Ready to go for a ride
Last Sunday washed the LT, took it for a ride and put the cover on it, won't be able to ride for another week or so. Been having problems snoring so loud I'd wake myself and everyone in the house. Sleep study did not reveal apnea but I snored so bad they couldn't beleive anyone could do that without apnea so they repeated it, same conclusions.
Turns out I have (well had) a deviated septum, broke my nose a couple of times playing football and sticking it where it didn't belong. Last Tuesday went in the VA hospital and they straightened my nose, roto rootered my sinus, removed my uvula and removed a big chunk of my soft palate. Snoring problem is a thing of the past, everyone in my household including me can now rest peacefully at night. Talk about a sore throat, worst ever. Pretty good meds, don't want to try to ride while on them. Tired of ice cream. Splints come out this Thursday. Not supposed to lift anything over 8 pounds, extert, the usual for 2 weeks. Might show them and ride the LT to the hospital to get the splints out. Just now starting to feel human and thinking about a ride so must be on the road to recovery.
