Hi, been a long time....
« on: May 11, 2018, 09:24:32 PM »
Hi all,

It's been a long time, I've missed GP Bikes a lot. Didn't mean to drop off the earth for so long. I've missed using GP Bikes with DST so much!! I haven't had the best last couple years. Some of you may remember I am a little person with a bone disease Osteogenesis Imperfecta (O.I.) in a wheelchair, bones break easy. I broke my right leg at my hip twice beginning of 2016. My aunt, grandmother and my sisters long time cat which was like her child all past away. Another sisters husband had a heart attack. I put on weight for some reason the summer of 2016 which no one can explain, since it was random and nothing had changed. So it got harder to hold the controller to use GP Bikes, in the way I like to play. The end of 2016 and the first half of 2017 my dad was in and out of the hospital.

In October I had bad accident coming out of a resturant with my dad and younger sister. It was bright from the setting sun. Driving my chair around someone holding the door, I miss judged. Couldn't tell the different in height between the curb and the parking lot. My first reaction to the chair falling was my chair is to light, a second later I fell, my chair went off the curb sideways. Hitting the parking lot with me kind of bouncing a little hitting the ground on my left side. My sister and dad got to me in seconds, I had her roll my over and I was still seat belted, unseat belt me. Everything on me hurt, had a hard time breathing. I did a assessment to myself telling my sister. I had broken my left lower arm, my left leg at my knee was broken, I knew I broke some rips on the left side. And I did something to my back. A woman from inside the restaurant which was a respiratory therapist came out to help my steady my breathing and keep me calm. Police and Ambulance was there in minutes (Police happened to be driving by) Looking back at it after I was able to tell my sister what was wrong I think I went in to shock, my memory starts going what happened next. I got to a close hospital where I live, I was over medicated with pain killers (Opiods don't with for me, they don't get rid of pain) I was there 7 hours or so as I was told. They said I was sleeping, I was then moved to another hospital. Where my specialist doctors are, about 45 minutes away. By the time I got to the second hospital ER, they tried to wake me. My sister tells me, with in a minute I was rushed to a trauma bay, and had 20 people working. I was going in to respiratory arrest. They asked my sister and she said yes to put my on a ventilator. My lungs were start to no longer taking in air for me.

I woke up 2 days later, on a ventilator. Using my sisters phone to draw and later type out words. I ask where was on, I remember what happened the fall. Just nothing after that. Then she told told me. I had broke both bones in my left lower arm, clean through, I broke several ribs on the left side. I broken my left leg above the knee and my knee got hurt. And I fractured T9 in my back. I was on the ventilator for 6 days, was in ICU Trauma / Burn for 3 weeks. My left lung clasped, had to get a chest tube to drain the fluids building up in my chest. Got a blood clot at my left leg break. Had to be given blood because of bleeding from T9. My lung was re-inflated.

I ended up having a back brace, a leg brace, and a arm brace. I looked like a partial Star Wars storm trooper. lol Had the back brace on for 3 months, got a projector so I could watch movies on my ceiling. lol Leg brace for 3 and half months. Arms brace for 4. I lost a lot of feeling in my left hand. I can use to fine just can feels things like I use to. My left arm and leg are still really weak, arm more so.

While I was in ICU my dad had to have emergency surgery. Since a previous hernia surgery healing got infect. Because he ripped it when my chair fell. My 75 year old dad lifted my couple hundred pound chair in one go to put in back on it's wheels. After I was out of it laying on the ground.

In February I got sick, and since my lungs had been through and my body was still weak I got RSV. Which is a lung respitory virus which usually effects little kids and old people. I was in the hospital a week in ICU again. Also on a ventilator for a day and a half. But this time I was able agree and say old myself. :)

And through all of it my little sister never left my side.

I've been trying to recover since Mid-November. I still have a lot of pains, but I'm much better. :) Hopefully I'll be around more. And reteach myself DST numb hand included. :D

Just missed GP Bikes, and the forum a lot. I'm still here! :)

Yay the king of DST is back!  :)

Hi Klax, sorry to hear you and your family have had such a bad time but great to hear from you again.
There have been a few more people experimenting and seeking the Nirvana riding mode recently. Hopefully they are still here.

See you on the track again soon  8)

Yey! Klax is back! ;D 8)

Sorry to hear about the seriously rough time you and your family have been going through... great to see you back again mate! ;)

Look forward to seeing you back on track with DST, and like Nick has said, their are a couple of guys that are very interested in DST control(I think they have posted on your DST Journal thread), so you shouldn't be the only guy on track with DST now.....

Great to hear from you again my old team-mate/wingman.... Welcome back buddy! ;D

What a story.
I'm glad you're doing better now.
I stopped gaming (and GP-Bikes)

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. :) Missed GP Bikes a lot.

Was practicing DST having to hold the controller a little different then I use to. Since my hand has lost feeling compared to what it was use to, I'll just pretend it's arm pump problem. lol
