Awesome news! (other than New England losing last weekend but dang that was a good game! Somehow I ended up rooting for BOTH teams :shock: )

So, for the last three years I've been fighting a series of sinus and bone infections in and around where I had been irradiated as part of my cancer treatment. ..
Well, I am happy to announce that I CAN SEE!!!! Yep 2 surgeries (private pay, imhop Kaiser sucks!) and three months of recovery, once again I have (almost) a full visual field and don't get the dizzies every time I turn my head.
Next is to get myself another motorbike to replace the RZ I sold when I first got sick, once I started puking in my helmet it had to go. ... I'm thinking maybe an XL650r, whatcha think?
Of course it also means that I can finally get back to work fulltime. ..... :roll:
If any of you locals need help with the heavy lifting (or the consumption of large amounts of various foods and beverages) drop me a line, I need to get out of the house and have some fun!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

That's great news, Jack! Good for you! I hope the rest of the recovery goes well... Keep us posted.

I realize I'm kinda diagonally across the continent from you, but if you ever wanna help work on the Slotus, we'd love to have ya around... TWWTFM can make extra red-beans-and-rice and we'll do just fine...

:cheers:
