Episode 6: A New Hope – The Taylor Spatial Frame

This X-Ray was taken about two weeks after the surgery to install the Taylor Space Frame. It was a stark reminder of how my life had changed. Photo by JM Watson

The Last Days at Christian Barnard Hospital

The bottom is an ugly place, but that is not to say that it is not useful to reach it. When I awoke on Friday morning, frustrated, in extreme discomfort and emotionally depleted, I knew that I had indeed reached the bottom. I also knew that there was utility in that and I felt just slightly better for it. Although the day was no less grinding, I did meet with Dr Laubser who would install the Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) around my leg. Finally it felt as if I was moving again, impossibly raising my head to breathe after drowning in chaos and despair.

He informed me that I would be able to bend my knee and weight bear post surgery. I would also not need to stay in hospital whilst the bones healed. Something which was not certain in my mind and a huge relief. I would be transferred to a rehab facility after about a week of observation and healing in the hospital. There they would help me to regain enough functionality to be released from hospital with the TSF. Exactly how long that would take or in what condition I would be was unclear. But at last there was hope and a foreseeable end to the hospital stay.

The next few days passed like decades. The same routine of early mornings, physio and doctors visits punctuated long hours of attempting to entertain myself by reading, watching YouTube and generally being an emotional mess. I wasn’t sleeping much better. I was, however, able to get a few patchy hours each night which helped. They transferred me to a private ward due to an infectious pathogen they had found in the tests they routinely did. The doctors said it wasn’t infecting my wounds but needed to isolate me from other patients.

The visits from my mother, sister, brother-in-law and friends sustained me, keeping my mind in check in the otherwise endless hours of neon lights and immobility.

The Taylor Spatial Frame Surgery

I transferred to Vincent Pallotti on Wednesday afternoon. Thursday Morning was an anxious time waiting for the surgery that afternoon. I knew I would be going back into a more painful state after the surgery. It meant more IV drugs and altered consciousness. The confused state precipitated by the drugs combined with the massive psychological trauma was not conducive to sanity. It took everything I had to hold on in those periods.

The Surgery was a long one and waking up in the recovery area was as confusing and unpleasant as I could possibly have imagined. I phased in and out several times before stabilising and I was in considerable pain. I could feel the same fractalization of reality between bouts of lucidity as I had when they gave me the Ketamine. Again I found the words of Dr Peterson useful: Shorten your timeframe. I tried to breathe and make it through each second. Not fully aware of where or at times even who I was.

My mother and sister were in the ward when I arrived, I was in considerable pain. The anesthetist had given me a PCA. It’s a large plastic syringe like pump that allowed me to self administer IV painkillers every seven minutes. This alleviated the pain somewhat but at the cost of lucidity. The pain would rise and I would push the plunger. Several seconds later I could feel my consciousness narrowing and be sucked back into the fractal world beyond. The struggle was real.

Hope, and Desperation Post Surgery

Surprisingly I slept quite well that night, but awoke feeling exhausted. Dr Laubser informed me that the surgery was a success in his eyes. A relief but it did nothing for the pain. The first physio session was unnerving to say the least. Bending the knee after almost 6 weeks of it being stationary was an uneasy feeling. It felt as though the whole knee was in a vice grip and it was more than i could bear to feel all the wires and pins inside me. I politely asked to end the session and subsequently broke down crying when the physio left. I felt stretched beyond what I could handle by the end of the day. Music helped to alleviate the burden of being until the sketchy sleep covered me.

The pain improved over the next few days but not by much. I was barely able to move around in the bed. Sunday was the next day with anything other than the routine of hospital life and visits from family and friends. The doctor cut away the protective bandage covering the TSF and I could see it for the first time. As always the sight seemed both shocking and intriguing at once. This thing before me, both biological and mechanical is what was left of the the leg that held a heel hook on Human Energy, a toe hook on Born into Struggle and hiked countless kilometers into mountains unknown. Now I could barely move it and not at all without pain.

The nurses also changed the bandages on the wounds still healing between the Meccano set and replaced the sponges around the pin sites (something I would later do each week on my own). Later that day the physio would help me move the leg over the edge of the bed and slowly lower the foot to the floor. The pain and discomfort was real. I was only able to sustain that for several seconds. I had touched the floor for the first time since the accident, a momentous milestone.

Dr Laubser also started the adjustment of the TSF, a process which would continue for 5 days. The support struts of the TSF which join the two rings together have a locking screw mechanism that allows them to be lengthened or shortened. A computer program determines the correct sequence of adjustments needed to correctly position the rings to align the bone shards. The movement is spread out over 5 days to lessen the pain and allow the body some time to adapt before the next adjustment. Whilst the adjustment wasn’t painful, it did precipitate more inflammation. I felt more pain at the end of the day after the adjustments.

