Energy.:)

I'm very short on it. Reheab is going to be a long road. Something as simple as standing in place for even 2 minutes brings my breathing to it's max and my heart rate to about 140. Thats a long way from walking across a room, or bending over. When you finally get there, then you have forever to go still to walk up an incline or lift something.

Motivation and energy are at a premium right now.

Im not complaining, but I still dont see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Right now I just put my head down and keep grinding, and every now and then raise my head to see a little progress. I'll get there.

Positive thoughts you guys have chipped in have been plenty. Thanks.

Talked to CH Friday. He has moved out of the hospital and is staying in Barnes Lodge which is like a small apartment from what I gather, but still on the Hospital Grounds. He is there to do sort of semi-outpatient PT, but also still has to be monitored heavily. (correct me if I'm wrong CH) He is very weak everywhere but the heart. This is a brutal battle, but if I've ever seen anyone up to the task, this is the guy. He and Mrs. CH both. Still fighting infections because of a tanked immune system....every little infection that wouldn't even bring a sniffle to most of us is a very serious ordeal. He definitely needs more prayer and intentional good thoughts. I know that many of you have heard his wit and edge on the Planet, but you should really know this guy and his wife. They are some of the hardest working, honest, strait-spoke, thoughtful folks that I've ever met. Very good friends of mine. CH is also intense in competition and a thinker. In a time when I would have a hard time carrying on an understandable conversation because of physical, mental and emotional adversity, he seems absolutely as sharp as ever. I was amazed in talking to him at his awareness and clarity considering his circumstances. There is no way to communicate his challenges by words.

God Bless CH. You can do it!

Very good clear and concise communication, KCB, and yes, I now DO feel like I know him better, you do nice at explaining how a person is. Anyhow, I said a personal prayer for CH on Sunday in church, i'll be certain to keep em up. God bless you Crazy, you are going to do this! Yes, I'm thouroughly convinced that this is a 'baby-step' road to recovery, but YOU can do it w/ the help from our lord. I really hope this all works out and i'm pretty sure it will. Also, Crazy-Horse, I know you have a lot of 'immediate' support, currently. But as always (and this goes for any CP'ers) my inbox is open for anything at anytime and for anybody.

God bless,

Hey All
I spent this last weekend with Dan. He is out of the hospital but staying in St. Louis. He is doing rehab Mon thru Fri at the hospital. He doesn't have internet access but he wanted me to let you all know that "he is still grinding".
He is still on oxygen and can't stand for very long or walk very far. But he can do those things at short periods with patience. We actually went out and ate dinner at a local small place. It was hard for him. But he wanted to it so we did it!!

Kind words from kind people. I pick my friends carefully, and am never disappointed. I have nothing but love and respect for both of you and your families, but you know that.

As for my rehab it has been slow. The lungs have been slow in waking up until last week where I finally made great strides in my recovery for the 1st time since my surgery.

There is no doubt that emotionally it is every bit as traumatic as the surgery itself is to the body. It's difficult to put into words how tough it is when you no longer trust your body. It has almost broken my spirit many times over. Perhaps it has at times, but I have been able to hold it together with my wife an son by my side.

This is by far the biggest challenge I have ever faced. Because it is so physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging. Forget your dignity, or your persona. You dont come out the same man you went in.

The good news is, that while I lost the handle on my life and who I was since May, I am finding myself again, and beginning to see the old me, who I thought I may have lost forever.

The donor lungs were a poor set. there was injuy too them during the surgery that may mean they may never be as good as someone elses transplant. But I have come to the conclusion that these lungs belong to me. I no longer belong to them. Since then I have found the "handle" to my life again and am using it to pull myelf from the hole I was in emotionally.

Rehab is demanding, but I wont be out worked. So whatever can be accomplished with these lungs, I will achieve it.

