I thought Pete was just about fully recovered from the Reaper attack on his life last year. I learned last night that this is not the case.

Pete still has shrapnel inside his body that restricts his movements dramatically. If he tries to be too active, he can have a relapse.
05:29 AM #
Sue has been monitoring the un-removable shrapnel since he was first injured. Without being able to perform surgery, she can do little else.
05:32 AM #
There are at least two bits of metal stuck in Pete's body that Sue knows of. One is near his right kidney. The other is near his spine.
05:35 AM #
Now that I'm back from my diplomatic mission, Pete wants to head back to The Farm Colonies where he can be a more hands-on leader. #zombies
05:38 AM #
If he should go anywhere, it should be to an O.R. so he can have those bits of shrapnel removed. Too bad there's no such thing anymore.

Meanwhile, Sue has set up a satellite clinic next door to make better use of her time here. Nicked-up scrounge teams come by often. #zombies
09:34 AM #
Troy, who Pete put in charge of day-to-day administration of The Farm Colonies in his absence, is here for their weekly face-to-face meeting
09:37 AM #
Pete uses my radio room as a control center of sorts. He's able to use the secure radios we scrounged to manage our whole alliance. #zombies
09:40 AM #
He also makes his HAM radio addresses from here. They're relayed up to the tower on Rib Mt. for broadcast to other zompocalypse survivors.
09:43 AM #
Since his injury during the Reaper attack last year, Pete's role as a symbol has grown. He knows it and has borne the responsibility well.
09:46 AM #
Troy, Sue, and I have convinced Pete not to risk trying to travel back to The Farm Colonies. This place is almost as safe, I think. #zombies
