Thumbs up Re: ATHEIST GUITARIST RAND BURKEY INJURED

Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far. It really sucks not being able to do anything like walking or sleeping normally. I can play my guitar a little though. I am excited for the day when life will return to normal for me. It shouldn't be much longer. I"m walking better now but still have strict instructions to not do anything or I could damage the surgical areas which could result in the surgery needing to be repeated again.....and that was no fun believe me. I posted some videos at https://www.facebook.com/donate/107721763236731/ that demonstrate the intense agony I was in the day after the surgery. I sound like a whiner but I'm no fan of pain and having an eleven inch incision made in my abdominal cavity with a scalpel (and a few access ports surrounding the area) hurt like a bitch.


Peace out

RAND

I know. Embarrassing, right? I guess the ATHEIST fans are really behind me on this one! Actually, it's up to a whopping $55. I can now afford to buy those robotic limbs with lasers I've been wanting.

That is true. I speak with Kelly from time to time but we don't really share the same vision.
