Those big blue caps were made for Pass DIY

I still have 6 of them sitting in a parts drawer for the last bunch of years...

Nice to have some help while you recover! All the best

Thanks. I was more lookig to excuse slow progress, but appreciate the well wishes anyway.

I hate empty space in an amp.

As ZM requested that I post upon liberation from the hospital, I'm getting released later today. Amazing improvement. I have less pain than when I checked in. My daughter is definitely going to learn about terminating leads and mechanical assembly.

As it turned out I wasn't to be free long. I expected a bit more pain on days 3-5, but when my legs stopped working I went back. There were a few days of terrorizing the nurses once my legs stated working again. They had silly rules like don't get out of bed without help. Returning from the bathroom I was invited to sit in the recliner, which I noted they had just added an alarm to tell them if I got up. "I'll stay in bed since you alarmed the chair." "There's an alarm on the bed, too." "You realize that this means war! I'll sit in the chair." In 15 minutes I had disabled the alarm in the chair, got up and disabled the alarm on the bed. They were more than happy to clean me and the bed up if I couldn't hold it for the time between hitting the call button and them arriving, and somehow not understanding that at 55 years of age I am not interested in messing myself if it can be avoided.

Now I appear to be home for good. The repeat hospitalization means I won't get to spend as much time teaching my daughter the finer points of crimping and soldering, but my son made a surprise appearance. Spending time with the kids is a better thing to do, anyway.

Bones, that's always the hardest part for me. I have a hard time controlling myself while I feel good and don't notice that I have reached my limit until it is well past. Hoping to do better this time.

Will post progress photos as it happens.
