Message from Neko, yo.

24 posts in this topic

Alright, guys, or whoever comes around here. I actually got some bad news to lay down. It isn't SUPER bad, so don't go fantasizing worst case scenarios, so I'll just spit it out (in large, strung-together chunks).

 

Neko busted his kneecap during work. He was apparently going to see to a cup that was leaking in a mechanical room, rushed to the spot and tripped over a concrete slab or boiler pipe and... well, you know.

 

As of this typing, he is awaiting his time to go into surgery. Said something about morphine probably getting close to zonking him out, and he would probably come to right before surgery would start.

 

So yeah, if any of ya'll were wondering where he got to... now ya know. I certainly hope he gets out of this unscathed.

Hey all. I'm using my Wii to post so I'll be brief. (yeah right)

 

Surgery went fine on Thursday. My kneecap was shattered to peices and the fragments pulled above and below where they're supposed to be. Recovery is going to be up to 6-months or more.

 

Right now my leg is almost totally imobilized so I have to use a walker to get around. I also cannot get in to my room ATM because I happened to be rearranging it at the time and can't get around the crap piled up. Dad thought he'd go ahead and remodel it slightly to give me more storage and to accomodate the walker.

 

I haven't updated my status because in the hospital I was more out on morphine than awake.

 

I haven't felt like using my work laptop because it's kind of a hassle to set up due to being stuck in a recliner all the time. Also none of my stuff is on it. I'll probably get desparate and have the folks hook me up at some point. Ought to find out where my work BlackBerry got to since I got home and charge it.

 

Oh and using a Wiimote to "type" hurts my wrist and just sucks.

 

Signing off for now.

 

(I'll correct some of what Sasuke posted later)

 

PS: FUCK NEW SUPER MARIO BROS.Wii X(

Sheesh, guess I'll just copy/paste the convo next time instead of conveying it in my own warped way :banghead:

 

Anyway, good to hear it all went well. Sucks that you'll be spending half-a-year-ish recovering, but I guess that's a small price to pay in the big picture and whatnot.

Don't sweat it, 99% was spot on.

 

The parts you were off on were that I was trying to save some semi-important crap from MY cup that was leaking.

 

The other thing was what I tripped over...but at the time even I wasn't sure what I acutally hit. The folks at work said it was a valve off of the hot water heater that was right friggin next to the door. They said I hit it hard enough to destroy it. I also know it's also not a major thing for them to fix.

 

The worst part is for me once my kneecap can support weight & tension without coming apart again. I get to go through the agony of forcing my knee to bend again and getting the leg to support weight. Yeah, I'm REALLY not looking forward to that.

 

I just realized that I haven't updated Gimp (aka ISH) since BEFORE going into surgery. :banghead: I forget I do have Twitter occasionally. (and that Gimp practically LIVES on it)

Yikes... fucking OUCH, man. Hope the healing goes smoothly... I still can't bend my left ankle certain ways after I broke it once.

 

Also, interesting to hear that ISH lives on Twitter. Maybe it's time for me to get on it.

Glad to hear that your (mostly) ok. Hope healing goes well and smooth, and faster than expected too. Don't get all hyped up and addicted to those pain killers now.

 

Also, whats wrong with New Super Mario Brothers Wii?

Yeah, atrophy sucks, yo.

 

And if ISH basically LIVES on Twitter than I might consider entering the twitter scene myself as well.

 

I was also going to question the NSMBW like SB has, but, having not played the game, would not know why you would want it fornicated besides the possibility that you have a semi-secret hatred of penguins.

 

Anyway, try not to sweat the bridges to later be crossed and all that jazz. Try to make the best of your situation and stuff. When you start feeling better, or, heck, right now, you could give as your mailing address and we can all send you brownies or somethin'.

 

Or porn.

 

Or brownies with pornographic images imposed on them.

Update>

 

The the wrappings, the gauze, and staples all came off today. The staples weren't as many as I thought, going from just below my knee to about 3-inches up my thigh. The bad thing was after the wrappings and gauze came off, I came close to passing out twice. Thing it was due partly do to the change in blood pressure from having my leg tightly wrapped (debatable) for so long and my normal meds which I only started taking half the dose yesterday since the mishap. Took a good long nap and am doing better, though the knee is achy from being jostled around today.

Good to hear you're doin' better, Neko. Just remember next time that when breaking bricks with your appendages, you need to eat a Super Mushroom first. :P Also, you can still call me ISH if you want; I still call you Outey half the time. :P

 

And to everybody else, yeah, I basically live on Twitter, if for no other reason than I don't have time to browse messages longer than 140 characters too often anymore. For instance, I've had to serve, like, 15 people and sort the mail in the time it took to read this thread and write this reply. :P I've been lurking a bit since Kaizen joined me on Twitter but not too much.

 

Email's also still good if you wanna get a hold of me, and the Twitter's at Joshua Thompson (skulldaisygimp) on Twitter if that's somethin' you're interested in.

 

Good to know everybody but Outey's still kickin' (Hah! It's his leg! :P); I'll see you all on the flipped side. Have a nice day!

Yeah, I found it kind of odd that Neko kept callin' ISH by his other name. Apparently, though, Insaney is only known as such by those of us in this goofy circle we've had going for a decade or so. (and even if you're more comfortable with Gimp, ISH, I think I'll still call you ISH, because gimp makes me think of those plastic ribbons you can tie together to make key chain ornaments)

 

Then again, Neko is also weird with names, such as his insatiable urge to change them :banghead:

 

In any case, good to hear the recovery's been goin' along, Neko, yo. Staples sound kind of unpleasant combined with flesh, but I suppose whatever works, right?

Gimp, ISH, Insaney, whatever. I always refer to myself in the third person in BOTP as "the Hunter" so it's all good. Hell, you can even bring my real name into it if you really want. :P

 

I've decided to call 'Verse by a different random iteration of one of his names every time I refer to him from now on, myself. Just to keep things interesting. :P

 

Have a nice day!

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! (No, really it is.)

 

I got word from the doctor that I can start walking on my leg again... He doesn't want me to BEND it, but I can walk on it.

Psh why would you bend your leg anyway? Crazy doctors...

 

Maybe the doctors wanted to make sure he wasn't a super secret solicitor of the Simon Says Society, yo.

I really can't think of anything else to say. The situation doesn't seem like a good one to joke about XP
