Topic: Curby 2019

Dear fellow music lovers,

About two months ago I pretty much signed off from the forum due to health issues that were the result of an automobile accident in late May 2017.  I was rear ended by pickup truck that took out the tissue/cartilage in my right knee and damaged my upper back.  Later that year I developed A Fib that required blood thinners to control.
I managed to avoid surgery for over a year on my knee, but when I had my TKR (Total Knee Replacement) the blood thinners caused severe swelling and has slowed my recovery.
My love of music has taken a back seat these days due to my rehab which is progressing fairly well.  They put me on powerful pain killers that I still have to take, but I'm now on a milder one.
My overall health has improved and my goal is to play golf again with my Son in the Spring.  Please wish me well.

I still keep up with the forum although I don't have much to report.  I wish everyone a very happy new year and good luck hearing great music.

Re: Curby 2019

really good to hear from you but I had no idea you were in an accident. We have missed you and the music you have posted previously here. I hope that the recovery continues to progress, to be playing golf again is a great goal. Stick with it and give us an update again soon, know that we are hoping and praying for you

Re: Curby 2019

I wish you a full recovery as quick as possible.Thanks for sharing with us.Hopefully some good new music will help your mental attitude as well. As I find good music can make a positive metal impact on my day.
  Such a tragedy to have your life be impacted by an accident like that.That scares me as I am in the road all day for my work.
But I would bet you will get back into it (music) soon.
  Look forward to you being here whether just to read or participate.

Curby you still have the coolest avatar on the forum. I love that album and I would trade all the gear I have ever owned for that Martin he's playing. I would have to I'm sure. Nice to see you recovering and hope all continues to improve.

Re: Curby 2019

Should really update this thread title to Curby 2021...

Curby doesn't seem to have been on the Forum much lately - then again which of us has, as much as we used to? However, I've been in regular touch over the past few months, and he does assure me that he still looks in from time to time.

However, recently he's been having heart problems which have gotten pretty acute and so later today he goes in for surgery. I'll probably get it in the ear for blabbing, but I know he'll get a great lift knowing his old buddies are thinking of him.

Thanks for the update. Best wishes {{{Curby}}}!

Re: Curby 2019

Update,

Sorry I've been gone so long.  I was in the hospital for six weeks went by ambulance from Evansville to Indianapolis for open heart surgery,  I got out a week ago and have begun a grueling therapy regimen.
They put in a LVAD device so my heart is mostly Bionic.  My wife calls it Darth.

I've not listened to much much music except Scotish instrumental songs that Mike knows of and a little Billy Strings.
Thanks for any prayers, I could use any support.

Oh yeah...I've lost a 100 LBs.

Re: Curby 2019

Wow... It is extremely tough health issue to go through. So happy that you are recovering and able to get necessary medical help. Hang in there, Dear BonaFriend! Good thoughts and vibes to you.

  I have a closest family member that has an incurable chronic disease and just been diagnosed with another, much worse one.  i am still in shock and in denial.

Re: Curby 2019

Thanks for the update Curby. Still sending my best wishes!!
