The next day I had an appointment with the surgeon. I walked in looking like I had stepped in front of a freight train all bandaged up. I did a ot of damage to the front side of my elbow (whatever you call that). He looked at me and started to lecture and I stopped him and said, "I did not pick up anything heavier than a coke can," He was laughing so hard he could barely tell the nurse to take the staples out.

ROTFLMBO@THAT I nearly wrecked my crane laughing so hardď

When I screw up I tend to do it big time.

Been up scooping moldy corn to the center of the corn bin, so came in to rest.  I've read through all 30 pages of this thread, and your support through all my medical issues almost brought tears to my eyes.

  It has been a very difficult time, and is still painful at times after 8 weeks and 2 days, but still hoping to return to normal some day...but it's not here yet by a long shot.  Sleep is difficult, but not having a morning alarm going off helps, as I can sleep later if need be.  The financial issues weigh on me as much as the physical issues do, and really much harder to deal with being I'm limited as to what I can do physically.  Money will be running short by year's end, but I hope to sell some equipment I won't need anymore after the 1st of the year, so that should get me through a while.  Hoping by next spring to be feeling more like my old self & getting a new source of income going.  The sale of springer heifers will only hold me for so long, so I must get something rolling.

  I see my surgeon on August 6th, so I'll see if he thinks I'm where I should be at this point.

Again, many many thanks for your support.  It truly helps & is much appreciated.  Long road to travel yet, but I'm on the right side of the tracks at least.    I think my mental road is my toughest one to travel at this point.

You thank us for support, thoughts and prayer. When I think of what you do for these folks, what you mean to the forum and, well, who you are as a person, well, all I can say is, how can we not? Stay strong my friend. There are many fields to be worked in your future.

Daniel I know we don't talk much personally but I think of you guys as an extended family. I'm very happy to hear you are doing better. Progress can be slow but if I've learned anything in life you always keep pushing!

You've had many issues in the last six months that have changed everything around. It's hard to overcome so many changes, but I believe you are the man to make it happen!
