21-Feb-2008: 6 months after breaking my neck, the fusion of C5-C7 (front), C5-T1 (back) seems to be in good shape. My doc says cycling is ok now, but no contact sports, skiing, or lifting weights above my head (fortunately none of those things are hobbies of mine :)

Re: Have you...

Just got back from Ouray -- apparently the airport metal detectors have no complaints :)

Re: Have you...

The ice park was a lot of fun -- lots of ice and balmy weather with a bit of snow the last day. I have to improve my footwork, but oh well what's new :) Posted some pics here.

I hope you & Craig went skiing this past weekend !

Re: geeez Rob!

Thanks Radek ! Yes, the contact sports thing is going to put a crimp in my, ah, llama encounters, that's for sure :D

Re: BTW

Thanks Gareth. I have to admit I had to look that one up :) That damn plate in my neck still gives me problems swallowing .. I don't dare take multivitamin pills anymore without lots of water nearby and usually I cut them in half.

Cool!

Neat x-ray. Glad to hear you're doing better. And shit, you've got almost as many fillings as I do....
