    my back is feeling much better,

    but i found out today the stables use to close yo up hurt like hell.

    especialy in the morning when you are stiff, I fell like they closed me up wit barb wire,,I have 14 staples and I know where each one is:crazy:

    please take care of your back, I would hate to see anyone go thru this,

    Wow, 14 is a lot. I had 24 of them. I'm worried to death about how many I'm going to have when I have my surgery or 2. Also when they pull them out it hurts like hell. Trust me, I've been through it.
    I'm tickled to death you're feeling better! Prayers are being answered for you Brother!!!

    this may sound gross but I had my frist bowel movement since the operation, did not think I was gonna make it to the pot in time..I love my wife, she cleaned things up, was not to bad:smile2:

    It is hard to take a crap when yo cant sit on the pot, just lean back and hope for the best.:smile2:

    John thanks for being a true friend. I will be making a road trip to see you in a few weeks, got some stuff for you I promised, maybe evn a used 7000 I dont use anymore...Unlike somepeople you are a true friend, and you take care of your true friends.

    Jack you don't have to give me anything at all. I consider you a true friend also, I just can't wait to meet you and shake your hand and maybe have a cup of coffee or 3 and sit around and talk.:wink:
    Anything you need all you have to do is PM me or call me and I'll do whatever I can for you. Thats what REAL Friends are for, they are there for each other and do whatever they can to help each other out!!!:wink::big_smile:

    I just hope I'm able to get around or out in a few weeks, I'll find out whats gonna happen Wednesday when I see the Neurosurgeon.

    It just makes me so Happy that you are doing so well! I hope my surgery(ies) go as well as yours!!!

    I'm glad that both of you are doing okay and that your hopes and spirits are still high.

    It's kinda funny how a common bond of back problems or any similar problems between folks,will make an anchor of good friends. It's funny that that is what brought you two together but it is also wonderful that it was the catalist that forged a great and long lasting bond that will only strengthen with time.

    That is so the truth! I hate it that we both have bad backs but all the PM's and talking on the phone we have become really good friends. I'd do anything for Jack, He's a great guy and no BS from him. I guess something really good has came out of us having bad backs....Hopefully a Life Time of Friendship!!!
    I can't wait to meet him, just to shake his hand and talk about fishing, life and anything else that comes up! Jack Truly is a Great guy!!!:wink:

    Truth be told, I've wanted a 7000 for over 8 years now. Every time I've had the $, something came up(mainly bills) and I had to pass it up. I won't turn them down but I want you to know that you don't have to do that at all. You'll still be a True Friend to me and I'll still be a True Friend to you and even show you a couple of my honey holes...:wink: :0a31:
    I just hope I'm healed up enough to at least get out of the house by then and if not fish I can watch.:smile2:....Hopefully the Surgeon will have me on good meds and I'll be able to get out. I have an OH license so I'm legal to fish there too If we get to go fishing. :cross: :0a32:
    I'm more excited to meet you and shake your hand than I am with what you're giving me!:wink::big_smile:

    i think our first trip should be to a easy access spot such as a paylake, that way John can show me all the inns and outs of how to fish these places:smile2:
    hell a couple beers and a couple pain pills and we may even be able to climb mt everest!:smile2:

    Hope your recovery goes as good as mine did. Try to remember to not push it or you'll be back to where you were before. Good luck.

    OK, you name the place or shall I? :roll_eyes::eek:oooh::wink::smile2:
    I may, just may show you how to catch a Flathead since you've never caught a big one.....:crazy::tounge_out::wink::smile2:

    I'll supply the Brews, let me know what brand you like and you supply the pain pills...:roll_eyes::smile2:....Heck, we may end up just going to the river to one of my spots where you go through a hayfield then cross some Railroad Tracks, go through another hayfield and then walk about 30-40 yards down to the river. Real nice fish there!!!!!!:crazy::wink::smile2:

    YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO SMOKE THE POT AND SIT ON THE THRONE.
    WHEN I HAD MY BACK SURGY THE SUPPER GLUED MY CUT.
    THIS FROM EXPERENCE, DO NOT RUSH THINGS AND DO NOT LIFT ANYTHING HEAVEY,BIG GUYS WANT TO PROVE THEIR OK NOW AND CAN DO ANYTHING. I DID THAT AND NOW THE PAIN IS THERE FOR LIFE, AND NO DRUGS IN THE WORLD WILL MAKE IT GO AWAY.
    DO NOT PUSH OR PULL ON ANYTHING FOR GOOD WHILE, ASK FOR HELP WHEN IT COMES TO SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THE DOCTOR TOLD ME NOT TO LIFT ANYHTING OVER 25 LBS. TELL THAT TO SOMEONE WHO HAS ALWAYS DID THINGS ON HIS OWN. IT TAKES A WHILE BEFORE THE BODY CAN CONVINCE THE BRAIN YOU CAN'T DO THOSE THINGS ANYMORE.
    HOPE YOU KEEP GETTING BETTER AND GET SOME FISHING IN SOON.

    TAKE CARE
