Absolutely football.

Jonesin for some real football. Last night was just a tease!

Kevlar Kid

Hi JOMerz... nearly expired Kevlar Kid here.

nearly succumbed to an infected c-4 vertebrae. the spinal column was infected.

as the infection grew it encompassed the foreign material into some kind of sac pressurizing the spinal column causing hellish pain.

spinal surgeon and team worked nearly 12 hours to do what neededed to be done. strep infection of the spinal chord.

morphine, percosette, oxycontin, oxycodone, MScontin, and all of their short/fast acting derivatives were applied in various combinations and formats to ward off pain.

still sorting out details of the ambush.

the surgeon has been very accessible post-op. it was clearly for him a surgery of a lifetime. wackamo spagetti-o for me too.

bottom line, he had to disassemble the vertebrae and "clean it", reassemble it, and put it back in place.

i'm walking. no problems. have a lil bit of a hitch in my giddyup. but none to write home about.

came home yesterday (went in Joo-LY 29th i think)

still walkin.

go figyuh.

yay Gawd.

"still walkin"

More like a walkin' miracle! It's incredible to think that they can even do that kind of "clean up" -- glad you've made it through both the infection and the operation!


Kev, that is scary! I suppose you have some PT ahead, walking sounds great as a start!

Dave (in MA)

Holy crap Kevlar, I was wondering why we hadn't seen you. Get well!

Kevlar Kid

Will do my best to keep in between the ditches. Just in time for footbaugh.

Glad to be out of that hospito.

Don't know what you got til its gone....

Paradise Kev


You don't know me, I mostly lurk,but I am so happy you are well and back. You are one of my favorite posters and one of the most interesting. Never a dull moment with you around.
So sorry to hear of your tribulation.
God is good!!!!!

Clarice Feldman

Glad to hear you are well, P.S. don't throw out any unused percocet--asking for a friend. %^)


Geez, Kev! Makes my little back procedure in June seem like a walk in the park by comparison. Glad you're on the mend.

Kevlar Kid

the percosette wasn't the family favorite during this whole ordeal.

I was in the hospital for extry days while the "pain crew" dickered over how much of this or that they were going to broker my way.

percosette made me rather "flowery" in my delivery. at one point, Mrs. K threatened to use a pillow to shorten my exhortative and deliberately bombastic style when speaking to the doctors (king of bloviators).

i have some journal entries that are a scream.
the crew kept all of that inventory under lock and key. boy, that push button delivery system was fun though. two pops per hour.

Kevlar Kid

Fellow traveler kave--->

Delighted Kev

Captain Hate

Hey Kev, we can compare PT notes. Wow did you dodge one, even if it might not feel quite that way.


Praise God! Kev what a miracle you are. Keep up the recovery enthusiasm.


Yikes Kev or is it Johnny now?

Kevlar Kid

narciso----> it's Kev once more. feels right. johnny's here to clean up any left over biscuit batter or bacon fat.

asw-----> there's no other recovery enthusiasm quite like the one choosing us this very moment. current one seems to have me by the scruff o my neck til the next round of sheckin and droolin'runz its course. oh well. glormf!
