Back Home / out of here until 4/1 healing up.


Back at home, really tired. They removed my gallbladder, it was making me really sick but I just got the green light on my blood work that I am doing much better.

I have five holes in my abdomen but am not on any pain meds at all and feel quite sore but pretty well all things considered.

Needless to say, I'll be down for a few days, and mostly want to at least get Amy's frame brazed before I have to leave to a family shindig in the Verde Valley, where I will likely file Amy's frame as I recuperate from this vastly unexpected setback.

So: I'm going to TRY to get Hanna's bike built before I leave on the 26th, take Amy's down to file as long as I get better enough to hold up a torch long enough to braze it, and then Stuart, Alisha, Christie & Jeffery are on the immediate radar come 4/1.

Sorry for the build queue delays, but my eyes were turning yellow & they would not let me leave! - Steve

Here's to a speedy recovery.
You can totally handle a gall bladder removal - shoot, wasn't it just last year that you had some crazy allergic reaction to bee pollen that nearly killed you? Really, one of the funniest photo sequences, ever.

Steve,
If pushed for time, I'm sure I could build up Hanna's bike with some help with a friend, his tools, and his know how. Glad you're back home.

Excellent to hear you're back in the fight, Steve-O. Take a day or two to recover, you deserve it.

I hope you recover fast, Steve.If I were you, I would wait on the torch work until you feel really fit again.....we are getting older and recovery takes a little longer. Whenever I go back into the shop after an injury/surgery too soon the wall gets dented from flying tools.

gallbladders are over-rated. Hope your recovery is good. Troy
