The world as we know it is coming to an end on Saturday, May 21st by all predictions. I’m pretty much pissed off about all this. I really screwed up. I drove back to Pittsburgh on Monday as I had scheduled myself for a simple procedure. In no need of a trache or stoma anymore, I decided to have my surgeon sew closed my neck. I vaccillated on this decision as it provided an alternative airway, giving me a comfort level, albeit a false sense of security. I constantly worried about water from the shower entering the orifice not to mention the fact that any water sports have been completely out of the question. I returned here to Lake In Wood, immediately after the procedure. My thinking being that the following day was going to be the most miserable and I wanted to be in the RV prior to the onset of anything negative. And I was correct. My neck has swollen to proportions that I now could play the part of Shrek. I have to sleep in a chair, and I’m semi-miserable. All this to engage in kayaking, boating, and water sports. But honestly, there is a dash of vanity in there as I disdained the hole in my neck. Now all this was for naught as the end is approaching and by Saturday we shall all perish in some way. However, I have scheduled a day with Ryan. We are attending an alumni feat as a father-son team at his alma mater. I can’t think of a better way to “Go Out”! And if it comes as scheduled, I’ll be in hell so look for me there, as I’m hoping to see most of my acquaintances there with me.
