Best of luck to you! I am very jealous!

Hopefully, your friend will be ok as well!

Chuck,
I am so sorry to hear that your friend was injured so badly. We have two machinists out on disability due to being hit on their motorcycles. It has made me more aware to watch for them.

Looks like you have all in order. I'd better get on the ball. I don't even have all of that done and my surgery is before yours.

Has anyone had a second ADR surgery on an adjacent level?

Grusse Got Chasswen. I want to wish you good luck on your decision and trip to Germany. I must say you have selected the very best surgeon. You're in the best hands! Bring towels for the hospital (1 of each size). Bring a bunch of DVD's and a portable DVD player or laptop that has a DVD player. The only english TV channel is CNN news (gets old). Don't forget your camera. You'll need euros cash, not many places accept credit cards.
Best wishes for your friend in the MC accident.

Ken
