bunnyman666 Posted April 29, 2018 Share Posted April 29, 2018 I have been absent for awhile. There have been several reasons why this has been the case, and a few have even wondered why. My health and subsequently my goal tending future is in doubt at the moment. My health has been in steady decline since the last of January and has been in crisis since the end of March. A dust up between a fellow poster and I illustrated the fact that I need my energy to get well and that I was suseptible to letting things get to me. Me taking the bait into a senseless argument was a sign that I needed to take a break. That was on me. The fact that I may wake up Tuesday morning without a colon shows that I have not had much worthwhile content to post. After all- this is a goal tending forum, NOT a colon health forum. Most of my focus has been spent on trying to beat my disease. I have been literally existing at this point. I finally got better advice from more competent physicians, but waiting for the advice of a quack doctor to take hold most certainly delayed my progress and has contributed to the fact that I may lose my colon. Several doctors are weighing in on this and the decision will ultimately come tomorrow. I don’t know what the future holds for hockey or my two businesses. I have been told that once the intestines get reattached and after ample healing time that hockey will be in the cards, but my fitness has left since the flare ups. I don’t know that in the cruel world of reality and drop in hockey that I want to have some downright humiliating outings as a goalie during my rehab. It looks like it could be up to a year from when I had last played is when will I may return. That is a long time for an older gentleman like myself. I will give it a try most likely, but am prepared for some very frustrating times. Part of me doesn’t know if my pride can take that... I am not trying to garner sympathy, but I do feel that I have needed to explain my abrupt departure as I logged in and saw a few directed comments about things I have posted about. I will most likely not comment much on this topic and will likely return to my status as a lurker. Again- with not much current experience, the relevance of my posts would not add much.