The next few days passed much the same. The pain did begin to lessen and I moved away from the trippy drugs, thankfully. I did my first stand heavily assisted by the physio and with all my weight through my arms on a walking frame. I was only able to do one stand the first day. Progressively adding two more the next day and three the day after that. The journey back to the mountains seemed impossible. I was still in a dour mood for the week after the surgery, despite the progress and the hope it had brought.

The Last days at Vincent Pallotti Hospital

By the weekend I had recovered a bit more, I was in a lighter mood when My birthday came. I ate burgers with my mother and sister and although I was still distraught, I was eager for the transfer to the Rehab facility.

Love had been lost and purpose had been expunged from my life, all that was left now was suffering. Thankfully I had asked for a copy of Mans Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, which I had intended to read whilst in Rocklands. His words brought some dignity back to my mind and remembered in me some of the thoughts which I had cultivated over the few years prior.

” When faced with unavoidable suffering, suffer bravely” Viktor Frankl

Damn how I tried, through the tears and the pain. Looking back on that period I understand that I succeeded in rekindling hope. At the time, however, I could not see the forest for the trees. The forest had apparently seen me and was preparing the reveal itself. After spending a week and two days in hospital post surgery, I would transfer to rehab on Monday the 26th of August.

  38. How do I download the latest Security Pack for MacOS
    In the case of technology that is most modern, reliability is essential when it comes to large purchases.

    Security is a top priority for desktop and laptop computers.
    These platforms do have a fairly similar playing field.
    But it’s crucial to understand why Macs are so well-liked.
    The truth is security is more than just locking away
    files. It’s about making every effort to ensure they’re secure.
    Through Apple’s Defender application you can do just that. This
    is the most powerful tool available for everything from setting passwords,
    to monitoring your computer’s activity it’s one of the most
    powerful tools available.

    If you think about it, this kind of security is one that the majority of people would
    like. After all, who wants to lose access to
    their files because of a serious security flaw? Macs have since gotten over this security issue
    due to a myriad of reasons. For one, Apple has always provided an extensive array of security options, ranging from highly
    recommended protections like Time Capsule to more
    extreme options like Cryptocash. Time Capsule had a problem.

    It could only work in certain settings and was prone to being incorrectly set up.

    This program not only secured your documents but also managed to back
    up your files. Antivirus software must not just be capable of identifying dangers, but also
    prevent them from infecting your computer. The real flaw of
    this program lies in the manner in which it was created.
    It relied on the older Windows security framework that doesn’t
    allow block-based antivirus programs such as XoftSpy.
    This makes it vulnerable to attacks from viruses that have been a major cause of the rise of ransomware in recent times.

    So what do these mean for the future of Macs? It’s
    not possible to predict the future of Cryptocash when it runs on Windows or other applications that depend on the Windows security framework.
    But we can, at the very least, examine the most well-known antivirus
    programs and determine their performance against the latest threats.
    These tools are not as robust against most recent threats as Homebrew however, they can protect
    your PC. These tools are very effective against every type
    of threats to your computer.

    You should be concerned about malware. This virus is currently infecting many millions of computers around the world.
    This malware isn’t able to be removed from your computer.
    There’s currently no way to do it. Your computer might not even be
    affected. The malware will appear on your screen, as a popup that states “The application you’re trying to open is not able to be opened”.
    While there’s no solution to eliminate all the malware, it’s
    worth investing in a quality antivirus tool.

    Always make sure you have the most current version of your operating system running when surfing the web, downloading files, or
    using the keyboard on your desktop. If you don’t
    have the most current version of MacOS installed,
    you run the risk of seeing harmful pop-ups appear
    whenever you try to access certain websites. Additionally,
    if you are hit by malware that’s designed specifically for the MacOS the virus will stop your
    system from being able to boot from the installation disk.
    MacOS is known for its slow startup times. It is essential
    to use a program that will speed this up. Therefore you must
    be looking for the most current version of MacOS so that you can benefit from the
    security available to protect your computer from malicious malware.