Friday I walked 30 minutes at .6 mph on a treadmill. That was @12 liters of O2. that will be the challenge. Getting the O2 down. At 12 I will be practically stuck to my home. This week the lungs woke up and produced O2 numbers of 98 and 100% saturation. Very encouraging. It's the 1st good news I've had since my surgery. It means there are good signs that I will in fact be able to start droppong that 12 liters soon. I dont know how far I can take it, but am very encouraged.

I still have a long way to go and am very very weak. But I wont be out worked. So Im hoping to be back home in a couple months.

Thanks for all the kind words folks. I check in every time I get a chance. They pick me up sometimes when Im feelin pretty low. So, thanks.

Dan

I have a tv with cable. But Im in St Louis so they dont show the Chiefs games.

KCB1 is right though. I'll find a way.

I haven't missed a game in 20 years. Dont plan on missing any in the future.

Is there a web cast? Where a guy with wireless might go find a signal and watch it on the web?

There are often web streams out there, but you usually can't find them until right before games start. If you end up in that situation, log in to the Planet - chances are you'll find a stream. I'll warn you though - the quality isn't that great.

You might want to check into NFL rewind if nothing else. It's not LIVE, but someone wrote to them and got a reply that stated games would be available 1-3 after the game ends. If you're out of other options, it might be worth the $40.

Finally, you might be able to find someone with DirecTV with SuperFan. People with that package can stream games live online. Not sure how it would work when sharing with someone else, though. Good luck!

I will donate $10 if thats okay with Crazy Horse to get him started on getting a SlingBox.

I'm sure that someone in the KC Area will be willing to hook it up to their TV for him so he can watch the Chiefs games.

If you are cool with this CH, lets get some more donors so he can watch his Chiefs!

Hell, for that matter, if someone in KC is willing to mess with getting it set up, I could donate the slingbox itself. I've got my old Slingbox Tuner sitting around doing nothing. (It would have to be someone with a standard cable connection though - no satellite.)

Update:

Been a couple weeks since I've given the latest.

I made a trip home this weekend. It was nice to see the house, the pets, and a few select friends. There was a time I wondered if I would ever lay eyes on them again.

I've been rehabbing hard. My O2 is down to 6 litres @.8 mph on the treadmill. While I'm glad to be raisisng the speed and endurance, the real satisfaction come from that 6. I can actually get out of the house at 6 litres. Not easily, not for long.......but I can. I still want to get it lower. But that's where we are now.

Had a chance to drive the hot rod this weekend. It's when I really felt myself. A freedom, if you will. It's been awhile.

Doc says I may be able to come home for good in a month if I keep progressing at this rate. I have been the star of pulmonary rehab. It seems like every day I am upping my speed or dropping my oxygen. Though I am still pretty week, I have taken my 1st stand up shower since March, made love to my wife for the 1st time in 6 months, and doing a few small things that I have been unable to do for awhile.

Still cant clib stairs, or lift anything. Cant walk very far, but further than before.

The prayers are working. I'm working, and the lungs are working. At least they are starting to. Best of all, I'll be home soon.

Things didn't go as we hoped. I've had many obstacles to overcome. Some that I cant overcome. But I'm still here, and looking forward to the future.

As for updates, I am walking at 1.2 mph on the hamster wheel @4 litres of O2. Thats better than we thought it would ever be and I still seem to be moving slowly forward. I m blessed to be with my family. Every day I am alive from here forward is gravy.

If you remember I started out walking .5 mph at 12 litres for 2 minutes before having to stop. That was about 6 weeks ago. I was wheelchair bound all the time. I am walking on my own without the chair. I'm not gonna tell you things have become easy for me, but they are not so difficult that there is no quality of life. And I fully expect things to get even better.

Great news! we really do not know each other less passing in a few threads. That said it is very cool to read about someone I kind of know beating the odds. May you take this second chance and live well! And know that others felt a victory to read about the struggle and recovery.

Wrong. Crazy Horse got his lung FROM Gary Coleman....that's why Gary died.
