october 5th, 2007





well, i will have to say that so far 5/10/07 is going alot better then 5/10/05 or 06'. yep, it's two years ago today that i was crushed by a truck, changing everything. feeling pretty alright today, although i'm struggling a bit with nerve pain right now and was up quite a bit of last night with spasms of both legs. i don't dwell on my issues very much, but feeling a little introspective on this anniversary of the shittiest day yet......i definately still have long-term problems. skeletal, muscle and joint pain, nerve pain and spasms that at some point of almost every day force me to shut down or curl into a ball......life is definately difficult. but, it goes on if you choose to make it so. on the lighter side, got the chainstays on chris's bike today, it's looking more like a bike. wasn't about to start on the seatstays, those are gonna be CUSTOM on such a small rear triangle, and i'm alloting them their own day, also built some wheels. went fishing yesterday, we got 11 nice rainbows, with barry's 15 incher taking biggest trout, but not biggest fish, he also caught a huge sucker, netting him the $5.00 sucker derby prize. and, driving down to the lake in the morning we saw a HUGE really healthy black bear as well. arizona's high country sure is cool! gonna try to go ride my bike for the first time in a while tomorrow, weather allowing! catch you all later, steve.
