16 posts in this topic

Well I ended up in the ER on Monday and they finally let me out today. smile It's tough sitting there looking out the window knowing that the spring bite is starting to happen and my boat has not even been touched yet. Just wanted to let everyone know that's where I've been and will get on and check out the all the post I miss after I get some good HOME rest.

My diverticulitis decided to pay me a visit on Saturday, I went to Urgent Care and they sent me home with some meds. Got up late on Sunday not feeling good but I'm the type who can handle a LOT of pain and just decided to go check a crappie spot with Anthony and Julie, well we got into the crappies really good (got some pictures and will put up later) but after about an hour of it I had to go home and see if I could just take a good [PoorWordUsage]. No go, stomach hurts, didn't eat anything since Friday night and being a tough guy and thinking I would just get over it. Monday came and I'm feeling worst (with the meds) and my stomach looks like I'm about 8 months pregnant, decided to call the primary doctor and he tells me to get to the ER right away.

I get there Monday at 4pm and never even saw a doctor until 2:30am Tuesday(and I have good insurance) but they finally got me in a bed at 4am, I didn't have a thing to eat or drink the whole time until last night and this morning with a good healthy runny squirts... LOL I was climbing the walls the whole time and just wanted to get out, I couldn't find anyone my age or anyone to talk hunting or fishing. So here I am with a very limited diet until about Saturday then I can start eating some more whole food and see how that goes. Oh yea, when they finally got me it they wanted to give me morphen or demoral and I said "the [PoorWordUsage] you are, I've been in this much pain for almost 4 days I think I can handle it until you start fixing it", Julie and my parents were so mad at me but I told them I've never done anything like that and don't want to start. Plus when they try to cut me open I want to be able to make that decision with a clear mind on not leave it up to my proxy (who by the way is listed as my primary for my Life Insurance) LOL

If nobody knows what diverticulitis is look it up or find someone who has it and ask them to describe the pain, it's the worst pain I've ever felt in my life and I've broken both collar bones, left wrist, 2 ribs and torn up left knee. It sucks!!!!!!!!

Thanks guys.... I got out yesterday and came home to take inventory of all the fishing and turkey gear and went right to bed. Woke up this morning around 11AM and called my dad and said I'll be over to pick you up, lets go to the hatchery and check out the walleye's and take a ride around the lake and see what's going on. LOL I got pictures of Anthony catching some fish (Can't post on here because of the lurkers) on Saturday (2 hours before I went in... LOL) and some of the hatchery (walleyes) and some of 7 tom's strutting their stuff off right next to my house today.. LOL I got the scoop on a couple of spots that are on fire right now from boat and hope to get mine going soon, just need some decent weather to open it up and get the new fish finder in and clean it up.

Lee - The birds here this morning were all fired up! Maybe they were cranky from being rained on all night? 2 jakes were getting real aggressive trying to muscle in on the longbeards - they nearly got a beating. Then they did single out one and ran him off twice. Lots of strutting and postureing. Then a group of hens were fighting a bit and everybody started gobbling. The whole time the biggest 2 birds just fanned out and ingnored the comotion. Neat stuff...

    • 44 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY. One thing you always can count on here at Lake Iwanttobethere is that after a lousy day there will be a nice day. Warmer, party cloudy skies and it is warm where I sit at my desk here in the den. The brown dog is at my feet, his paws on my right foot keeping tabs on me. Yesterday was a rain day and normally I look forward to rain days as they give me time to catch up on indoor projects. Rain days in the dead of winter however do nothing more then create work. Ground is frozen so all we have is runoff which here in the cabin means a wet floor in the basement. Overnight the water freezes and now we quickly go through the ice melt trying to get rid of the ice so it is safe to walk on the sidewalks.   Ranger Rick is reporting that his trail system at Samantha Lake is a mess. The rain and warm weather has eaten away at his trails. The short cut across Samantha Lake is not recommend to use as their is water on the ice and getting on and off the lake is unsafe at best. No fishermen on the lake yesterday but then again it rained more then a half an inch. Big hockey game on tonight the Wild against the Black Hawks. We will see if putting the seventy inch TV in will draw a beer drinking crowd. I would love to be there but have been under the weather the past few days and will be watching from home.   I have gotten a few e-mail’s asking about Lake Iwanttobethere and it is a good time to be a little more clear about the Lake. The wife has never had her named mentioned in the eleven years I have been writing about the lake. She told me she did not want anyone to know her name so she is always refereed to as "The Wife" of my four kids only the boys names have been used as they own business in town, the daughters have never had their names mentioned except the one who paints is sometimes spoken about as at Christmas she paints store front windows. None of the eight grand kids names have been mentioned but they are often refereed to a granddaughter number two or grandson number three. The two ten year olds are spoken about often and are refereed to as "The Tenners"   Almost every one in town is based on someone I know. A few of them have passed on but I still write about them, kind of my tribute to them. I could still be writing about my old dogs Bud and Barney as they left me with a ton of stories untold but I shared my loss with you over them and have moved on. Now I leave it up to you how much the Lodge and Resort are. One of you called the Resort a bar and it is far more then that. The Lodge is a place for members to hang their hats. There are lockers in the basement for their stuff and a chair in the Main Room to sit and be left alone. Not everyone drinks, for example everyday Tom sits at the end of the bar with a cup of coffee every morning and does his crossword puzzle. I never mention him much because that is just what he does. The FELLOWS on the other hand seem to be doing something all the time that you may find interesting. The Resort is a place for the guys to get away from the Lodge if that makes any sense.   The Resort has become like our Lake Iwanttobethere old guys home. Marv, Elmer, DOC and Vic are the core and none of them are married and they are doing just fine thank you. Chuck, Hammering Hank, Skinny and I are the next wave, the in betweeners so to speak. Married but still looking for a hideaway. Where is Lake Iwanttobethere? I’ll save that for another day.
    • Season has been over for awhile but now I have a couple of Grouse who just strut in my back yard taunting me. Duncan has tried to put the fear into them but no matter how quick he is they are up in the trees before he can get halfway across the yard. He does come back with that stupid lab look on his face so I guess everyone is enjoying themselves here late in the winter. I hope to hear them drumming this spring.
    • cool!!  and thanks again for the info!!  i look forward to getting it.
    •  Used to, then he lost it to Vince and Nick Cage in a Segway race on Tropicana.
    • Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
