My partner Zack had a very bad mountain biking accident on Tuesday. It's going to be days at the hospital (where I've been sleeping, and will be until he gets out) months of recovery, not sure if insurance is going to cover it, and so things are emotionally, physically, mentally and possibly financially rough right now. At least he's alive (wore a helmet--a good idea) and his parents are amazing. With work being almost nonexistent for me, it's going to be tough to be jovial and carefree.

Don't worry about sending tons of "hope everything will be alright," posts because believe me, that's my hope right now, too, and I know at least most of you might care. I figured you all should know in case you wonder what's up, if I'm MIA or short worded and/or edgy. It ain't personal.

If you want to help, pray, dance, shake voodoo sticks (whatever the hell you're into) or just light up a pipe and send some of that good stuff (luck, mostly--which our family seems to lack on both sides) toward Reno.

I'll try to check in, but, family first.

I must admit my family will always be put first. Keep us posted on his recovery, may it be a swift one. As Rob said, if you need anything holler at your brothers my friend.

May those who look after him do so with skill and proper care such that his recovery is swift and without secondary complication.

And for you, may the stress, in all its forms, be manageable.

Take his bike away and get him a donkey. Much safer to ride and more of a conversation piece than a bike. Anyone can show up with a bike, but how many people do you know who roll up to the party on a donkey?

Hope he heals quickly.

Either a donkey or a stationary bike. All the best Kyle and hopefully a quick recovery for Zack.

Look. If you don't care, then you ain't no Brother. That's what makes this forum unlike any other. 'Nuff said!

Oh, that reminds me, I'm also sending 6.4 metric butt-tons of "hoping everything will be all right" your way.

My son did that 2 years ago. (I do not like mountain bikes) He has fully recovered. Make sure to get as much info as possible as to what you will go through caring for a recovering brain trauma victim. You have pipe smoking to ease the stress. All the Best, Marshall

Finally got a chance to come home. I really effing hate hospitals, and not for the obvious reasons. Yeah, they stink, there's sick people everywhere, but whatever, I lived on the streets, and it's kind of the same deal. It's more watching the "system" at work, the overworked (or incompetent) nurses, the vibe, the food. pale

So, there's a third surgery for Zack's arm scheduled for Monday or Tuesday. He's recovering okay so far, drugged-up, hurting, bitchy and demanding. Ran around some today dealing with is work getting doctor's notes in (so he can keep his job), going to have to file with FMLA to try and get money so we can pay rent, etc. Got a chance to go smoke a pipe, get a real dinner, etc. That was nice. Friends have been good to me. Also nice.

You guys are awesome, thanks. Some people treat my relationship like it's some silly, fake, temporary thing (after 10 years... yeah right) or that it doesn't mean much, and sometimes I find it embarrassing to talk about or I feel like people think it isn't real--or it's just some political football. Seeing someone you care about in pain and wondering about what it'll mean financially is heavy stuff. It's pretty g'dang real. I've cried with my family trying to figure it all out, along with other health problems on both sides of the family, his and mine...it's been hellish. I have to be the strong one for a lot of reasons, and it's an interesting predicament for sure. I got thick skin and broad shoulders, fortunately.
