Thanks alot, friends are what in life that is important on one's list.
I have lost memory of accident things but am remembering things as time continues.

I remember laying on floor and covering my head with a big towel as the fire seemed to crawl around me then being sucked out just as it had exsploded, getting up beating room out that was left burnning. My wife screaming for me to get out. I didnot until all was put out. Was beach house and my neighbor finished when I got out . Left my hands peeled back , face small burn and my side alittle. I get bandages off today and find out if operation is a need again.

I can remember my hands being tied down, tube down my throat , people talking but cannot remember life flight ride on copter, dag it.

Anyway all is good and people that owns monster home I had been building have closed the gates awaiting me to finish it which is a nice thing . Good to beable to work on cars again soon.

Yup retyler homeowner waiting is a good thing however all things done has a reason behindwhat another does. This home is loaded with valleys and hips , all crooks and round roofs a handfull is willing to build it. This home is so cut up as well the owners have made way too many changes that all points on valleys, hips, ridges have rerouted where the land points were is why they couldnot find a builder to touch it . load bearing walls have been moved in need of an architect to redraw plans and his charge was $1000 per page . I was recommended to build it as thats kind of work that inspires me. Some day one will bite me but this home I near have finished framing.

FE have a nightmare ? You are a nightmare, lol. Your birtday hummm, and when was your birthday , same as every year I asome. The world has been abetter place being you have one as you do help others and see people in agood way if they are, alot of aholes lurking about.

I hate pain pills and refuse the full dose nurses describes and donot take them until I know when pain is coming. A burn will make one take them however I have a shot in place of a nasty pill when one can get hooked on pills.

I come here cause alot of good people also does, good info on cars as well always an intresting site to a full blow ford lover which I am.

It lightens my heart to know that you're healing and here chatting it up with us!

Off topic, but Happy Birthday Gary :)

Recode, shots over pills sounds like good logic to me, never woulda thought of that, but will remember...still hope I never need to find out.

Dunno if they ever use them for burns, but never hurts to ask- my son that had the heart trouble had wrecked his bike a couple yrs ago,hit the bars right center of his thrice opened sternum, luckily, just scrape/ bruised, but scared the heck out of mom and dad to say the least...anyway, they had topical lidocaine patches to numb the area without risk of painkiller sideeffects...dunno if they could be used past a burn area on heathy areas to help numb nerves downstream, but might be worth asking... Hang in there, hope you're out wrenching again soon!

Happy bd is not off topic, I say is a dead hit, so happy birthday as well Gary even though I am over say 30 mins.

I just got into another wing of hospital and out of intensive care room. Accually they had me in shower room after bath took over3 hours to get all my bantages off and rewrapped.
They are such in a hurry trying to get rewrapped, make wound bleed . I stated 3 strikes and ya out which didnot take long. I think after a few questions I beleive they are used to rewrapping coma patients. Not someone to be awake. Hands look uglybut nurse says looksgreat. Doc comes in morning. Nurse says I get off shots, on pills, make a fist , wrap bandages myself I can go home. I do that tomorrow I think.
I can put up pics but tell ya all is a big mess, hamburger still looks to me.

I got wife beside me in recliner, lap top, job awaiting , icecream and this site with friends. I think I am good to go.
Man people here die every night, sad place.

Ford4v I have had the patches for back operation, will try again. Now bandages off I can set for a site and thanks.

Good to see oldfart again. That 427 mustang below stang is still da bomb.
