Lastest on my Spinal Injury

Went for my latest scan yesterday where the doctor was supposed to be blown away by the amazing recovery I'd undergone. In fact I was supposed to be healed enough to remove my body brace but alas it wasn't to be.

The scan showed lots of healing but it also showed all of the cracks in the vertebrae actually growing wider - it was quite disconcerting to see actually.

Anyway the long and the short of it is that I have to stop doing any form of exercise whatsoever (I've been doing a little bit of spinning on the bike in the gym) and I have to wear the brace for a minimum of another 3 weeks but possibly another 6 weeks.

You can see by the expression on my face how amused by this I am. Not to mention my expanding waistline on how much I need to get back into action.

On the positive side my road rash has almost healed up on my arm and my leg is totally clear without any apparent scarring. Shilpa is particularly pleased that I've stopped oozing/bleeding over the furniture the bed and the boys.

Anyway, off to Bali on Sunday for 10 days to see if I can get really fat.
