When I was a kid and hurt myself, I was afraid to go home cuz my mother would wup my ass. I'd go crawl into a hole instead.
Dammit Goose! You be careful out there. Don't worry, I won't wup your ass. Get well soon. Don't be laying around too much cuz that's how pneumonia can set in.
+1 count me in if needed. That's what friends are for. Course if you have pizza!!
Hows it hanigin', Goose..................
Those of you who have offered to help with this year's wood,
I am guessing that is help we will seriously need.
They are planning on doing the leg surgery on Monday,
and hope to be able to let him wake up some after
that. At that time I should have a better idea of
how things are.
Oh man, this is serious. Thanks for the update Mary-Anne. I'm really glad he has someone there with him. This must be really tough on you. Please let us know what we can do to help.
I'd be happy to help in any way I can, and thank you for keeping us posted.
I could donate a cord or so..cut and split last March, and could get it stacked for you. Problem I have is transportation of the wood from my house to Billerica, as I don't have a truck. (I'm in Westminster)
If someone has a decent truck that can haul up your way, PM me, and I look to set up a delivery...or would offer to help someone closer and could help unload and stack.
You are very sweet. Thank-you.
Whether we need the wood depends on how Goose recovers,
which should be clearer in a few days.
Goose and I have a minivan, so I think we can use that for transportation
if nobody local has a truck.
Yes, if we need physical help we can organize pizza.
We have at least 4 different sources of pizza within
10 minutes away. I would want Goose to organize
that when he is able.
Goose and Mary-Anne,
You are both in my prayers and I am sending lots of good thoughts your way. Lots of people will probably offer you help during this time. Accept all of it. You will return it to others when called upon. Things like the ordeal that your going through wake people up, because it could happen to any of us. If I lived in Lowell or Chelmsford there would be a lasagna on your doorstep, but since I live an hour and a half away I will send a bunch of good thoughts your way. God bless. Goose will be cutting trees again soon.
Get well soon! Our thoughts are with you. You've helped me out in the past with thoughtful responses to my wood stove questions. If I still lived in Worcester, I would volunteer my pick-up truck to help you with wood deliveries.
All the best,
May you be right!
We'll get some wood and help to you for sure. Can you get help locally for the bees?
If no one nearer comes through with a truck, my 1 ton is available on weekends.
Get well Goose.
Be strong Goose! You've got a lot of people pulling for you.
Goose i have always had respect for your thoughts on this forum. I(along with everyone else im sure) have nothing but positive thoughts and prayer for you and those around you. A lot of good vibes. On a lighter note , you no Goose you have have time and chance to come up with a mind blowing kick ass tall tale here. SO COME ON GOOSE MAKE IT A GREAT TALE lol
The surgeons are doing the surgery to repair Goose's broken leg.
They will probably insert a metal bar so he will set off metal detectors.
There is a possibility that a side effect of the heart surgery may have resulted in
some paralysis of his legs due to lack of blood flow to the spine during surgery,
so it is not clear how mobile he will be when this is done.
He will be woken up slowly, most likely tomorrow.
There is no internet connection in the surgical intensive care unit,
and he is expected to stay there for some days.
There is internet in the regular hospital rooms,
so he can probably be online after they move him.
The leg bone may take a couple of years to heal
I was not kidding about the physical help.
Further prayers still appreciated.
Any information about local rehabilitation hospitals also
I expect we can get local help with the bees.
There is a group that meets at the local
bee supply shop.
Thanks for asking.
I expect most of the wood moving will happen on week-ends,
weather permitting, since that is when more people have time.
Wow! He is really banged up! I am so sorry to hear this. Again, my best wishes and thoughts to you both.
Mary-Anne - from a person that has recently seen his significant other go through a horrendous accident (Broken neck in two places (requiring halo), broken back in 3 places requiring rods to fuse the 3 together. 4 broken ribs, scapula, and sternum, I will say that the human body is an amazing organism.
Its hard to see a loved one laying in a hospital bed, wondering the outcome. It WILL be taxing on mind and body for both of you. BUT - It WILL get better. The healing will start, the humor will return, normality will once again be normal. Stay strong for the both of you.
April 2nd will be the one year anniversary for that day for me. And one day, you will say the same.
I'm reasonably local as well- grew up in Burlington and work in Lexington. I can join in any work party required, travel schedule permitting. I will do a LOT of work for a little pizza
I wish I was closer. I'll send beer to go along with the pizza mentioned above! Best wishes, Goose...
Heal Easy Goose,
Mary-Anne, I live on the Cape and while I don't have any wood.
I have saw, straps, a 3/4 ton truck, and free weekends.
If you need help I can make a trip.
Just let me know where and when.
Happy to help out. My mom lives just North of there in NH.
just let me know - you guys are an hour and 1/2 north but i have saws and truck shoot me a PM when you're ready
It'll probably be best in the long run to expend energy for buying in wood for next year.
