Barely outpatient! It turns out a sort of. . .slice of my toe went with the nail, so they had to attach it properly and make sure there wasn't going to be permanent nerve damage.

I miss my bike.

J has an infected sebaceous cyst on his left buttock... It was cool until it popped, now it's just gross. I only think they are cool on youtube now.


I made him get antibiotics, he'll be okay.


This is the third time it's come back, this time if there is still a cyst there when it heals I'm going to nag him until he gets the cyst removed. He's been in so much pain lortabs don't even seem to help much with it.


You men are so stupid stubborn  :hammer:

I ski, rock climb, mountain bike, race cross bikes, and do steep hill repeats on a single speed. No knee troubles.

Then today I injured my knee sledding with my kids.  We were heading for a tree so I planted a foot to try to turn the sled. My foot stopped but the rest of me on the sled kept going. The knee twisted to the outside with a popping sensation.

I am currently icing, resting, elevating. There is no pain at rest and minimal swelling, and it feels stable, so that's reassuring, but the knee is very stiff in motion and any twisting motion is very painful. 

2/3 through the first build week. I'll take at least  2-3 days off the bike to assess the severity. I will be very depressed if this is a significant setback.

Dude, you had no business sledding, you are older than me :D


That sucks, GC, hopefully you just tweaked it and it's not serious.

Well, it's sprained, but I'm hopeful that it's minor.   The knee is definitely stable so I don't think there is meaningful ligament damage.  Certain motions are very painful, but luckily not pedaling motions.  I just did 30 minutes at very high cadence and low resistance, and there is no question that the knee feels better afterwards.  So I'll do that for a week and see what happens.




PS.  I really wish Makel would delete post #679...

It's healed up now, just a little purple still. It's still in there, he needs to get it cut out.

Glad you've found something to do in there. Heal up!
