... to fresh air. But obviously you need to be at arms -- multiple arms lengths -- of other people for a while. All Spring, maybe. Glad to hear of the positive outcome and progress so far.

Can't wait to see you in the woods running with your tattered t-shirts. Get strong and do well!

Likewise. Sounds like a long struggle but we look forward to seeing you again.

Same here, Bob. Though I doubt you'll be coming out here for Soupbone's fall meet on the Wisconsin Cat Maps.

Thanks for the informed write-up on your condition and treatment. Had to Google a few terms, but a fascinating story. Especially for someone who is also having trouble with L2-L5 as I am. Do you have any more information on where the infection possibly originated? What's your guess?

Wishing you a steady recovery from this nightmare. It shows how easy it is, even for those most informed, to misdiagnose what's going on in their own body. I look forward to seeing you back at o events post covid-19.

Sounds like you're on the mend albeit slowly. Hope all improvement continues and you can get back to the outdoors in one form or another soon.

Welcome back to the outside world - even if there may be reasons to avoid it for a while. Hope your recovery goes well even if it´s just one step at a time...

Remarkable how the travails of others can make our personal passage through medical issues seem inconsequential after all; and your story, Bob, does that for me. It’s truly both terrifying and uplifting at the same time.

I’m so glad to hear that perhaps all the medical issues are finally sorted out and that you are on a path of recovery. While it may take some, I hope you reach the time when it all seems like a distant memory.

Thanks for the news. I've been wondering how you've been doing. All the best wishes for some steady improvement.

Looking forward to seeing you again, and glad that the worst of this may be behind you.

Wow, Bob, you have really been put through it. Best wishes that the worst is all behind you and that you will be getting better every day going forward!

Incredible story, Bob! So glad to have you back on AP, and to orienteering. Take it one step at a time! Hint: CW: May 3 - come visit IF it happens ??

Thanks for all the above. I'll work on accomplishing & logging some distances, however small, to measure ground gained. The advent of spring encourages everything optimistic as always.

I echo everyone else's good wishes. A rough go, but it sounds like you're now on the right path and getting and feeling better. Best wishes for a full recovery!

Bob, you certainly have been through a lot! I also hope that your recovery continues daily. Your outlook is one I would like to follow... to keep moving forward as best able and with perspective and optimism. Hope to see you around as Spring progresses.

Best of luck in your continuing rehab, Bob! Keep plugging away - we're all rooting for you!
