I can't ride for two weeks (well, maybe not quite that long) because of surgery #2 out of 3 last Thursday. The journey thus far to fix a silly little artery near one of my kidneys, that happened to grow over rather than under, has mainly been keeping kidney happy and preventing swelling/holding extra fluid. … Continue reading Two down, one to go, and other paradigm shifts