  63. Telerobotics (TR) is a term you’ve probably heard previously, but it might not be one
    that produces the same understanding in your brain. The problem isn’t with your brain, it is the fact
    that the term is frequently misinterpreted in popular media and by non-technical professionals.
    Although “telerobotics” and “telepresence” are frequently
    used to mean the same thing (they are closely related concepts) however, the
    distinctions are important to know. In this first article,
    we are going to clear up some of the misconceptions and get a
    look at what, exactly, these two things really are before we wade into the ways in which these will affect
    the security/surveillance markets. Telerobotics
    is often confused with the idea that”telepresence (TP). Both have a role influence the way security systems in the future be able to act. What is the different between telepresence versus telerobotics? Telepresence lets you feel as if you’re in a remote location while actually being in a remote place. In the present, it’s about sending the highest quality video and audio to the remote viewer to recreate the surroundings where the recording and sensing equipment has been put. This type of solution will focus on increasing the amount of information the camera and microphone can recognize as well as bandwidth utilization. A few examples of common consumer-oriented tools are Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts. These are all essentially remote-controlled applications that can be used from your computer or cell phone. In addition to the emphasis on real-time interactions that is the current state of affairs in the surveillance industry. The audio and video feeds are as precise as possible and an individual is able to observe these feeds from any location. This could mean that the future applications of security for telepresence may be more about security control and real-time interactions in places that are not safe or sensitive for human hosts. Telerobotics takes the concept of telepresence a step further. If you consider TP to be a remote set of eyes and ears, then TR is eyes, ears, hands and feet. It lets you not only see/hear the location and interact with two-way audio, but also to interact physically with objects within the remote area and move the TR equipment around the remote space. This ability could drastically alter the way security and surveillance are done. Telerobotics could be programmed to open doors, interact physically with other people, or trigger a fire alarm if the situation calls for it. It can also be employed to welcome guests into the premises or perform any of a very wide set of jobs that typically necessitate a human being be in a specific location. Don’t be restricted to the focus points of a collection of cameras and wondering what is happening just beyond the scope of. By using TR the user can navigate the hardware wherever in the facility, allowing exactly the view needed on any given location, without the need for cameras. At present, the physical limitations of these systems would be similar to the majority of remote technology. Bandwidth between controller and TR setup, the requirement to keep the remote’s hardware and software and the considerations associated with getting the TR setup back into operating in the event of serious issue with remote are all aspects that will impact anyone using TR for security.

  64. Telerobotics (TR) is a word that you’ve heard of before but it may not have a clear definition in your mind.
    The problem isn’t with the brain itself, it’s an issue with the word is often misused in the mainstream media
    and by non-technical professionals. Although “telerobotics” and “telepresence” are frequently utilized to
    mean the same thing (they are similar concepts) there are some differences important to
    understand. In this first article, we are going to clear up some of the misconceptions and get a look at what, exactly,
    these two things really are before we wade into the ways in which these will affect the security/surveillance markets.

    Telerobotics are often confused with the concept of”telepresence” (TP).
    Both have a role to influence the way the future security systems act.
    What’s the distinction between telepresence and telerobotics?
    Telepresence allows you to feel like you’re in a remote area without actually
    being in a remote place. It’s currently about sending the highest resolution video and
    audio to the remote viewer in order to recreate the surroundings where the recording and sensing equipment have been placed.
    This type of solution is expected to focus on improving the
    quality of what the camera and the microphone can detect as well as using bandwidth.
    A few examples of common consumer tools include Skype, FaceTime
    and Google Hangouts. They are all essentially software for telepresence
    which can be accessed via your cell phone or
    computer. Apart from the emphasis on real-time interaction, this is effectively the current state
    of the surveillance industry. The video and audio feeds are as
    real time as it is possible to make and one is able to observe these
    feeds from any location. This suggests that future applications of security for the telepresence system could be
    focused more on security control and real-time interactions with areas that are sensitive or
    dangerous to human hosts. Telerobotics takes the concept of Telepresence one step further.
    If you consider TP to be a remote set of eye and ears, TR comprises eyes with
    ears, hands and feet. It lets you not just be able to hear and see the location,
    and also communicate via two-way audio, but to interact physically with objects that are
    in the remote location , and also to navigate the
    TR equipment around the remote space. This ability could drastically alter the way surveillance
    and security are done. A telerobotics system could be configured to open doors, interact physically with individuals, or even trigger
    fire alarms if the situation calls for it. It can also be utilized to greet guests to the premises or perform any of
    the many tasks that usually require humans to be at a specific
    spot. No more having views locked to the focal points of a set
    of cameras and wondering what is happening just beyond the scope of.
    When using TR, an operator can control the hardware from throughout the facility
    to provide exact views on any spot they desire
    without the need for cameras in a set. As of now, the physical limits of these systems will be similar to those of
    other remote technology. Bandwidth of the controller and TR setup, the necessity
    to keep the remote’s hardware and software and considerations tied to
    getting an TR setup back in operation should it encounter a major issue while
    remote are all considerations that impact those who use TR to secure
    their home.
