The Man Himself

So, I was finally able to talk to my dad last night on the phone. He says the pain is a lot less than it was before, and not just because of the pain medication, but also because of how much pain he was in while they were medicating him for the wrong things. He loves the scooter, though he doesn't think the brakes are quite responsive enough. I suspect he will make modifications once he's not so loopy from the pain medication. And, he has a number of metal pins in his ankle, since they had to get in there and put everything back where it belonged, and so he's looking forward to giving metal detectors everywhere a hard time.

I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing ok.

You can have a new nickname for him now, you can call him "Scoot" or "Scooter"

Brilliant! I'm so calling him Scooter. That is hilarious.

My dad got no metal parts from his major back operation a few months back. I could win no contest here. Glad your dad is doing well, Auntee.

Also, it would be really cool if he could find a way to make that sound effect from the Bionic Man.
