I've Got a Thinking Problem

My name is Davis MacLeod Haines. I was born and raised in Alabama, I live in Chicago, I am in a band called whysowhite (whysowhite.com) and I believe in Love. This is my mind.

Wake Up With Me

Tomorrow, when I wake up, I will officially be one week from the first of my last two major surgeries. This surgery, however, is much larger than the second. I am finally going to have my colostomy reversed.

Part of the aftermath of the accident was that I was going to live with a temporary colostomy (Wikipedia link for those interested). I had some organ damage in addition to the pelvic and femur fractures, but my family kept it to themselves out of respect for me.

Well, I am happy to tell y’all that I went to the trauma clinic today and my surgery is in fact next Thursday! Groundhog’s Day! I am so pumped!

I’ll be in the hospital for a few days afterwards until I am released to recover for about a month at home (and it better be a month, ‘cause I’m going to SXSW even if I show up like this). Once I heal/once I’m back from SXSW, they can do the less severe pelvic plate removal. Once I’m healed a week or so from that, I’m headed to Chicago for some unfinished business….

Now here’s where you come in.
