    @Josephine, that humbles me beyond words. Should have shown them the jump off the ATV!!! @Clipless, That 29er is something else. I had given my old Gary Fisher MTB to my son. Couldn't stand to look at it. The 29er got me rolling , but it's nice to have it, and another old MTB I wanted when I...

    Thanks Jamie. I went to see my PT the other day to get my neck wrenched on, but he wasn't in. Instead, I talked with a knee guy, 2 months out and thinking he was wasting time in PT... He was only at 125* or so and thinking he was good to do it all on his own. I told him he needed to finish...

    We had wondered what happened to him over the years, it was good to be back in touch and we stay in touch. As good as family... Chris, it's good to be back in the fold here. I all but lived in here for a while it seemed. I don't have that sort of time to offer again, but I hope to inspire...

    KELLY!!!! Oh my goodness. When he reached out to us a couple years ago, it was amazing to meet his wife and kids... But when he sent me that bicycle.... Oh my. It was so unexpected, but it got me motivated to ride again. I don't even really think about my knee. I fell a couple weeks...

    [TKR] Roger got a new left knee

    Let me start this installment with good news. My daughter is in contention for a promotion within her group. Yes, after such a short period, and over many that have been there a while. Second, while my son had hired into a company as an intern, they have hired him full time with full benefits...

    [TKR] Walking on a treadmill post op

    Of course, I am probably the LAST person that should comment on this topic... First, was it your own doctor that said "NO" to the treadmill? Or some otehr person in authority? Personally, at about 15 weeks I was on the treadmill and jogging a bit at a time. I had already been on the stationary...
