:whawhat: Dude how does that even happen? or maybe I dont want to know. At any rate that sucks. Ive been the last few years and its always a good time. My sister lives out there and usually works the VIP tent next to the main stage but she got this yr off so looks like were payin for our own drinks this time lol. We'll have a beer for ya JuiceI was planning on it.......until a ruptured colon sent me to the ER for an emergency operation on the 1st. Probably wont be in the saddle for another few weeks, if not month(s). :-/
And I just mounted my new saddlemen seat too and was hoping to try it out.
You guys have fun. I went last year and was surprised how huge that event was.
And that thing is as much a music event as it is a motorcycle event which is great when you have seen all the Harley's and black leather fringe chaps vendors you can stand and want to just sit and chill to some good music. lol
Mother of God... You could have spared me the details, LOL but I guess I did ask for it. I thought the bout of dysentery I had Iraq was bad but it sounds like I got off easy. I hope you have a quick recovery bud and your back on the bike soon. Ill have a trip report up after we recover from what Im sure will be a very evenful weekend.One way it happens is you get diverticulitis and one of the infected pockets bursts. That's how all the cool people do it anyway. lol
I suppose it could happen from a gun shot wound or even a auto accident if you got impaled with something. Almost everyone develops pockets in the colon (diverticulosis) but when food get trapped in there and gets infected it becomes diverticulitis.
I can no longer eat food that doesn't digest like corn, strawberry seeds, peanuts, popcorn, etc. because they get trapped in the pockets and don't digest.
Ive always had kind if a tender stomach but that night i had extreme pain in the stomach and some vomiting. I knew I couldn't afford a big hospital bill so I waited til Monday to go to the doctor. Big mistake! A ruptured colon has been known to kill people fairly quick without surgery. All the doctors and nurses said how lucky I was to be alive.
Doctor said yesterday that I got this stupid boat anchor they call a wound vac on me for another three weeks at least. I'm going to try yo see if the hose is long enough for me to throw it in my Kreiga backpack so I can ride when I feel a little better. Lol
Have fun and give a report on how it went.
