    • i was able to talk to my back doctor yesterday, did not understand what happened and really needed to know, i was in the or because of major complications when trying to remove the device in my back by a different HAC DOCTOR, there was a 50% chance of being in a wheelchair and having to start from scratch to learn all motor skills from waist down, there was a air flight on standby to take me to rush Trama center in Indianapolis, but my doctor, Dr Hyder, kept going and did get it out including the hardware that had came apart, also had to take out every piece holding my back together from the surgery he did a year ago. a lot of risk, had to inspect every fusion to make sure they had taken. if i would have waited till after boat season and just took a lot of pain meds, it could or as he said would have been a disaster, when i asked about starting pt again he said , i do not want you doing anything this month, sit still and take it day at a time. i just pray all this is almost over because i just feel i am at my limit for getting threw this stuff anymore, hopefully next season will be getting back to normal and gas will not be so high. i take a lot of blame for some of this because i am the kind of guy that just can not sit still, its time for me to learn that part.so take pictures guys , can not wait to see all of you out on your boats.

        • hi everyone, this was really hard but somehow again, i am pulling out of this even surprising, my doctors looking forward to start reading everything that i have missed, my back surgeon, said that he would be upset if i am not on the lake by middle of July, he also said that does not mean 100mph runs. He surprised me on that one, I have pictures, but they are really bad, i cannot even look at them but do have the new x-ray now, i think i am now part robot., never thought i would have higher dollar aftermarket parts in me then my 272. so, i am up walking and able to drive, i truly have someone above watching over me.

          • Awesome to hear! BTW, 100MPH on smooth water has to be easier on the back then 45 in 2 or 3 footers so wind that thing up!!!

              True but he runs on lake Michigan to be able to stretch it's legs and that lake very very rarely is flat...

              • i will have to use the seat instead of standing up the way i prefer, i still have to get the new sea pump in and a few other things and that would have to depend on my friends helping, also i look forward to going out on cedar lake for fireworks on the 4th of July, as of now we have had no rain and the lake is very low, no way i will scrap a prop for that, that is where the sunsport would have been perfect. i started pt yesterday but it is a tall order to think i will be ready, if we get the boat together my best friend will be driving until we are ready to pull in and off the docks and i am perfectly ok with that. i will post the one picture of my back with a x ray and i think everyone will understand what i just went threw, thanks guys,
