Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

the return of. brain surgery guy.

#1 Post by Charles Lipscomb » Wed Oct 24, 2018 5:10 pm

Jumping back in with new news. I will post old news and answer any questions for those interested.
I continue to do well overall. Back over 205 lbs. But am working on it.
I had x rays of my right foot in July. Apparently it is and has been dislocated in three places. And since OT has been like that for years..
I had thought simple rehab therapy would work. But I was disabused of that notion.
Last Wednesday I went to a orthopedic surgeon about my right foot
He looked over my x rays and my foot. No good options.
No. Go on a brace. Surgery. To correct it by fusing was no guarantee they could straighten it enough i could walk on it. We did discuss this option at length.

Third option Amputation was pretty much a non starter with me. And he want particularly fond of the idea himself.
My foot is healthy and pain free. And as i told him " I wouldn't know what to do with all the free time from only having to cut five toenails." :D
I had hopes of walking and ditching the wheelchair. I still do. It took me forty years to get here. I have proven i have patience.
If I had listened to the doctors in 1985. I wouldn't even have the use of my right leg let alone the thought of walking again.
I am thinking of a home built peg leg for walking around the yard.
More later.
Again feel free to ask me anything..

Oh and here is a shot of my lovely niece Megan and me i (?) at her second gunshow. I took her and her mom to her first one in 1999.
For this one I felt she needed to wear cam so I pulled an old favorite out of my closet. I was surprised when she told me she didn't one any camouflage, her father has obviously neglected her choices. So I gave it to her.
Glad to say she liked it very much. Being as its from the early 80s rip stop cotton it is very comfortable.
It ( and Megan) were a big hit lots of guys recognized the pattern some having worn it. One in the Marines.
She had a good time. As did I.
When I posted this on FB number of people commented on taking a pretty girl to a gun show but she was safe. Mom was with us and the leg rests on my chair come off so she could easily beat them to death. :)

P. S. I don't know why these pics are coming out rotated...

Well I hadn't planned on it , but the sound of gunfire from my kid brothers range next door drew me out of the house today.
The weather was beautiful. Low 70s. Maybe high 60s. Nice breeze.

I posted these over on fb.
The carbine is my brothers Kel tec in 9mm. We cheated for this picture. Safety first. No ammo. No Mag. Amd bolt locked back. I noted in hindsight i think I could have safely shot it from this position. Maybe next time.
The pistol is my cyq p 38. The s a trigger wee better than I remembered. The da as bad. :)
I hit the board holding the targets, no problem. :)
I also shot his s&w shield in 9mm. It has a nice trigger and good sights but the grip felt strange to me. Maybe it was just my hold.
I have plans to shoot my 100 year new Remington m1917 as well as sight in my VAR barreled M1. But the ammo is stashed away and I didn't want to cut into my brothers shooting time.
As I am more confidant of his range and back stop I will get out there again.

Keel tec 2000 in 9mm.
The golf cart was a gift from a friend who didn't like the fact I couldn't get out and about in my own years due to the sugar sand.
We gave him a Shotgun (edit for typo). .and went to try it out. I got stuck and told them to go on without me. a few days later he showed up with this.
A hell of a nice guy. Hell of a life story. Born without his right hand, thalidomide (sp?) . the drug in we didn't start the fire. Billy Joel.
Rough choldh[d. But he overcame it. He has his own dump trucks. Plural. He rides his Harley Davidson.
He is a happier guy than me and that's saying something.
Great booming voice. The guy is tops.
