Hello All, we've had some real situations come up in our lives lately!! Jo had 3 different "fade out" spells while riding her "bicycle" we thought it was just "heat and all her meds she takes for heart and diabetes"! Well the last fade out resulted in "1 broken and 2 cracked RIBS", the bicycle is fine, it was protected by her body, OUCH! :( She decided she needed to go back to a "recumbent trike" so we spent the last of our emergency money and found her a used, 2016 Terra Trike Rover X8 trike. The surprises weren't done yet, at the hospital for the rib injury they did a test found a heart enzyme in her blood stream (not supposed to be there), which meant she actually had 3 "very minor Heart Attacks"!!!! :O Due to a very small artery that is at the top of your heart that was totally clogged up! :( So she's out of the hospital and doing her heart recovery sadly starting again at Level ZERO. She can't do anything for a week, then short flat land walks for the next week with more and longer walks as the month goes on.
It will be 4 to 6 weeks till she can "ride" her recumbent trike again! :( Well, we'd been on one ride after she got her trike before the hospital visit and I decided that the "bicycle" I had wasn't compatible for riding together (the bike has much larger tires and it's much faster when it cruises), so I have SOLD both her bicycle and my bicycle and I found a great deal on a 2007 SUN (Sunseeker) EZ-1 SX recumbent bicycle, which is MUCH more compatible speed wise with Jo's TRIKE! :) So we are now back to riding recumbents and I changed the name of the blog to "Out and About on the Recumbents"! Here's a couple of photos of our "new to us" recumbents.
