Too tired to really blog about anythingi in the news, but the one 'interesting' thing is that my left foot hurts.


Well, I had what's known as a 'partial matrix' performed on my foot yesterday. It would seem that while I was in my coma that my toenails on my big toes (in medical terms it's sometimes called the great toe) decided to become ingrown.

What prompted the semi-surgical procedure yesterday was that I had developed yet another infection and the doctors are busting their humps to keep me away from anything else that would complicate a kidney transplant.

So...part of the toenail was removed. And dispite taking Percocet that was prescribed for the neuropathy that's brought on by dialysis, it sucks to walk.....at least for the next week or so.

Oh well - at least it wasn't another stroke, right?

Sorry if I grossed anyone out, but it's the only thing happening right now. I'm still working on getting my strength back and I've returned to school; I'm taking one (and only one) class this quarter.

So far, school is going okay - I've got my first midterm a week from this Friday so I'll be studying over the weekend.

And when I'm not studying, I'm helping my wife with her just-started insurance business - mostly updating her policy holder's files, faxing stuff, etc.

Oh and I finally did get my bass into the shop to get adjusted and re-strung. Now I just have to get my amp out of storage and work out a time to practice without annoying the neighbors or the family.

The initial protesters setting up their 'Tents of Outrage'. That open spot between the tents and the tree (just out of the picture to the right) would be later filled by the tents of 'KLSD 1360 Air America Radio' and 'Activist San Diego' to occlude Protest Warrior from being seen.

The big-ass flatbed truck that's needed for....what was it again?

Oh yes - the obligitory 'Bush Lied' sign....the truck was used as a stage for the lame music that was played in between the various speakers venting their spleens.

And here's a shot of me after dealing with my messed up hair right before the protest began: Mikey sans hair

(I had to pretty much buzz off all of my hair since I left the hospital with what I referred to as a 'Flock of Seagulls look'....I'll post the 'before' photo as soon as I locate it on the computer.)

UPDATE: As promised (a little late though), here's the reason why I got that 'buzz cutt' last month.....the 'Flock of Seagulls' haircut that I had when I emerged from the hospital.

Ugh.....talk about bad hair days!

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
