    Default Update on Lode

    Lode was on here earlier this morning and I happened to catch him on pm. He told me I could tell ya'll he is still alive and kicking.

    Here it is...straight from the Goat's mouth...



    "Yeah......still in a lot of pain. The meds make me woosey when I'm up for more than 5 minutes, but I'm getting there. I've got two drainage tubes that are still filling up rather quickly, so I'm not all that mobile just yet, either.

    It's hard to sleep, so I've been struggling with that as well. I just can't get comfortable........but it's all good, I can handle it.

    Thanks for checking in.....I just haven't been out of bed very much.

    Miss you guys,
    Lode


    Feel free to share any of this with interested people on the links, I've got no problem with it. I figured some people might be wondering where I've been."

    I must have missed something here as well. What happened to Lode? It didn't sound too good.
    Well, in any case, I hope he's alright and gets well very soon.

    Besides, he needs to be fully alert when our teams play each other in fantasy football. The Atomic Punks aren't very generous when it comes to handing out sympathy points.

    Lode just went through the "final step" of his dramatic transformation. As you probably remember, in 2006 (pretty sure I have that right) he had gastric bypass surgery. On Monday he had surgery to remove excess skin from all his weight loss---as he called it, a "Mega Tummy Tuck".

    I've gotten a couple of very woozy voice mails from him that I'll gladly give him shit about once he's his old ornery self again, but it sounds like the surgery went well and now it's just a pretty long healing process.

    Here's how I see it..

    Lode is the man, always has been the man and will continue to be the man.
    He will perservere through all of this rough-stuff because it is something he wanted to achieve and, not surprisingly at all, has achieved.

    I am so damn happy for him that he was able to make a choice, a choice that he felt was right for him, and take it on with great courage and insight, not to mention his characteristic humor and openess.

    Now, as he makes the turn towards the final leg of the long journey to a better self, he will once again appear, heading 'round turn number 4, with a full head of steam and a huge-ass and deserved grin on his chiseled face, blowing smoke, cracking jokes and enlightening us all with his courage and willingness to make hard choices for his own slef-improvement and maybe just teaching us all about a thing or two about life that we can all take to heart.

    Maybe i come out here and across as too serious sometimes, but i believe Lode is a role model for those of us who have our own changes to face and he knows I love him, so i say as i feel, which i know is no surprise..;-)

    My only hope is that when they went in to remove the excess skin, they didnt just stop there and they went into the cranial cavity and removed some of that good ol' Ohio State bluster from the brain, as well as the ability to continually insist on referring to that..'school' as "THE"...

    God bless you brotha and im thinking of you and Tabby and the family as Poppa heads into the home stetch...no pun intended...
