My wife had me dumping large flower pots into a 30 gallon garbage can. That stressed my neck and caused my left side to get weak. (My left side was paralyzed at Mayo from a failed spinal surgery 6 years ago.) So, I was using my cane and the side of a building for support. My left foot dropped and I tripped and went on my forehead on concrete. I basically gave myself a concussion and whiplash. That was 4 weeks ago today. So, I'm trying to get over all that. I'm improving slowly anyway.

I just wanted to tell anyone that's interested, I was in the process of making 50 more sets of Under Hood Letters and 25 sets of the 2003-2004 Engine Cover Grilles. I have them all cut out and just need to debur them and have them powder coated. Then, get them heat sealed into the poly packaging.

It all takes time and the ability to do a good job of it. So... all I can say is "ASAP" at this time. :grin2:

DakotaDocMartin, did something like that 4 or 5 weeks ago ... fell on my left shoulder. Ended up getting a Cortizone shot or a Steriod shot, one or the other. Seems OK now. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

Well, I drove about 45 minutes to Crookston, MN this afternoon so I could get an MRI of my neck. They have the largest diameter magnet in the region so it has a bigger tunnel to squash a person into. They are going to try to find out what can be done for the 24/7 pain. I'm already taking Gabapentin, Mobic, Tylenol and Tramadol... plus a few afternoon adult beverages. That helps but it never goes away. I'm always around a "7" on the 1-10 scale.

They are thinking maybe some injections might help. In the meanwhile... holding two beagles in my recliner seems to help. :)
