That's deep.


Hey everyone! Meet my new friend. DVT. DVT is a nice little bloke who has decided to stay with me for a while. He's campin' out in my popliteal vein of my left leg. Silly rabbit! My popliteal vein is for venous return! Not dumbass emboli!

Oh well. Gotta deal with it. I'll just inject low molecular weight heparin subcutaneously into my stomach twice a day for 5 days and take coumadin indefinitely. That'll show that piece of clot who's boss!

Until he's gone, I can't ride a bike, fly in a plane or go anywhere further than work (gotta be close to a hospital for frequent blood draws to titrate my coumadin). Oh yeah, I almost forgot. This bitch likes to break off and travel around the rest of the body. He can cause a lot of problems such as stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or death. What a fookin' cracka! I'm about to go fishin' for him with a steak knife and a 40 oz. of St. Ides. Oh wait, I can't drink alcohol while I'm on blood thinners! Ha!

that sucks Corey:( I thought you mainly got that shit from sittin down too much? My cousin Josh had some trouble with a blood clot when He did football in college, but he is ok now, but maybe gay. Goin' down to New Orleans this weekend take lots a pics maybe entertain you while you are off yer bike. Hey at least you got the early diagnosis.

I feel like kicking someone's ass over this, which I realize is really absurd. Sounds like you need to come over and download my iTunes, watch Dig!, etc.

SOX said...

No, what you need to do is get really pissed off (already accomplished) and watch Fight Club. Then, form your own underground boxing clubs. Then, destroy the all of the major credit bureaus with homemade dynamite. That would show your little friend who's boss.

dude, that just sucks man.

I was so looking forward to our nice little fall riding tirated through wilderness.

no drinking hu,
uh, this isn't boding well for you for the whole beer ride dude.

I do apreciate your sponsorship for cross season.
of course I won't be as fast as you.
but I'll be loaded for the both of us while I'm racin your bike. how's that...

At least you can eat solid food and don't have to have to wear a cast because you thought you were superhuman, on the other hand you could die from your injury.

Be good,listen to the doctor and I'll have Debe Sue make you some pudding.

Cornbread said...

Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement. I will persevere.

Not so rotten said...

If you drank enought to begin with, this would never be an issue. Do you think my blood will ever clot?

Cornbread said...

No, but I bet your soul will.

ZDogg said...

Is a soul clot like a Bombaclot?

Sorry to hear your laid up, and then not being able to drown your sorrows.....
Yeah most people find out about clots through strokes or heart attacks so maybe its just as well they caught it now.

cornbread... I can probably come up with a scooter for you for the beer ride. yeah,
it's not a bike, but we can hide you in a pack of bikers and that way, you can at least, be involved...

think about it.
and if anyone gives you crap.
we can see how long it takes for them to pick up all their teeth.

it'll be like a game...

Cornbread said...

I need someone to pedicab my ass around. Just kidding.

I just talked to my doctor. I'm supposed to take it easy for a few weeks, but he said I may start back riding a little after a week. I need to check with him before next week.

Cory is the new Tommie Frazier

Tony T said...

Cory is cooler than Tommy Frazier.

Sorry to hear about the clot-that's such a bummer. CVO recently had a post on his blog about lot's of people wricking and or hurting themselves. Now you've got this crappy deal that keeps you off your bike. Maybe there is some kind of weird karma affecting all us Lincoln folk.

Hey, get better soon, buddy.

Cornbread said...

Yeah, I've had a lot of bad luck recently, so I'm gonna play the lotto tonight. It's up to 200 million and I'm due for some good luck.

The White Mexican said...

Yo Corey, Hope you get better! You got to show that turd who the boss is!!!Just don't cut yourself shaving...
we must connect sometime!

Cornbread said...

Hey Mitch! Yeah, give me a call sometime. Same number.
