrow, great paddling conditions. I, however, will be at the hospital having a proceedure and spending the rest of the weekend lying around. Bummer. Hopefully, I will make it to coffee Sunday morning.
Enjoy your weekend and...
Paddle safe...

Having had the "proceedure" a couple of times, you won't be leaving the house on Sunday! Trust me, it will take you awhile to get out of bed and downstairs. Sunday will be a day for soft clothes all day, no sudden movements. "Milk" it a bit and have others wait on you--it's your one chance! Go for it--get all you can !!! By the way, you won't be paddling until January sometime, could be February before you dip your paddle again.

I was kind of hoping that Sunday morning an ambulance with two strong guys would appear on my drive way. I would be carried out and driven to the coffee shop, etc, etc.

I'm sure that could be arranged--would your insurance cover such medical necessity? If so, I'm sure I could arrange it, even though I'm off at 2400 hrs Saturday night, I'd be willing to go back in to work for such medical necessities--will you pay for the coffee too?

Get your 'script pad out . . .

When he's not able to kayak for 4 to 6 weeks, he's going to be hard to live with--poor Lady Linda!

Well at least it's not a proceeedure. I've heard those are especially uncomfortable.

I have come to the wrong place for sympathy :o(

Do I dare ask... what is a "Proceedure"? $ to 6 weeks, loose fitting clothing, no coffee no paddling... NO sympathy!

Yikes !!! Hang in there Doc!!

A procedure is anything done to the body. Heart surgery would be a biggy. Taking out a sliver would be a minor procedure. I am having an inguinal hernia repair in a few hours. Bet people won't even recognize me afterwards.

hope your proceedure proceeds perfectly and your recovery is speedy.

Thanks. The kayak group brought goodies over, I brewed some beans and we had a great visit. Not too much pain, but it will be a few days before I am comfortable. I am happy all went well.
