Progress II

I’m still on the mend. I’ve already regained about 90% of my range of motion. There is very little discomfort in most daily tasks. I’m pretty much back to normal except for a few areas. I obviously can’t work out yet. I go back to the doc on the 20th to see how the bone is healing. Odd angles of pressure still bother me but its more of an annoyance vs real problem. The biggest issue is I can’t sleep on that side yet. Not being able to sleep on my back or stomach, I get restless a lot at night sleeping on just one side trying to remain comfortable.1  I’ve resorted back to Ambien to get me thru the nights. It’s the only drug I’ve found so far that doesn’t leave me all groggy and lethargic in the mornings.

I can’t remember if I mentioned it but the bike was totaled. *sigh*  I’m gonna walk away w/about $3500 after the loan is paid off. Considering I financed the bike at $8k, that’s pretty good. I sent off the powr of attorney paperwork which is the last step in the process. That’s the good news. The bad news is my debt load has increased since I last purchased a bike and I’m worried I may not qualify for a low interest rate. I don’t have anything in the negative but carrying a high debt load does factor into the loan process. I’m hoping because its thru my credit union I will luck out. Keep your fingers crossed.

I’m gonna look for another 07-08 gixxr 750. I love the style and fit of the bike and I miss my beast something fierce. Worst case scenario, if I don’t get a good loan, I’ll work some massive overtime at work and just save up some cash to buy one outright. I’m not really looking to go that route as I’m not big on overtime these days.

My mood is up and down. I hate not being able to work out and with the erratic sleep, I’m cranky and irritable most days now. Another reason for the Ambien. The holiday is fast approaching and I can’t seem to find my xmas spirit. I’m sure it will hit me eventually but I wish it would hurry up already. lol Of course, I could always change my name to Scrooge McGrinch. lol

  1. Glad to read you're healing nicely. I'm scratching those lottery tickets as fast as I can man – we got to get you back on a Crotch-Rocket as soon as possible. San Francisco w/o Moby on a motorcycle is like a day without me being stoned! LOL

  2. Another benefit you'll find is being able to predict low-fronts coming in. With a great deal of accuracy (and a plate and 9 pins in my leg), I can tell when the weather will be changing (for the worse) 12-36 hrs before it happens.

    Glad you're on the mend. Don't rush the workouts. It'll come in time.

  3. Glad to hear bones still mend at our age! albeit with a little reinforcement from the metal. 🙂

    You know from my previous comments that I'm a DucNut, so I can't read this post without throwing this out there…

    You should really give Ducs a chance…a streetfighter would give you more hooligan than you know what to do with but comes with a price that's typically associated with Ducs. A monster on the other hand of the vintage you're looking at is incredibly affordable and is just too much fun. Strongly encourage a test drive of one before you buy another gixxer. Just sayin'.
