Finally I am out of the wheelchair. On Friday my physio gave me a zimmer frame (queue the old fart jokes) then yesterday after a spell of tuition he sent me away with crutches. Now I can get upstairs, so can finally use the toilet, shower bath and marital bed!
I've just been on a solo flight to the corner shop; a round trip of about 300yds. I'm knackered and am getting blisters on my hands but its cetainly worth it.
In a couple of weeks I'll start intensive physiotherapy and should be allowed to drive shortly after that. Any bike riding will have to wait til next spring, which gives me the winter to think about buying something new(ish) and shiney :)

Great news Tim:) I know what you mean about getting mobile again, and those blistered hands:banghead Try putting some foam pipe lagging around the handles.

Good to hear you're getting around better. It is definitely a good day when you aren't wheel chair bound anymore! Amazing how we take simple acts for granted until we can't do them anymore.

I just has a little thumb injury and it is just now getting to where I can mostly not think about it. Good on you for getting around. Nothing is worse than not being able to do what you want. It is getting better, lets hope it gets better faster from here. Luckily I didn't have to do any PT. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as you continue your recovery. You're doing great. You need a special motorcycle to replace the other one. Maybe a Duc Streetfighter is in order :coocoo.

That's geat news Tim:), & it's good to hear that you are still contemplating a return to 2 wheels after what you've gone through.

I'm sure you will improve in leaps & bounds once you start your physiotherapy.

Keep your pecker up.:fingerlol ( which will be easier now that you can crawl into the marital bed ) LOL.

Best wishes to you & your family.
