Good luck for a full recovery! My brother in law had a stroke while bowling and was dead in a day, with emergency surgery too. You are doing amazing, including the crash and all. Get well soon!

WTF Dave!!! Haven’t been on this forum in a few months and so sorry to see this post. I’ve had two heart attacks and flipped an SUV last summer goin 90, but NOTHING near what youre going through friend. I think most guys would hang up their skull cap after that - I guess you got 50w instead of blood in those veins man... Even if some of them are idiots, try to listen to the doctors. (That will make one of us )
