Sweet Tuesday Morning

Heading down to see some Gators about a hole in my heart on Tuesday. If all goes well, I'll be home Wednesday, and hopefully (dare I think this far ahead?) back on a bike by mid/late November.

My wife's and my relationship is about to go to a new level of intimacy, as she is shooting drugs into my body. Boy the fun of having a heart issue and a stroke, just keeps getting better.

I have to say: I am thankful I have a job with really good benefits. I am thankful for the truly compassionate and quality heath care I have received. But jeez, I am worn down to the nub with all the blood giving, opinion getting, prescription filling, form writing, warning label reading, and "in the unlikely eventing" I have been doing. Like a new Mom in the ninth month, my fears have been replaced by an over whelming need to: "get it over with". Just to stay honest, I have managed to stay (a little) scared shitless.

So it is with true BC resolve that I roll balls out, no brakes, f#*^ it if I take a digger, towards this obstacle in my trail. Even if I leave some big ring teeth on it, I'm still gonna be stoked, if I am rolling on the other side.

See y'all at the start/finish. Save me a seat, a sausage dog, and a Fat Tire Ale.

As I am dealing with my own set-backs, you are a great role model. I'll be thinking about you until you get back, at which point I will resume pretending I do not care.

Are thoughts and prays are with you buddy. We can't wait to have you back on the trails with us.

We will be cheering you on at the start/finish and shower you with beer when you cross the line with a big smile. There will be taps of Fat Tire flowing from "Carroll's Fat Tire Ale Beer Truck" sponsored by BikeChain. And the grill will be fired up cooking your favorite foods. As for a chair, we will see what we can do! I will be thinking of you and your family and sending lots of positive vibes.

Shands is the best they do this stuff all the time. You'll be in good hands.

Had surgery at Shands in '94. They're true pros,and I'm not just saying that because I'm a Gator.

Hey -- my best to you. Sending good thoughts your way.

But as for the Fat Tire? I can't guarantee that'll be around long!
