Here are a few pictures that Guy got of Nate last night. He didn't get any of Nate laying on the ground after his crash but we can only hope that he gets one next time. Nate said he was sore today and he is doing OK and should be ready for the weekend. My shoulder felt good today and the pain is turning into a ache and I can tolerate that till the surgery. I hope that it holds up so I can get a good night of sleep tonight as that has been tough for the last couple of weeks and it will only get worse in the weeks to come. Off to lay down and get some rest. Later..

This is the Kinex Continuous Passive Motion chair in the picture above starts moving the shoulder the day after the surgery and I have to sit in for a few hours a day. It helps keep the muscles and tendons loose and prevents them from causing issues like stiffness and most of all a possible frozen shoulder. I will refer to this chair and the chair of pain as from what I hear that is what it will be causing for a few months. Boy this is some crazy crap to go through for for this stupid shoulder injury. I hope it all goes well and I am back to work and riding ASAP. Later..

Here is a you tube film of the surgery that the Doctor is recommending for me. Great, just what I need another surgery on top of the 47 plus I already have had. I have a Labral Tear or as it is called a SLAP tear. Oh well let's have done and get to work getting better. Thanks stupid trailer at work. Later..

Then last night was our team meeting and got a few things done and now we are looking forward to the race season to start. Can't believe that the racing will be starting in like 3 weeks with the Kenosha races. But as always a bunch of trash talking and a few beers and wine were on the menu. I was lucky as Nate came along so I had a designated driver for the way home so I had 1 more then I needed for once and did not have to worry. I like that.
Today I ran a few errands and bought Cece a nice carpet steam cleaner for Valentine's Day so she is happy. I was glad that Maddie and Jess came along as Maddie was able to carry the thing in and out of the store as my shoulder was not liking it. Then it was get home and the kids asking me to take them sledding, but to go chores needed to be done and they got right on them and got them done. Then it was off to the sledding hill and they had fun and we watched a few kids run over a few kids not paying attention and a few go over a little jump and them land and bust their ass and lay there. Good time and fun to watch. Now they are upstairs watching SAW 6. I will have to catch it later as I had to grill the tenderloin witch would had caused me to miss to much. Sounds as good as the first 5 so I am looking forward to seeing it. Now time to watch the Olympics. Later..

Here is a short film of Russell as he puts it blasting out of the gate. Russell was thinking his speed would cause him to be blurry and that i would have to slow down the movie. But I almost had to speed it up as he was going to slow. Maybe it is all that practicing he is doing on those Tosa trails. But I had to stop the film short as the next gate was getting ready to drop and I couldn't film the blasting speed of Russell's finish. Enjoy. Later..

The shoulder is feeling OK today and I still have not heard anything about the MRI that I had done yesterday, but no news is good news I guess. Well I know that it is jacked up as I tried to pick up a 5# weight on a scale with the bum shoulder and I couldn't. So there is something wrong and it is looking like a torn rotator cuff. But I just have to wait and see.
The kids and Cece did shovel the snow this morning as they wanted me to give the shoulder a break. Then the kids had to go to school and then I got the call at 12:45 from Maddie that school was getting out at 1:10 so I had to run and throw them in the back of the work van and take them home. They did shovel again when they got home from school and now 5 hours later we are looking at another 5 inches that they are going to go out and take care of in a little while. I feel bad as I usually take the snow blower out and clear the walks of the 4 houses of 80 year old ladies but I didn't want to irritate the shoulder. So maybe next time I will have Nate do it after I show him and I can trust him with it. Now time to watch the snow fall. Later..

Here is a short film of the random gate drop at practice Wednesday night. TW took a good tumble out of the gate but he got up and was alright.
I got up and got Nate off to Indiana with Bryan, Payton and Hailey for some bmx racing at the Hobart track. Nate is racing his 20 inch class, cruiser and a USAC Jr Development race again. He is looking forward to racing the Jr race again and I hope he does well again. It is also the Race For Life race today and that makes it a double point race. They have a triple point race tomorrow but they are heading home tonight to race at Elkhorn tomorrow. I'm hoping to hear from Nate some time this afternoon to get the results.
After Nate was gone I got my workouts in and then got a hair cut from Cece. I needed one as the last one was 2 months ago when I got it just about shaved off. It is short now but still longer then when I get it cut for the summer. Then it was run to Sam's Club for some much needed items. I have to say there are some real freaky people out there. The one lady kept taking frozen food and put it in her cart and then leave it in coolers and on shelves. I grabbed a few and put it back and then when I passed her and told her I glad to put the items she was leaving every where away she gave me the stink eye. But I did not see her leave anything else out where it did not belong. Then it was off to Pick & Save for the few items and last stop to Sara Lee for some Market Day items. Now I'm sitting back watching the Daytona Qualifying. Oh I love that the NASCAR season is about to begin. Later..

Nate and I loaded the bmx bikes and hit gate practice tonight. With the shoulder jacked up I dropped more gates then I rode. It felt better today but I have a orthopedic Dr. looking at it on Monday. Going to have a MRI done on it hopefully to see what it left of it as it feels like garbage right now. On Monday I tried to pull the prover trailer forward to put it on the hitch and it made a popping sound and hurt like hell. Well I hope it is just a sprain or something but it feels more like a rotater cuff maybe damaged. Just keeping the fingers crossed right now.
But Nate looked better and he was really getting out of the gate fast tonight. He kills me and most others that line up with him. We can't wait till the 2 bmx Nationals this summer to race the best in the area and see where we stand. Later..
