I am very sorry to say that I broke the edge of my pelvis a few days ago. 🙁
Making use of the ceasefire this last Saturday (9.8.14), I could finally take my kids on a bike ride to the new extreme bike park near us, yet at some point I fell bad on my right side. 🙁
Was cleared by ambulance to a hospital.
X-ray showed several fractures in the “acetabulum”.
And so my sexy pelvis has now an addition of three big platinum plates 🙂
And I am neutralized for about six months 🙁
The good news is I am expecting full recovery!!!!!
I will have limited access to internet and email, but I do thank all who sent their regards!.
I will occasionally try to update on my recovery.
Very important to be optimistic, and keep smiling!, at least when not in pain.. 😉 here’s a selfie demo..
Managed to SIT for the first time!
Finally managed to…. (TMI…) 😉
After SEVEN DAYS!
Didn’t realize the body could hold in for so long… 😉
Manged to get into a wheel chair! I am mobile again!!.
Being so, I started “exploring my environment”..
Found Adi Zimri, a wounded soldier.
An RPG “missed” him, but fractured his leg when exploded. Now he just wants to heel so he can return to his unit.
What a HERO!!!
Here’s a selfie of us 🙂
Turns out I have another small fracture, in my right elbow.. :-(.
will make recovery more challenging, as I will have less control of the walker.. 🙁
GOING HOME TMRW!!!
Gaining resilience and retaining stamina, I achieved short walks with the walker, and so convinced the doctors I don’t belong here any more!.
Being semi-mobile I used the opportunity to visit Yusuf.
Yuusuf is a Sergeant Major in tank battlaion.
Yusuf was wounded on 28.7.14 when a projectile fell next to him, killing four of his comrads, next o Gaza
His main injury is loosing the bottom of his foot.
He is facing about 3 months of very painful process of reviving the flesh of his foot.
Every day he faces new horrible pains, and at the end he will only have partial walking ability.
But he takes it all with amazing powers, and his only request is that he returns to serve once healed.
WHAT AN AMAZING PERSON!!!
Yusuf is Druze, and ethnic minority whose loyatly to the State of Israel is higher then of many Jews..
We promised to meet again next year, in his village, Beit Jan!
Demonstating my ability to walk, though with much pain, on order to go home:
And the reward: I’M HOME!!!
THANK YOU to the my GREAT family for their support – my AMAZING wife!, Ravit, and my three WONDERFUL children!, Tome, Mai, and Shaked;
THANK YOU to the hospital staff for assisting my recovery. We already set a guided tour of Jeruslaem for next year, O.T.H.
And THANK YOU to all my extended family, friends, colleagues, and clients who expressed their concerns, and whishes for my quick recovery!
“I’LL BE BACK”
On my feet
Going over the photos, found a one especially funny collection I did with the kids when reaching the E.R..
I was on Morphium after all.. 🙂
September 24th: I am a crutches expert!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! שנה טובה!!
