  3. well, I'm coming up on 7 months since my interruption in life. arms, are what they are going to be. still gaining strength. I tried to get partial disability, but was turned down, for age and not enough. income for 2017. applying for medicaid. still out of work. started the process of re-activating my contractors license with the state. I have to give it some time to see if I'll be able to ride again. ( Hopes are high). just FYI, Joe & some of the boys are going to Nova Scotia this year. ( I'm in the well see mode ) June.
  4. well, I guess, a nice long week, camping, in southwest Georgia, maybe some canoeing, hiking, would also like to be doing it on a bike ( but that will have to wait til next year ) This year I'm taking my wife to Guntersville for a long weekend, and go look at land on the lake. ( possible Build ) we are moving out of Florida.
  5. Insurance paid off the bike, I still had Medical bills to pay, so over half of the recovery fund, went to covering the last of the bills.. I'm slowly gaining strength back. going to re-open on construction company for Jan. of 2018. In the process of paperwork, fingerprints, and background check ( Pass the popcorn ) and a tissue, this is going to take awhile. My buy another bike next year. Goldwing hopefully. I have a question. I see, people move trailers, from house to house here. would I be able to do something like that? My trailer is in Kanab Utah. at the Xray techs. house, wher
  6. Geico, final paid off the bike. we put the monies into savings. and we'll see, what my arms feel like in a year. therapy is over. , I'm finding out what my limitations are., right now, I know if it's going to rain. still can't put too much pressure in both the forward and pulling. My trailer is still sitting in Kanab Utah. I'm driving my truck.mostly with my left hand. My wife retired, a few weeks ago. she'll be 65 on friday, I still have 10 years left. I closed my construction business, & put my Armed guard Licenses on medical leave for two year. I will however, keep my license active
  7. Hey this is Mike just giving you guys an update on how my arms are recovering. I did three and a half months of intense physical therapy and completed that about two and a half weeks ago. Left-arm as you know had two breaks, and were put back together with screws and some kind of flex band. I have about 97% usage out of my left arm. Right arm is another story. This arm was broken and second locations, basically basically lower arm crushed in 4 places below the elbow and three places broken above the elbow. A specialist from St George Utah worked on my right arm for 7 hours. All the local docto

  9. The wife and I are going to wait awhile before deciding what to buy next. I need to make sure my arms heal up right. I have another doctors appointment this coming week. I hope to get release to go back to work for FEMA. and hopefully stay local. My trailer is sitting in a garage in Kanab Utah. I will not be going back for it. (It is FOR SALE ) where she sits. asking 700.00 ( I bought her new for 1800.00 a few years ago) If you're interested, I'll ask the owner of the place where its located. if I can give out his number and address. this is my email: dcijams@gmail.com This is a Matri

  12. I'm just pissed that I only got 12 days into my 35 day trip to see the western portion of the country. I had/Have plans to finish this trip. but didn't think, it was going to take this long, One to recover and two, to have the bike repaired. now, 3 months and 3 weeks. but the doctor figured 6-8 months on my right arm. I'm now expected to make it in 5 months. but I'm doing all my homework, as therapy requires.https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Kanab,+UT+84741/Zion+National+Park,+Utah/Bryce,+UT/Grand+Teton+National+Park/Yellowstone+National+Park/Missoula/Walla+Walla/New+Pine+Creek/Reno/Hoover+Dam/@
  13. we bought one, a few years ago. right now, I use a paste Joe from WV gave me, ( its for cow udders) to keep soft. it really works well, for scaring
  14. It was Express to me by the doctor here in Vero Beach, that if my right arm heals good and bone is showing improvement over the next year and a half or so, the plate that supports that section of elbow can be removed. Allowing for more flexibility toward a straighter arm. Leaving the rest of the metal in however. As the right arm as you see in the X-ray was broken and crushed in seven places.
