October 13, 2012, that was the last post I made and it wasn't even that good. I'm here, I'm still alive and I got some new parts this year!
Yaah! I had spinal surgery this past March and got the fun little titanium contraption above screwed into my vertebrae. Oh, got a new synthetic disk to go along with it too (although I was somewhat disappointed that he didn't use cadaver bone from a homicidal maniac criminal, it would have been such a good story to tell) . It's really pretty neat and my doctor was the best and the Catholic hospital I was in was second to none.
It hurt like H E doublehockeysticks. I'm in the middle of physical therapy and that isn't much fun either although the therapist is a great person and really compassionate and patient through my whining.
Sporting a different look also, this is my handlebar mustache that I'm sporting. This picture was from May so it's a tad bit longer now...and curls on the ends with the wax. Yep, I'm going hipster.
Didn't do too much anything for Hallowe'en last year, it was such a bad year last year that I just couldn't make myself conjure up the effort to do it. But the good thing is, I'm back and with 99 days to go, let the haunting begin!
