And did he talk through the whole procedure?
Candle-lit vigil at Dustboy corner?
Hope you're not feeling too rough today Dusty
And as for your supporting pirates more - I'm one pirate who never would have made it last year without your support both in the Surrey Hills Beginners Rides and at Outlaw
Heal well and look forward to catching up with you when you're back on your feet (or should that be bike!) again
+ 1 for that Podds!!
Latest news is :- He is alive and sporting a 'Brazilian'! He doesn't seem happy as someone thought it would be a laugh to surgically tape the hairs on his 'Crown Jewels' to the ones on the inside of his leg!! Aaagghhh! This morning when he had his waxing!! (He said 'dressings changed', but we all know that's what he really means, don't we?) 'Back, crack and sac sir?'
He's sore and tired and has a few more wires than the National Grid going in/out!
But, it's all good so far and he thanks you all for the Pirate support!!
I really shouldn't laugh but that's quite an image you conjour up Siggy!!
Poor old soul.......
Thanks for the update though
I hope they didn't charge £50 for the Boyzillian! Glad to hear you're out and awake Dustboy
Phew, he's ok .
How do you know the cost of a Boyzillian Mr Pea?
I'm a girl, not a Mr! Just hazarding a guess, hehehe
I heard you volunteered to carry them out Lee and that was your 'going rate'!!
Some of us get charged more than others Siggy
Those more 'hirsute' Raf?
What did Dusty have done? My mum had heart surgery 4years ago so I know it's a long path but he's a Pirate which means it'll be shorter and littered with support
An ablation pixie. So should recover reasonably quickly.
Oh he'll be up in no time! (crosses fingers and sends positive vibes)
I recall the day of my mum's op very clearly and I would have loved someone to have been there even virtually to say it would all be OK
(Waves weakly). Many thanks to all for your support. Apparently it took about 5 hours in the end and bled for another 17 but holes stopped leaking now.
Second dressing removal (wax to you girls) comes tomorrow and I'd take that anyday to having another canula put in.
Procedure successful but will have to wait another couple of months to know if it has worked or not which is when they stop the meds.
And I found that Temazepam really fucks with your head. Either that or it was a toss up whether me or the thread hamster made it. Or both.
See lots of you soon and hope to be doing some gentle stuff soon and back to racing next year.
Great news DB. We'll see you back on the training thread soon. Sending big hugs and hope the recovery is smooth.
Nice report Dusty
Glad you are mending well DB. I really think it's a bit soon for you to be doing RP laps though
Gissa shout when you do your first ride and we'll make sure there's a gang of us there with you to celebrate your return to fitness
